Why Don't Rich YouTubers Retire?
PewDiePie and Ninja have reached the mountaintop. So have Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, and David Letterman. Yet not one of them has decided to walk away from it all to live a stress-free life… except a handful of exceptions like Nicki Minaj and Rick Moranis. Why?⭐️ Click here to unlock the full 2 hour ad-free episodeIn this episode, we talk about what drives creators to continue doing what they do even when they're financially set for life and have a long list of accomplishments? We also talk about whether the guys will one day give up on YouTube and find new creative outlets, and why so many creative people never really stop (hint: they can’t).Along the way we dive into the inherent cognitive discontent that leads them to either keep making stuff or to burn out entirely... and we learn a new word to describe a distinct pressure in the lives of creatives: "anomie." We also talk about the stunning transformations of Filthy Frank and Rick Moranis and how their unique cases reflect just how difficult it is to be an entertainer.We develop contingency plans for when Michael and Jake try to murder you, Kevin hides his secret posters, and Matt has pee-pee poo-poo time.

William Osman enters The Create Unknown
The brilliant, singularly-talented William Osman takes a unique approach to creating content: truly, there’s only one egg-dropping madman on YouTube.⭐️ Click here to unlock the full 1 hour 35 minute ad-free episodeIn this episode, William Osman tells us about making fairly pedestrian laser-cutting videos with the goal of landing a job… and how a laser cut bust of Vin Diesel made out of ham and cheese kickstarted his popularity. We also learn about what it's like to live with fellow YouTuber Michael Reeves and how it inspired William to create a carpet that delivered an electric shock when his roommate walked too loudly.Oh, and we talk about why it might’ve been a mistake to start with the strongest electric fencer at the store, and what it’s actually like to be electrocuted. Over and over.Along the way, we dive into William's obsession with why McDonald's ice cream machines are always broken, including his theory surrounding their maintenance -- AND his long-term plan to get a job at McDonald’s to know for sure. We also dig into the massive amount of work it takes to run a channel, and more specifically what it takes to create merch that doesn't suck.While William’s goal is to educate and entertain, he’s a master craftsman of consistent narratives that keep viewers interested even when a topic can be a bit dense. William’s storytelling dynamic his trademark whimsical, fly by the seat of your pants style has created some of the most engaging content on YouTube… and our full conversation reveals what it really takes for him to keep creating sustainably (hint: it involves having a Caretaker and pushing back against some family criticism).Join our Patreon to unlock the extended episode, which includes additional, more personal content, including:William's expert relationship adviceMatt's run-in with Thai foodThe grim fate of the ham and cheese Vin DieselWilliam's advice for overcoming family pressure to "get a real job"How William quantifies successMaking a living on YouTube🚀 Check out William Osman on YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.Videos mentioned in this episodeLaser Cut Vin Diesel Ham and Cheese SandwichTraining My Roomate to Walk QuietlyScream Powered MicrowaveTHE CREATE UNKNOWN⭐️ Unlock the full ad-free episode on Patreon📺 Watch this episode on YouTube❤️ Rate & Review this episode on Podchaser🎥 CREDITS:Hosts: Kevin Lieber and Matt TaborExecutive Producer: Dave KeineEditor: Adam GanongTheme 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
Is This The Worst Advice Ever?
There's a meme going around that seemingly everyone is hailing as fantastic advice: "Don't take criticism from people you wouldn't go to for advice." Categorically, this is dumb. Subjectively this is dangerously stupid. Kevin and Matt talk about why you should be open criticism and how seeking different opinions allows you to grow as a creator and as a person.⭐️ Click here to unlock the full 1 hour 45 minute ad-free episodeIn this episode, we also dive into how perfectionism isn't possible as a creator because problems constantly arise, includinng an all-night rotoscoping session to hide Kevin's cowlick while he drinks toilet water.Meanwhile, CAN WE SAVE KEVIN'S EYES?!?!

 We Got Bludgeoned by YouTube's Hammer
In the wake of Vox Adpocalypse and the fallout from Carlos Maza and Stephen Crowder's feud, YouTube has rolled out more changes to its automated content regulation and countless channels have been swept up in the mess -- including Vsauce2. In this episode, we talk about how the brute force, computer-driven system is increasingly causing problems for creators who put out objectively inoffensive content.⭐️ Click here to unlock the full 1 hour 40 minute ad-free episodeWe also talk about how YouTube is now deliberately passing over quality content as seen in the algorithm's throttling of Coffee Break's recent examination of public policy on vaping, and YouTube's strange pre-crime stance on channels that use text-to-speech audio.

Kingani enters The Create Unknown
The intensely fun and funny Kingani joins us to talk about how the next generation of creators see the online and offline worlds. Ani is a hugely popular comedy YouTuber who rose to fame through the Discord community and now is an integral part of the "Reddit Crew" (or whatever you want to call them). It’s an entirely new realm for "boomers" like Kevin and Matt, so Ani provides on-the-ground insights into how the community sees hot button issues like YouTube drama, the Social Blade controversy, and the Two YouTube's Theory. As the role of creator evolves beyond carefully-scripted videos and just racking up views, what are the implications for maintaining private and public personas as communities take on a life of their own? Is it possible to connect with fans while maintaining a healthy private, personal life? Kingani lends her spectacularly illuminating point of view as she evolves along with WildSpartanz, Quackity, Kwite, Bluesdank, and the rest of the Reddit Crew. I think we boomers are finally starting to figure out what these young rapscallions are all about!

Veritasium enters The Create Unknown
Derek Muller of the science channel Veritasium joins us to talk about his new study of the YouTube algorithm and how it helped him rocket a recent video to over 30 million views in days. We dive deep into how a conversation with MrBeast got Derek to think differently about why YouTube promotes certain videos and why others get buried. What are the implications of these changes, and how does it shape the way people consume content? Is YouTube becoming more like the music industry, where creators have greatest hits rather than consistent views? We also talk about the unique challenges of creating educational content and how to approach topics that might not be 100% original. Along the way we touch on viral tweets, pools full of gummy bears, and the properties of the element Veritasium.

Carson enters The Create Unknown
We’ve dubbed CallMeCarson the “DaVinci of Dumb,” and he’s earned that title. Carson is leading a new genre of comedy in which sophisticated, multi-faceted humor is reduced to what can only be described as perfectly dumb content. We unpack where that humor comes from and how it’s formed as we reveal just how smart Carson has to be to act so dumb. A lifetime of total saturation in all things YouTube has turned Carson into a quick, sharp humorist with a knack for building thriving communities of fans -- including a Discord with nearly 200,000 members. From cursed images to Discord pranks, Carson pulls back the curtain on his behind-the-scenes preparation that allows him and his friends to create seemingly effortless content that makes millions of fans happy. We also explore Carson’s ambition to jump into fashion and the surprisingly awful story behind the origin of Santa Claus. Check out Carson on YouTube, Twitter, and his podcast Goopcast. ⠀ ⎼⎼⎼⎼⎼⎼⎼⎼⎼⎼ ⠀ WATCH US ON YOUTUBE Watch full live-action episodes at youtube.com/thecreateunknown Check out clips and bonus videos on our at youtube.com/TCUhighlights ⠀ JOIN OUR DISCORD Chat with us on The Create Unknown Discord!

Casey Neistat enters The Create Unknown
YouTube legend Casey Neistat enters The Create Unknown to talk about the current state of the platform and how its “Golden Age” may be long gone. Casey understands that YouTube as a media platform has to work for fans, creators, and advertisers -- and he gets that delicate, constantly-shifting balance better than anyone -- the question is, are YouTube's latest changes saving the site or destroying it? We also dive into the expectations of YouTube audiences and how tapping your community’s knowledge can help drive flexible, evolving content. We talk about his reaction to his Logan Paul interview, de-platforming, and the origin of Casey’s hatred for open-mouth hamburger consumption.

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.

How to Make YouTube Sausage
Kevin and Matt go deep into the process behind making a Vsauce2 video to show how the YouTube sausage gets made… and it’s a lot more complex than you may think. We want to open viewers’ eyes to the many steps of the creative process that results in the content they love, and help creators themselves navigate the daunting, sisyphean journey of making videos. We plunge into the creative process by discussing how to generate an idea and how to narrow down the right topic for a video. Then we get into the action steps, which include researching and writing a script that’s both tight, accurate and interesting. Along the way, we enter Kevin's headspace as he deals with the emotional side of creators putting themselves out there for the audience to love… or criticize. One person can rarely do it all on their own, so most ideas flourish with some additional input. Throw in the natural back and forth of working efficiently in a creative team and we start to see how complex the YouTube creative process really is -- and we’re just scratching the surface. Oh, and there’s editing, technology and gear, participating in the community, VFX, music, audience trends, upload consistency, keeping up with related content, and about a hundred other critical elements to developing that initial idea into a piece of content that your audience actually likes. So, there’s a lot to talk about. Announcement: Season 2 is coming soon with full-featured guest episodes that span a range of massively popular creators. Kevin gives one weirdly cryptic hint about what to expect and what to get excited for. It’s gonna be huge!

The Two YouTubes Theory
The most disliked video in the history of YouTube was made… by YouTube. And the most liked video? That’s PewDiePie’s response to it. So, what’s going on here, and what does it mean for the future of YouTube? In the wake of the disastrous 2018 YouTube Rewind, we dive into whether YouTube can achieve its corporate goals without alienating the robust communities of viewers and creators that built the platform in the first place.

Kwebbelkop enters The Create Unknown
Kwebbelkop’s high-energy gaming videos showcase his excitement and hilarity -- but underneath lies one of the most insightful entrepreneurial minds in the creator industry. We start with his decision to go full-time right out of high school as he proved to his mom that YouTube could actually be a career. From there, Jordi gives a masterclass in the process of building a sustainable, consistent business with tremendous potential for growth. We dive into how a book about McDonald’s steered Kwebbelkop toward creating an efficient manufacturing line for his videos that allowed him to maintain the ultimate quality control. That leads to the state of the modern content treadmill and how creators go about choosing projects that keep them energized, fresh, and sane. Kwebbelkop shares how he maintains his quality of life in a world that barely allows him to take a day off. Jordi also details the excitement around Webbel Games, his latest venture that’s vaulted him from gamer to game maker -- and how Havocado reflects his expert knowledge of what makes a game not only fun to play, but fun to watch on YouTube. We touch on his relationship with his YouTube creator girlfriend Azzy, the nuances of playing the ‘character’ of Kwebbelkop, and the charming story of exactly how Dutch New Amsterdam became modern New York City. Check out Kwebbelkop on YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram. Follow his gaming company, Webble Games, and the debut of his upcoming game Havocado.

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. Season One guests include Destin Sandlin (Smarter Every Day), Dolan Dark, Grandayy, iJustine, Jake Roper, Michael Stevens, and more. 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 every other Thursday. THE CREATE UNKNOWN Hosted by Kevin Lieber and Matt Tabor Executive Producer – Dave Keine Theme by Mega Drive Host and guest portraits by Tim Webster Edited by Adam Ganong "The Create Unknown" is a Vsauce2 production in association with Triangle Content.
