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.

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!

This week on the show, it's the most wonderful time of the year! The Last Jedi is here, and we have our full review of the second act of the new Star Wars trilogy.

UPDATE: Since we recorded this episode, Patreon has rolled back the changes to transaction fees. The full announcement can be found here.

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.

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.

This week, Josh does the show solo and offers some encouragement regarding building an audience. Sure, it's important. But it's not nearly as important as finding your voice.

SPOILER WARNING! Yep, Rogue One was a lot of fun, but there are lots of storytelling lessons to take away from it, too. We discuss why the third act worked so well, and also talk about some ways that we believe the film's first act could have been improved.
