60. Drew Morisey on BLM, Finding the Center, and Crushing YouTube

Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Overcast, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, or on your favorite podcast platform.

I first met Drew Morisey through Clubhouse. We found ourselves talking politics I immediately noticed and respected how balanced and nuanced his views were. Since then I’ve really enjoyed connecting with Drew and believe he has some very valuable insights to share, so I’m excited to share this episode with you.

Drew Morisey is a viral content creator. His first company set out to innovate a new niche on YouTube (rap education) and succeeded. His second major venture introduced entertainment to the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. He is currently spearheading a social media/video team whose credits include Vice News, Kendrick Lamar, Black Eyed Peas, and many more.

‘Limiting the speech of people and censoring from social platforms will only rouse a friction in the system.’

‘Once you are no longer accredited by the public for your uniqueness, you’ll begin to get left out.’

‘Sometimes, the person leading a movement attaches a policy to it and coerces the followers to align to the policy or leave. And that’s just impractical.’

‘When you want to start a YouTube channel, it doesn’t matter the number of competitors in your niche, you just need to look for something that’ll make you stand out from competitors’
