Veritasium enters The Create Unknown

Play episode

Derek Muller of the science channel Veritasium joins us to talk about his new study of the YouTube algorithm and how it helped him rocket a recent video to over 30 million views in days. We dive deep into how a conversation with MrBeast got Derek to think differently about why YouTube promotes certain videos and why others get buried. What are the implications of these changes, and how does it shape the way people consume content? Is YouTube becoming more like the music industry, where creators have greatest hits rather than consistent views?

We also talk about the unique challenges of creating educational content and how to approach topics that might not be 100% original. Along the way we touch on viral tweets, pools full of gummy bears, and the properties of the element Veritasium.
