In the wake of Vox Adpocalypse and the fallout from Carlos Maza and Stephen Crowder’s feud, YouTube has rolled out more changes to its automated content regulation and countless channels have been swept up in the mess — including Vsauce2. In this episode, we talk about how the brute force, computer-driven system is increasingly causing problems for creators who put out objectively inoffensive content.

We also talk about how YouTube is now deliberately passing over quality content as seen in the algorithm’s throttling of Coffee Break’s recent examination of public policy on vaping, and YouTube’s strange pre-crime stance on channels that use text-to-speech audio. Things aren’t all bad, though, as we celebrate Grandayy and Nerd City for sticking up for creators and using their stature in the community for good.

Along the way we discuss the first butt on television, Matt tries his best to get this episode demonetized, we get into the next big step for brands who want to be on YouTube, and Kevin plays the brown note.

“The Create Unknown” is produced by Unknown Media.

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.

‘The Create Unknown’ is the ultimate behind-the-scenes YouTube podcast. New episodes come out every other Thursday.  Listen for free on your favorite podcast app and on YouTube.
