Earlier this year, we launched a podcast to sit down with some of our favorite content creators, and find out what it takes to build an audience and a career out of their passion projects.
Hosted by our very own Ariel Burstein, The Thought Leaders Podcast has featured interviews with Adam Ragusea, Rich Antoniello, EriktheElectric and The Goal Guys. However, there is one episode that really stood out this year, and that was our interview with Simon Whistler.
You might know Simon from his various YouTube channels, which include Today I Found Out, Top Tenz, and Biographies - he now has so many channels that he admits himself in the interview that he often loses count! Simon is one of our favourite general knowledge YouTubers, and there’s a huge audience out there that agrees with us: we launched the episode in May, and it has already received almost 5000 views on YouTube, and has 5 times more listens as our next most popular podcast episode!
During the interview, Ariel spoke to Simon about how he got his start with educational YouTube content, how he grew his channels, and what's coming next. He also talked about what it's like running multiple YouTube channels, why he started each of them, and what he would do differently if he were starting over today.
