Ali Spagnola Makes Music On YouTube
Ali Spagnola made her first mark with her Power Hour drinking game/album or 60 1-minute songs, but for the past several years she's been focusing on making her mark on YouTube. She finally hit paydirt eight months ago when she recorded a style mash-up of Billie Eilish and Meghan Trainor. It was meant to be her final YouTube video, but when it got millions of views Ali decided to follow the trend. We discuss all the work she put in before her video hit big, and why she can't leave the fur room she called us from.

Brian Brushwood Makes You The Most Interesting Person In The Room
Brian Brushwood is best known for his YouTube shows Scam School and The Modern Rogue, but it all started with a dream to get his own TV show. In this interview, Brian outlines the steps he took to eventually land his own cable series (NatGeo's 'Hacking The System'), and how, when the dream went away, he leveraged his experience to self-start a fresh YouTube brand, web store, and blog that Brian controls himself, no cable network required. He also shares his unified theory of being an independent creator and how you can start from nothing and get to something. It's a magical discussion.
