The Inner Tube: Answering Your Content Creation Questions!

This week on the show, we discuss Patreon! We get a lot of questions about launching crowd-funding campaigns, so we thought it'd be fun to talk about the strategies we use to cultivate and grow out Patreon communities. Plus, our friend Jeremiah (who supports both of us on Patreon!) joins the conversation.

Last week, Kevin got fired from his job at Made In Network, an online content company here in Nashville that is most well known for managing the Cinema Sins YouTube channel. In this two hour breakdown of everything that transpired, Kevin opens up about his struggles, weaknesses, inner tudes, and ultimately TRIUMPHS! I mean who needs a job, anyway?

Today we discuss the problem of preachiness in storytelling, and why we'd rather hear a well-told story we disagree with, than a poorly-told story that confirms our biases.

As a warning, we talk about a number of films in this episode and spoil some of them, including Inside Out, Ex Machina, Arrival, John Q, Up, Contagion, The Dark Knight, and probably a few others.

Before it's over, we also discuss our own experiences in storytelling– Kevin with his work on The Ceiling Fan podcast, and Josh with his work on the YouTube series Brother Brother Time.

Matt Langston of the band EleventySeven joins us today to talk about what it was like growing up in a "Christian band" (or rather, being a "Christian in a band"). We discuss how the music industry has changed in the last decade, too. This turned into a really great discussion, and we hope you all enjoy it!
