We wanted to start off 2020 with a bang, so… Matt somehow got reported to the British police because of something that happened on Twitter. And THAT is why we need to talk about the state of the Boomer on social media.
In this special 90-minute kickoff, Twitter saga starts with a lighthearted quip, weaves in some other YouTubers like Whang!, JohnSwan and our very own Zalgaloo, and ends with Kevin having to fly to London to post bail. (Ok, that part didn’t happen.)
Then Kevin talks about the ‘New Guy’ comic that started as a tweet from animator Oney and turned into 2020’s first real meme. Kevin explores what’s *really* happening in those four frames and what it shows us about a host of different worldviews.
And thanks again for supporting The Create Unknown. You really, really do make it happen. Without you all, we’d be rotting in the Tower of London right now.
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.
