*SumitoMedia* is recognized globally as a master of the meme — but he’s also got thoughts on exactly what gamers should be able to do with wiener customization in AAA titles. And just a few minutes in, it’s easy to understand how Sumit can pull off recording videos every week by relying on his broad knowledge of internet happenings instead of writing detailed scripts.

So, how does a guy who studied electrical engineering and computer science wind up analyzing memes? It’s actually a cleaner path than it seems, aside from a period of discovery in which he realized he wasn’t going to be the next Austin Evans.

All 3 of us had a long, grinding road to what we do now, and Sumit explains the point at which he was able to flip the switch into full-time mode. A disagreement about comedian Bert Kreischer leads to one of The Create Unknown’s most serious, divisive battles in 71 episodes: The Great Cherry Pie War of 2020. Warrant’s classic might just be the song that breaks up this podcast.

Then it’s Twitch time, as we discuss the implications of Twitch’s new policy changes on speech. Is it really a big deal that “simp” and “incel” are now bannable words?

The Patron army jumps in to ask Sumit about Kid Cudi, the best and worst memes of 2020, the future of memes in 2021, and a surprisingly sensible fursona.

Thanks again to all the patrons who make every episode of this show possible, and thanks to everyone new who showed up to the live Discord recording!
