  • "Should I quit band in order to do video?": We help listener Jacob try to figure out if he should bail on a commitment he's getting bored with, in order to pursue his passion for video!
  • "How do you guys balance work, health, life, etc?": We got an interesting email asking us how we balance all of the different things we work on. Certainly a lot has changed for both Kevin and I over the last year, so we discuss what life right now looks like for each of us.

Kevin is out this week, so I (Josh) bring in Inner-Circle Member Adler Davidson to co-host the show! Adler is a very funny YouTube comedian/personality who you should know about if you don't already.

Adler has become a good friend of the show, a great friend in real life, so it was fun to have him on the show finally for an hour-long discussion about a bunch of interesting topics.

We discuss how Adler handles running a YouTube channel while he's in college, how to write jokes, and more! Hope you all enjoy.

We took a month off, and this episode explains why.

We weren't sure if we were going to talk about it on The Inner Tube, but we decided it was only fair, since this show is all about documenting the highs (AND the lows) of content creation.

BUT BEFORE we get into all of that, we talk about the eDgY return of Underoath (they swear now– super eDgY!)

And Kevin also shares his experience at the red carpet premier of the film I Can Only Imagine. He ended up having a two hour discussion with Alex Kendrick (Courageous, Fireproof, War Room, etc.) I know– can you believe it?!

This is maybe our favorite episode we've ever recorded. Hope you all enjoy it!
