Jon Barr is the host of "Here Be Barr," a travel, lifestyle, and vlogging YouTube channel showing you everything you need to know about New York City.
Jon started his career in media as a sportscaster. But after burning out and reading about another NYC vlogger, Casey Neistat, he thought he'd give the YouTube thing a try. So he started making videos on his trips to different countries. He eventually settled on the niche of the city of New York.
As of this recording, his channel has 335k subscribers. There's no other channel out there that depicts the beauty, chaos, and variety that New York City has to offer...at the level of Jon's channel.
Jon and I cover: what it’s like to be a full-time content creator with a newborn baby, how Jon went from sportscaster to YouTuber, how Casey Neistat changed the YouTube space, Jon's protocol for when homeless people approach him, what stereotypes of New Yorkers are untrue, how long it can take for a video to go viral, and much more.
