I interviewed Dan Mace — the award winning director hired by MrBeast and Casey Neistat.  The 3 time Cannes Lions award winning director left his career behind when @casey asked @DanMace to leave his career and come work for @368 — Neistat’s creator startup.  4 years later @MrBeast did the same, hiring Dan as the Chief Creative Officer for @BeastPhilanthropy. In our interview, Dan breaks down what he learned from both Casey and MrBeast, his 4-step process for viral videos, and the brand new Bru Bar.

I interviewed Jimmy Donaldson aka MrBeast about how to grow on YouTube, his creative process, and I even asked Jimmy to roast his own videos so you can learn how to improve. During this interview, Jimmy also discussed Feastables, ideas he rejected, what really happens on shoot days, his biggest arguments with his team, and how the Beast team comes up with videos that get hundreds of millions of views like Squid Game in Real Life, $1 vs $500,000 Plane Ticket, and I Spent 50 Hours Buried Alive.

I interviewed Cleo Abram about how she went from a journalist at Vox to a YouTuber with over 2 million subscribers. After 5 years as a journalist at Vox, Cleo Abram made the jump to solo-creator in 2022 with the launch of her show Huge If True and making videos with NASA, MKBHD and Boston Dynamics. The ‘optimistic tech explainers’ explore everything from NASA’s supersonic planes to Formula 1, artificial wombs, quantum computers, and electric cars.

I interviewed Dude Perfect about how they went from trick shots at Texas A&M to planning a $100M Dude Perfect World, new streaming app, toys in Walmart, and more. The group of Tyler Toney, Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones and twins Coby and Cory Cotton have come a long way. In their first interview in years, the group opens up about their biggest fights, turning down brand deals, launching their Overtime show, the new Dude Perfect Streaming app, and their most popular videos like Gym Stereotypes, All Sports Golf Battle, and Giant Nerf Trick Shots.

I interviewed Kwebbelkop (Jordi Maxim Van Den Bussche) who’s been uploading to YouTube for over a decade, earning 15M subscribers. But earlier this year, Jordi replaced himself with an AI.

I interviewed Bryce Hall, known as TikTok’s “bad boy.” But there’s much more to his story. He’s a master of social media with 33M total followers, but Hall’s had his share of controversies too. He opened up about the rise and fall of Sway Boys, his friendship with Josh Richards, and his break up with Addison Rae.

I sat down with Dream for one of his first interviews without his mask. We talked about his face reveal, how he grew to 30 million subscribers faster than MrBeast, rejecting $550,000, and whether he's risking it all by going into music.

I interviewed Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox, the co-founders of Smosh who recently bought back their historic YouTube channel after 12 years. In 2011, Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox were one of the first to sell a YouTube channel long before the likes of MrBeast started on YouTube. 12 years later, they’ve become the first to buy a channel back. We discussed Smosh’s evolution from sketch comedy to a production power house with over 35 employees, 5 channels, and 45 million combined subscribers. We also covered the duo’s 2017 split, their solo journeys as creators, and their ultimate reunion to buy back Smosh from Rhett and Link (Mythical Entertainment).

Before hitting 100,000 subscribers, Matthew Beem had taken out $60,000 in loans to fund his YouTube dreams. He customized cars for MrBeast, Logan Paul, Faze Clan, and more. But for Beem, it was never about the money. Two years later Beem's bet seems to have paid off — with 4.75 million subscribers and uploads routinely topping 2 million views. In today's interview we discuss the risks of Beem’s all-in approach, how he stood out in the challenge genre, and his top retention tips for creators.

I interviewed Jay Alto who’s worked with MrBeast, Ryan Trahan, Colin and Samir, and more. Jay is a master of thumbnails, creativity, and now has a YouTube channel of his own. In our conversation, Jay breaks down the 4 elements of a great thumbnail, how to find better ideas, and the weeks of prep-work that go into a Ryan Trahan video. Plus he roasts some of YouTube’s best and worst thumbnails, from Mark Rober to MrBeast to my interview with Logan Paul.

I interviewed Zach King about how he's gotten over 20 billion views, created over 3,000 videos, and become one of the world's most popular creators. In this interview, Zach broke down his step-by-step process for turning simple ideas into viral videos. We also covered: how Zach uses AI, how much money he's made from YouTube Shorts vs TikTok, when it makes sense to hire a team vs not, how to script your next YouTube video, and what it's like working with Terry Crews, winning money from MrBeast (aka Jimmy Donaldson) and Airrack, and we may have started beef with another YouTuber cough cough Graham Stephan ; ) Chapters: 00:00 - 00:38: Who is Zach King? 00:39 - 01:35: Presented by HubSpot 01:36 - 04:47: Zach's Creative Process: Then vs Now 04:48 - 05:46: Using Prompts to Spark Ideas 05:47 - 07:24: T-Sheet" Brainstorming 07:25 - 13:44: Example Video: Step-By-Step 13:45 - 15:52: The Extra 10% 15:53 - 18:29: Process for Long-Form Videos 18:30 - 21:21: How Zach Makes Money 21:22 - 24:04: Comparing Pay: TikTok vs YouTube 24:05 - 28:39: YouTube Strategy 2023 28:40 - 29:48: Higher Budget Videos 29:49 - 33:14: Solo Creators vs Teams 33:15 - 34:14:  Another Bite: Presented by HubSpot 34:15 - 34:50: Zach's Hiring Rules 34:51 - 37:27: What YouTubers Can Learn From Hollywood 37:38 - 39:22: The Rise of Twitter Creators? 39:23 - 42:28: Most Expensive Videos 42:29 - 46:25: Re-creating "The 9-5" for creators 46:26 - 51:21:  Future of Filmmaking Follow me on: ⁠⁠⁠⁠YouTube⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠TikTok⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠LinkedIn⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠Twitter⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠Instagram
Before there was MrBeast there was Liza Koshy. She was one of the world's fastest-growing YouTubers and Viners, growing a fanbase well beyond 25 million subscribers. Her videos have over 2.6 billion views, but then she stopped uploading. So what happened to Liza Koshy? In this interview, I asked Liza why she left when she was on top of YouTube, what it was like hosting the Met Gala, voice acting in the new Transformers movie, and how she's applying all her skills as a host, actress, and director today. Who knows, we may just see Liza on Saturday Night Live soon enough.

I interviewed Tana Mongeau who won Creator of the Year over MrBeast, Emma Chamberlain and David Dobrik at the Streamy Awards and has amassed over 5 million subscribers, an eight-figure empire, an OnlyFans agency, and products like Dizzy and Tanabis. But what's most impressive is that she's done this all after bouncing back from moments like TanaCon (her rival event to VidCon which featured Casey Neistat and Shane Dawson as speakers) and her wedding to Jake Paul. So does her comeback prove that Tana Mongeau is impossible to cancel? Watch this interview to find out.

I interviewed Terry Crews about how he broke into Hollywood, changed YouTube with his Old Spice videos, and using deepfakes and AI to make videos after he's gone.

I interviewed Danny Duncan who is one of YouTube’s wildest creators — but he’s also one of the smartest. Years before MrBeast launched Beast Burger or Feastables and Logan Paul and KSI sold out stores with Prime, Duncan was crashing Zumiez’s website and selling out Tilly’s and Spencers with his popular merch line Virginity Rocks. Danny Duncan shared untold stories about his early years (like living with Chris Chann in LA, working with Jason Lee of My Name is Earl), all the businesses he’s started (From 16 Handles to Good Sport), how he’s been able to sell $150 million of merch, and why he's not exactly just the "bad boy" people think he is. We were also joined by his manager Stefan Toler who had a lot of amazing stories to share.
