He came up with C&H as a sick teenager and joined with amazing talent to blow it up into a massive, instantly-recognizable brand. So who *is* Kris Wilson? We hear about his life before his online career took off and where it all started, making comics as a break from animation, and exactly why Newgrounds was a lot more “free love compared to YouTube.”Then we dive into a topic that’s important for creators who want to expand: working alone versus working with a team. Maintaining a cohesive idea while dividing the workload is something that Kris has mastered, and it’s why he has a team of 24 full time artists and animators.But what’s it take to make a successful webcomic? What pitfalls do so many creators fall into along the way? Is a complex comic the best way to go, or is simple more effective? Kris also details the biggest mistake artists make when it comes to making a comic, and it’s probably a surprise.Kevin talks about the Tik Tok Effect, which is the creation of content when constrained by time and other hard limitations. We find out how this phenomenon has affected his and Matt’s perspective on making long form content on Vsauce2, and how making restrictive content leads to success in new ways. Oh -- and we also find out about Scott Kurtz’ jealousy and hatred for the Cyanide and Happiness brand.And finally we take some questions from our perpetually-supportive patrons. They want to know whether Kris has seen Netflix’s “Cuties,” the origin of the catchy “Cyanide and Happiness” name, advice for other ex-Mormons, and his philosophy on content theft.We also get some fantastic news about Kevin’s early birthday gift LIVE on the air.And as always, a massive thank you to all our patrons for directly supporting the show, and to Kris for imparting his wisdom so that we can all get a little closer to happiness (and a little further from cyanide). 🎥 CREDITS:Hosts: Kevin Lieber and Matt TaborProduced and Edited by Ben Webster  →  https://twitter.com/benwebsterTCU Theme by Mega Drive → http://megadrivemusic.com Opening Animation: KidmographCity Animation: Eric Langlay"The Create Unknown" is produced by Unknown Media.💬 CONNECT WITH US:» Chat with us on DISCORD: https://discord.gg/qAQV3Jw » Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/createunknown » Follow us on INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/thecreateunknown » Follow us on FACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/thecreateunknown » View our website: https://thecreateunknown.com Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/the-create-unknown/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands

So, it’s time to meet him for yourself.From his work on Rooster Teeth’s Inside Gaming to his own high-aesthetic videos and music, Doplex is one-stop entertainment. And after two years of waiting, he’s finally joining us on The Create Unknown.And that begs the question: why doesn’t Doplex have 1 million subs by now? So many big YouTube names have showered him with compliments, and the hype for every new Doplex release is strong. We talk about why that might be and how the process of making videos for his channel plays into it.Then we dive into his work on Rooster Teeth’s Inside Gaming and what it’s like to do what you love on someone else’s dime. Kevin gives us some sage-like wisdom on working for the sake of passion versus a paycheck, and how that relates to his experience with Vsauce2. Doplex tells us about the hardships of making a video written entirely by an AI, and how it may or may not have been an excuse to perform a Mariah Carey song for us all. He also outlines his process for making his ever-popular “Internet Oddities” series, and just how much it would cost for him to wrestle you... in bits.And retro gaming emerges as a common interest shared between all members of the panel. When exactly does a gaming system become retro? Then we discuss Doplex’s favorite game, and the subject of one of his most masterful videos: Super Mario World. This leads Matt to do a Ben Shapiro WAP-style rendition of the original Mario rap written at the end of that video.You can check out the original here, and trust me, you’ll want to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYiFDkW5ztM Doplex survives a grilling by our patrons, who ask him to invent a sponsor for this episode, and he graciously funnels us some cash to promote Doplex Scissors (patent pending). He can’t escape without giving the full background on his puppet companion Naked Man and explaining how he handled living with his former roommate Harvey Weinstein. We also learn why The Create Unknown is a better podcast than one of its stiffest competitors: The First Podcast, which Doplex will now co-host with Lars. We are at war with T1 Podcast. We have always been at war with T1 Podcast (except when we were guests on it, which was awesome).Check out Doplex’s prior appearances on T1 Podcast here:https://audioboom.com/posts/7635976-beneath-their-clothes-everyone-is-naked-with-doplexhttps://audioboom.com/posts/7664377-brevity-is-the-soul-of-mick-with-j-aubrey-and-doplex-and-ricepirateThank you to all our patrons who make this show a perpetual reality.

Glink’s socially-focused documentary mindset and Slush’s clear, deeply-researched conclusions collide to form Gush: their new podcast that takes on the pressing issues and topics in the YouTube landscape.Check out their stuff here:Gush Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChJT4Jg89AHMyybcXFeKp_A Slush: https://www.youtube.com/user/samfdigital Glink: https://www.youtube.com/user/GlinkLegend We kick off the episode by calling on Glink’s recent video about online father figures to find out who they think their “online daddies” are, as well as their online mommies. Then we get their take on the issue of censorship on YouTube, and they conclude that, “The rules have never been more ambiguous.” Is that because of the corporate structure of YouTube and Google?Then it’s a bit of Vidcon analysis. Is the convention itself really what brings creators together? If not, what is? We find that the Tik Tok child-filled convention center may not be the most useful professional locus, and we talk about Matt’s big plans for a new convention that would bring out the very best parts of Vidcon… and without all the bad parts. This leads us into a discussion about age on the internet, and if it’s even relevant any more. Oh, and Matt comes to the shocking realization that Keemstar is about halfway to drawing from Social Security. Let that sink in.Then we talk OnlyFans and the dangers that it may or may not bring. Does OnlyFans provide a healthy contribution to online life, or does it create a parasocial relationship that both sides should consider avoiding? What we do know is that we just accidentally launched a joint venture called OnlyFriends.Slush shares his experiences with an online crime of the highest order: content theft. And are reaction streamers just stealing content? Should they have to stop watching live or remove stream reuploads at the creator’s request? There’s a lot of thievery going on.We cap off the episode with some questions from our patrons who are dying to know the pair’s opinions on retro gaming and the state of the troubled Smash Bros. community. There’s a lot to unpack there -- and then The Kino Corner conspires to extend the episode by a few hours by asking about each of their favorite albums.A huge thank you to all our patrons who make the show happen, and to Slush and Glink for joining us. Check out their individual channels *and* the Gush podcast!Keep your diapers dry and your bottles full, babies.🎥 CREDITS:Hosts: Kevin Lieber and Matt TaborProduced and Edited by Ben Webster → https://twitter.com/benwebsterTCUTheme by Mega Drive → http://megadrivemusic.comOpening Animation: KidmographCity Animation: Eric Langlay"The Create Unknown" is produced by Unknown Media.💬 CONNECT WITH US:» Chat with us on DISCORD: https://discord.gg/qAQV3Jw» Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/createunknown» Follow us on INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/thecreateunknown» Follow us on FACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/thecreateunknown» View our website: https://thecreateunknown.comSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/the-create-unknown/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands
100% of Patreon funds go to making The Create Unknown, and you can get early access to episodes for just $2: https://patreon.com/thecreateunknownJoin our DISCORD to talk with artists, creators, and fans of the finer things in online life: https://discord.gg/qAQV3JwiDubbbz has re-entered The Create Unknown to talk about the past and present of YouTube -- and how he’s gone from Content Cop to YouTube’s premiere source of “Docutational Infotainment.” We start with an issue that’s overtaken the drama community: YouTube’s all-out channel takedown of Leafyishere. We ask Ian about the justification of Leafy’s removal and how it ties into the his Content Cop on Leafy also being taken down. But does it really set a “scary precedent?” And what does Leafy’s ban mean for the future of the platform?Then we talk about the subject of Ian’s latest documentary, Daxflame. Ian met Madison at a Jacksfilms’ bachelor party, and their conversation eventually led to the hour-long ‘Ice Cream Man’ documentary.Check out both of Ian’s documentaries and Dax’s newest game show episode here:Full Force: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfwPL-bd_mkIce Cream Man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYk4ymtQ1WMDaxflame’s Smoothie Madness Episode 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnjALU4Bus8Oh, and we also learn that Matt chased down Dax at Vidcon like a starstruck fan -- or creep -- just to snap a picture with him.We get slightly existential when Ian asks Matt and Kevin if they “need more in their life” as they get older. Matt had enough after trying to buy a light bulb in Tel Aviv, while Kevin expresses his love for conquering nature. Ian’s done the normal thing and evolved his content as he’s aged.Ian details why he thinks TikTok is the future of content creation and why he thinks TikTok is the “perfect loop” of consumption. Kevin weighs in with his own experience using the app and how the platform’s time limitations played into adjusting his long-form process.Our patrons ask about the fate of Content Cop and Kickstarter Crap, the status of Ian’s upcoming mobile game “Pocket Squirrels,” and about the gruesome end that awaits the remainder of his fan mail. Lastly, as is with every episode, we ask Ian what his fursona is -- and he saw it coming.Thank you to all our patrons who make The Create Unknown happen, and thanks again to Ian for coming back on!🎥 CREDITS:Hosts: Kevin Lieber and Matt TaborEdited and Produced by Ben Webster → https://twitter.com/benwebsterTCUTheme by Mega Drive → http://megadrivemusic.comMakeup: Mo Lewit → https://www.instagram.com/mo_the_makeup_madame/Photography: Paula Lieber → https://www.etsy.com/shop/Craftality"The Create Unknown" is produced by Unknown Media.💬 CONNECT WITH US:» Chat with us on DISCORD: http://discord.gg/qAQV3Jw» Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/createunknown» Follow us on INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/thecreateunknown» Follow us on FACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/thecreateunknown» View our website: https://thecreateunknown.comSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/the-create-unknown/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands
