Best Youtuber Podcast Period!

This is hand down the most informative podcast out there to get behind the scenes access to some of the biggest youtubers. I have learned so much and thankful this resource exists. Thanks Dave!

FlyingDronesForJesus ,

Really incredible podcast!

Much effort and hard work goes into this podcast and I always seem to be stretched in some way by the end of each episode. Diligent content and questions posed to guests suggests the author certainly “does his homework” beforehand. Again, if you care anything at all about film or photography, this podcast is a must. However, the stores involved in each interview would be perfectly delightful and entertaining even if film or photography doesn’t interest.

My favorite Podcast for creators

I’ve been listening for over a year now and this is by far my favorite podcast out there! Fantastic guest lineup every single week, and Dave is a true professional as a host. I look forward to Tuesday every week to get my fix of GHP!
