The Inner Tube: Answering Your Content Creation Questions!

This week, Patreon announced changes to their payment system, and a lot of people freaked out, claiming that it's just a money grab on Patreon's part.

The whole thing is pretty confusing and takes awhile to unpack, but if you're interested in what it's like to run a Patreon campaign, this will hopefully be an insightful episode. Kevin and I are still figuring it all out.

In short, we are conflicted about the messaging that Patreon is using to promote this change, but we do believe that overall it is a positive thing.

The video-streaming site Vidme is shutting down, and their goodbye message is very interesting. It basically PROVES that our unpopular opinion about everything going on with YouTube is actually right.

Kevin's sister Kt visits the show for the first time as well, so we talk about what that was like.

Kevin is heading home for Thanksgiving but that doesn't stop us from recording an episode of The Inner Tube! This week on the show, we discuss all of the Star Wars Battlefront II controversy, Kevin's latest video, and plagiarism potential-controversy!

Yep, for the first time, a new Blimey cow video has been hit with a "not suitable for most advertisers" message. NICE! So we talk about that.

We also discuss Kevin's recent trip to LA for a press junket about the film The Star. He got to meet Patricia Heaton and Zachary Levi!

Then we answer a couple of questions about maintaining your audience when you want to switch gears with your content, and also how to keep your audience excited about NEW content.

Well, it really happened. Kevin visited the set of God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness, and he has a ton of great stories about his big movie adventure. We didn't talk much about his trip off mic, so you're hearing my real reactions to everything that went on. Don't miss this episode!

This is 100% real: Kevin got invited onto the set of God's Not Dead 3! We talk all about how it happened, this week on the show!

NOTE: This may be the second time you are being notified about this episode. It's the same episode as yesterday, but some listeners said it never reached their podcatcher of choice so we went ahead and deleted the original and re-uploaded. Sorry for the confusion!

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.

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.
