Half a million subs in one week. That’s the meteoric rise of one of YouTube’s most unlikely stars: Voiceover Pete. From humble beginnings on Fiverr to becoming a darling of the Memeforce and a full-fledged creator, Pete has been put through the ringer and come out a success — and that’s why we wanted to bring him on this special bonus episode.
We talk to Pete about his amazing story and his plans to forge a sustainable presence in the YouTube creator community. And things get a bit sentimental as the incredibly gracious Pete thanks all those who’ve offered a helping hand, including the father-son relationship that’s the foundation of his channel.

There’s a new dream job out there and it’s Creator. The allure of flexing your creative muscles in the limelight for a living is enticing young and old to jump on YouTube and start recording. But a lot can happen on the way to millions of subscribers.
In ‘The Create Unknown’ co-hosts Kevin Lieber and Matt Tabor take time off from getting millions of views on the education YouTube channel Vsauce2 to reveal how dozens of dynamic creators have successfully navigated the ever-changing, uncertain landscape of online media — and how others have been swallowed by digital quicksand.
Through intensely personal conversations, listeners learn what it takes to not only survive but thrive as a creator and in life. Interviews cover everything from getting started as a YouTuber to how you land that first brand deal and the realities of being a digital influencer.
