Quackity hosts Discord’s Got Talent, he’s been a grandma on Twitter, he’s raided games like Club Penguin and toyed with tech support scammers… and he’s had some bad experiences eating Lunchables. But behind Quackity’s comedic talent lies a purposeful and nuanced approach. In this episode we break down the hidden thoughtfulness at the heart of Quackity’s online persona and how he’s building a long-term career out of carefully-crafted ephemeral content.
From high-speed editing to a plan that includes having no plan, Quackity explains how he avoids patterns that lure creators into burnout and erode their content quality. Most importantly, we learn a lesson about the dangers of eating Lunchables and hear the origin story of chicken tendies.

“The Create Unknown” is produced by 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.
