Episode 17 - Me and YouTube

Episode 17 - Me and YouTube

Show Notes:

Welcome back for Episode 17!  Today, we are going to be talking about starting your own YouTube channel as I sit down with Nathan Lockhart of the LockisLive Youtube channel and Expanded Thoughts Podcast.  As I mentioned in last week’s teaser, he is literally half of my age, but has been working with YouTube for the last 7 years! He is a well of online media knowledge and a very impressive content creator. I’d say take a drink every time I mention his follower numbers, but I want you to be able to remember today and stay safe.

Next week, we will be sitting down with author N.Daniel while we talk about his new book, Burn This City to the Ground. As he describes it, an “endearing platonic love story is the gooey center of a turbulent world set aflame. Through the laughter and the tears, Samantha and Daniel play off each other like a tragic comedy duo that's hell bent on finding humor within the most savage aspects of their everyday lives.” It chronicles the continued recovery from his own mental health journey in the backdrop of living in Minneapolis during the riots, and we talk about how online roleplaying games helped him, myself, and many others begin making connections again in recovery from trauma.
