    This week on the Colin and Samir podcast we talk about what we want to do when we grow up… Obviously right now we’re making videos, working with advertisers, uploading to this podcast and just being Creators and honestly it’s really fun - but is this what we want to do forever? Colin and I are both 31 years old, I’m getting married and we’ve been uploading YouTube videos for 10 years, so what’s next?

    We explore what it means to be career YouTuber Creators and what our dream scenario looks like as we move into the future. This episode is also up on our podcast channel right now if you want to watch it, head over there like it and we do ask a question at the end of this episode that we’d love to hear your answer to so even if you listen to the episode here, head over to the podcast channel, and leave a comment there, and subscribe if you haven’t already -  the thumbnail Colin made for this one is really great, so you’re going to want to check that out.

    This week on the Colin and Samir Podcast we're joined by the multi-faceted Creator, Pierson Fode. Pierson is best known for being a twice emmy nominated actor, he's been on shows and movies across a wide variety of networks including the Disney Channel, CW, TruTv and recently booked the biggest job of his career - he's going to be starring in an action comedy movie alongside Kevin Hart and Woody Harleson called "The Man from Toronto"
    Pierson reached out to us a few weeks ago wanted to talk about YouTube - as the quarantine era began Pierson took his career into his own hands, creating content across social platforms and quickly growing a following of over 2M on TikTok, 70,000 on YouTube and almost half a million on Instagram.
    He's on the few actors in his age group to make the jump from Traditional media to digital creator and he's had so much success in doing so because he's got a pretty interesting and eclectic background. We absolutely loved chatting with pierson which is why this podcast is 2 hours long, we talk about everything from his early upbrining on a farm in washington to his big break in hollywood, dating a celebrity and dealing with papparazzi up to growing an audience on social as an actor. We did film this episode and it's up on our podcast channel right now so if you want to watch the episode you can head over there, subscribe to our new podcast channel and let us know in the comments what type of topics you want to see on the podcast and the podcast channel. Alright let's dive right in - I think you guys will really enjoy this episode of the colin and samir podcast featuring Pierson Fode.

    A $17,000 gamble on YouTube ft. Airrack

    A $17,000 gamble on YouTube ft. Airrack

    Watch the video version of this podcast: https://youtu.be/kzBU9gEHx_M

    Eric Decker aka Airrack started uploading to YouTube in January 2020. He started this year with 50 YouTube subscribers and today he has over 500,000. He’s had explosive growth this year and his mission is to get to 1M youtube subscribers - in order to get there he’s had to do some pretty crazy things including taking out a $17,000 loan to pay for one video. He’s one of the most committed creators we’ve come across and we definitely feel like he has what it takes to get to 1M subs and probably even further than that - and once you hear this episode I think you’ll agree with us on that as well. If you aren’t familiar with his videos, just type in Airrack on YouTube, I’d recommend that you watch his Couch series, that’ll give you a pretty good understanding of who he is.

    In October of 2019, we were ready to finally  call it quits...  but there were a few key  things that happened over the next few months that turned everything  around.  This week we  moved into a new studio, started hiring a team to work at our company and launched our first storytelling course. A lot is happening with Colin and Samir and we dive in to all of that on this episode of the podcast.
