Matt Tabor’s CV reads like a Mad Lib: entrepreneurship, academia, film production, woodworking and welding, international politics, and even professional bowling. In 2013, he drew on his long-time experience as Editor-in-Chief for a range of education publications to join Vsauce2 as a writer and producer. Matt is well-versed in both the creative and business sides of the industry, having represented talent and founded a 360° company that specializes in content, branding, and media production. He's the executive producer of the award-winning documentary film The Last Stop, and his writing and editing credits address public policy, the psychology of sport, old-time music, and international entrepreneurship. And to top it off, he’s also lived and worked in 8 countries spanning Europe, South Asia, and the Middle East, including several years employing game theory and risk management as a full-time poker player. He splits his time between Las Vegas and his 19th century family farm in Cooperstown, NY, and is equally comfortable discussing linguistic demography as the superiority of the cowboy boot.

Should Kids Be On YouTube?
Kevin and Matt discuss a weird situation with a YouTube celebrity going through life drunk on ego and influence... and it's really, really not what you'd think.It brings up important issues about the consequences of being a young creative with a public persona. How young is too young for YouTube? And are there problems even when a channel isn't even that popular? Kevin draws on his immense research and thought surrounding how people function -- in their own minds, in their communities, in their friend groups -- to offer a bit of perspective on how we might think about kids on the platform.Also, there's a kid getting pushed down and having his head sat on.THE CREATE UNKNOWN⭐️ Join us on Patreon📺 Watch this episode on YouTube❤️ Rate & Review this episode on Podchaser🎥 CREDITS:Hosts: Kevin Lieber and Matt TaborEdited by ZalgalooTheme by Mega DriveSpecial Thanks: Mo Lewit and Paula Lieber"The Create Unknown" is produced by Unknown Media💬 CONNECT WITH US:Chat with us on DiscordFollow us on TwitterFollow us on InstagramFollow us on FacebookFollow us on PodchaserView our website
We Need to Talk About Cathy... and New Guy
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.THE CREATE UNKNOWN⭐️ Join us on Patreon📺 Watch this episode on YouTube❤️ Rate & Review this episode on Podchaser🎥 CREDITS:Hosts: Kevin Lieber and Matt TaborEdited by ZalgalooTheme by Mega DriveSpecial Thanks: Mo Lewit and Paula Lieber"The Create Unknown" is produced by Unknown Media💬 CONNECT WITH US:Chat with us on DiscordFollow us on TwitterFollow us on InstagramFollow us on FacebookFollow us on PodchaserView our website
