How To Not Fail At YouTube, With Akilah Hughes 

Comedian and YouTuber Akilah Hughes joined the conversation on “How to Fail” at our recent live podcast recording for The Upgrade.

While the high volume of dormant YouTube channels are ample proof that the site can be an ecosystem ripe for failure, Hughes offers her own thoughts on what it takes to get “good” at the platform.

Is anyone “good” at YouTube, though? Well that’s up for her to decide, because, as Hughes points out, that’s like someone being “good” at Facebook. And also, comedian Chris Gethard tells a story about being social media stalked at the gym.
