The Inner Tube: Answering Your Content Creation Questions!

Kevin emailed YouTube asking why he isn't advertiser-friendly anymore, and YouTube responded. We discuss what they said and give our thoughts on the whole thing.

We also talk for a bit at the beginning of the show about video games and video game journalism.

Josh shares how he turned his vacation into his vocation– literally! He's got a new job as a travel agent booking Disney World trips for clients, and on today's episode, he tells the story of how he went from zero experience as a travel agent just a year and a half ago, to now working with one of the most popular Disney World vacation planning websites on the internet.

Kevin has been hit with demonetization on his YouTube channel. So we have a long discussion about what is happening, why YouTube is doing what it's doing, and where things go from here.

This week, we spend some time discussing scripts, ad-libbing, and editing. We also talk about subscribers vs. video views, and how to have just the most incredible YouTube channel name of all time.

Do we want The Inner Tube to grow? Where do we want this show to go in the future? We got an interesting email about the current state of our podcast, and it lead to an interested conversation about what the point of our show is.

There's also some stuff about wheelbarrows (not barrels).

Also, we re-did the intro of today's show after we recorded the episode, to better reflect what the show ended up being about. So that's why the first minute of the show doesn't really make any sense.

Kevin is finally BACK! So we spend the first few minutes of the show getting caught up on everything that's gone on while we've been apart.

Then we get into a discussion about PewDiePie and his recent use of "the n-word" on a livestream. Has he finally gone TUBE far?

This week, I (Josh) have a really fun conversation with Inner Circle member Melanie Ahern. She runs my very favorite YouTube channel, and on this episode, we discuss her inconsistent release schedule and how she's still been able to build an audience around her really unique content.

We also discuss whether or not you should stick to one theme on your YouTube channel when you're starting out.

Kevin should be back next week. Thanks everyone for sticking with us for a few weeks while he has been away! And an extra special thank you to Gret Glyer, Jordan Taylor, and Melanie Ahern for helping me keep the show going in Kevin's absence.

It's been six years to the day since we uploaded the first episode of Messy Mondays onto YouTube. Today on the show, I (Josh) have a conversation with my brother Jordan about how far the show has come, and what we think about the future of Blimey Cow.

This episode contains a lot of stuff we haven't really talked about publicly outside of our Blimey Cow Patreon community, so we hope it all makes sense. Thanks so much for listening!

Creating content is hard work... staying motivated is even harder! This week on the show, we discuss some secrets we've discovered over the years that have helped us stay motivated and on track.

Kevin is out of the country this week, so Gret Glyer, founder of the company DonorSee, joins me (Josh) on the show today.

Our first ever episode recorded in front of a studio audience! This episode happened LIVE at Blimey Con 2017 in Nashville.

We talk to some Inner Circle members, as well as Josh's brother Jordan. This was an absolute blast to record, and we really hope you guys enjoy it.
