This episode was a delight. I've been following David's journey since 2017 and he was one of the fellow internet weirdos I saw on a similar path that didn't quite make sense.

I believe that Kyla Scanlon is one of the most talented all-around creators. She is transcending the assumptions about what people want, especially with things like short-form videos. Her TikToks are synthesized, thoughtful, and funny, setting a new bar for what people want in an information age. We talked about her journey growing up in Kentucky, writing online, hacking into the finance industry from a non-target school, and ultimately deciding to become self-employed with less than two years of work experience.  Someone at her company told her she wouldn't "make it" Kyla's Website: Educ ..read more
