31: The Every Day Dad YouTube channel caught my eye several months ago, probably because Gary talks a lot about cameras and camera related topics, and his content overlaps mine a little bit. I asked Gary to join me for a conversation specifically because I wanted to pick his brain about how he grew his channel so quickly over the course of about a year, and if he had any tips for video pursuit podcast listeners who struggle with staying consistent with content creation when you have a full time job and a family.
