It’s our first ever Video Insiders guest episode! Carlos sits down with Ashkan Karbasfrooshan who is the founder and CEO of WatchMojo.
Ash paid a visit to Carlos in Toronto just as WatchMojo was about to hit a huge milestone, 20 million subscribers and still justifiably proudly independent which is rare in the world of online media.
Ash talks with Carlos about why he’s still bullish on YouTube. How to use fair use as a strategy, the changes in YouTube’s algorithm, article 13 and if he thinks YouTube needs to clean up its act.
On top of celebrating hitting 20 million subscribers, Ash is also launching his new ContextTV channel which covers media and entrepreneurship which are subjects that are very close to Ash’s heart.
We had lots of fun talking Ash and would love to have you back on the show. Thanks for stopping by the studio!
