Michael Stevens enters The Create Unknown! The internet’s science dad and the creator of Vsauce joins us to talk about starting YouTube’s largest education network. We go way back to the origin story of Vsauce as a gaming channel through his decision to bring Kevin into the fold as Vsauce2. Michael continues to push the boundaries of the platform, and we hear about how that led him to innovate new video formats and projects like Mind Field and DONG. We also dive into the wave of Vsauce memes and what it’s like to be part of the culture of the internet. All this and more — along with the tragic cautionary tale of Donald Blow.

Check out Vsauce on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

“The Create Unknown” is a Vsauce2 production in association with Triangle Content.

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.
