    When Anthony began trying to explain the difference of a """shallow"""" content from an authentic one
    I immediately thought of Jenna marbles(authentic) answering "Is Privilege a crime" question
    And all the other ppl(shallow) around the table was dead silent after.
    Until they pointed someone else to answer the question and they were like "Oh dang that was already a good answer I dont want to answer that"
    Ya know?

    What I don’t understand is why would you let someone buy your company and make you a salaried employee??!!! That is classic usurp right there. Anthony basically let someone usurp his power and made him a slave. Very stupid.

    Awww Anthony likes Kurzgesagt! There's so many great German knowledge channels out there that don't get enough love (mostly because they're in German hehe). Really interesting interview! It's always so refreshing to see the vulnerability in internet personalities. Other than Ryan, I don't even watch "TVcliprs" anymore because so much of it is now shallow and scary and too loud, too bright and makes me question humanity

    I also feel like that is why Smosh didn't grew bigger and Pewdiepie got the number one spot, is because Smosh didn't GROW. The content is the same as when they started and when they make other content like Gaming or Vlogs, they published it in another Sub Channel like SmoshGames. Honestly I feel like, if Smosh "grew up" as their Audience grew, I would probably still be watching Smosh right now.

    At 55:00 I just got a phone and before I felt super left out and now that I have one I noticed I don't get a lot of the bad habits like lack of interest or stuck on social media that people want about, but IDK that's just me.

    It’s (to some extent) smosh‘s and Nigahiga’s fault that I speak English as good as I do nowadays, because when I was younger I discovered a German channel that dubbed smosh and nigahiga and I found it super funny, and some day it just stopped doing it, and because I wanted to continue watching them I started watching them in English, not understanding anything but then I gradually started picking up stuff and that’s how I learned English before I had it in school.

    the fact that defy forced Anthony to leave smosh, his very own creation is just so saddening. He had to leave all the subscribers he had earned and start fresh just because he made a stupid decision as a 23 year old. That is fucked up.

    Fantastic podcast. I really have an extreme, upmost respect for Anthony now. I already had a lot of respect for him during Smosh, but listening to him talk so openly and maintaining his humbleness + open-mindness is amazing. Especially talking about his mental health. I wish more people could be like that.

    Damn, now that I think about it the OG Yotubers are mostly gone or have sunk in fame or something. The ones left are or is left is Pewdiepie as far as I can tell. It's kinda sad as they all used to be my daily routine. It was like Pokémon, Beyblade, etc where I would watch all their episodes each day.
