  • Hey everybody! Ryan here. I am beyond proud to present our new limited series, “Making Watcher.” It’s an honest look at 3 dummies making their own company, and to be completely transparent, there was some stuff in here that I was hesitant to share, cause it’s kind of vulnerable. This series was definitely a passion project for me, I put a lot into this one, and I hope you enjoy it. This series will be infrequently released (as this is an actual journal of our progress as a company). Also, in the spirit of transparency, the reason the rest of this series will be released exclusively on Patreon is due to the trials of starting an actual sustainable business, and that will become apparent when you watch! Anyways, enough gabbing from me, please enjoy the first episode of Making Watcher.

  • So I'm fairly new here - Couple of days ago I started binging (covid-lock down) the Buzzfeed Unsolved Network - with Ryan and Shane. I've been laughing, a LOT. Show after show, I became more invested because of the humor, and then you two became sort of endearing to me. Blah blah blah...All of the sudden I'm seeing different hosts, and they're not filling the hole. My fix was not being met. Thank Krishna for USworlds suggesting this channel. Popped up, and now I have a buttload of more content to consume. You almost have a million subs on this account! Kudos!

  • I really like watching the three of you separately and together so. Wow, though what a year to decide to go into business. Yet, kind of a good year to do that as well. lol. i discovered you guys on Hulu and then came to USworlds and found more. I wish you well, not that you'll ever read this since it was from January!

  • I think you guys are too hard on yourselves. How would it not have worked out? I'm just trying to understand Ryan's fears. How would it be possible for you guys not to be successful?? I think once you reach a level of success there is no way to fail. Especially when we're talking about your personalities, it doesn't even make any sense to consider not succeeding. I mean it's nice that Ryan is still human and has doubts but come on, you're all basically irreplaceable at this point.
