  • 924: Jared Bailey | 'Dropouts' Origin Story, What Broke Zach, & the Aftermath of Indiana's Exit

    Today, I'm thrilled to be joined by Jared Bailey ( @jarebearmusic ), the producer, and co-host of the Dropouts ( @DropoutsPodcast ) podcast.

    If you're a Dropouts fan, you'll love this episode.

    (And, if you haven't already I highly recommend checking out the Zach Justice episode as well, since Zach is another co-host of Dropouts: https://youtu.be/_gXbyIonpvw)

    The Dropouts brand has exploded since I started following them about a year and a half ago.

    They started the podcast in a spare room of a modest apartment in LA, and it has grown immensely. Now, they have over a million subscribers on YouTube, with each video racking up millions of views. Their fan base is incredibly passionate.

    If you're tuning in from the Dropouts podcast, welcome to the "Travis Makes Friends" podcast. You've probably already seen the Zach Justice interview. With Jared on today's episode, I need to get Tarayummy ( @Tarayummy ) on the show to complete the trio.

    I'm genuinely excited about Dropouts' success. They're a fantastic example of how content creators can thrive even if they start "late." They began in 2020, but their consistent, high-quality content and strong rapport have propelled them to great heights. As a fellow content creator, seeing good people achieve such success is inspiring.

    In this episode, Jared and I discuss his life, his journey, and how he reached his current position. We delve into the various milestones along the way, which I find particularly fascinating because the path to success is never linear. There are always ups and downs, and Jared's story is no exception.

  • 919: Chris Hunter | Building the Billion Dollar Four Loko Empire

    What’s it like to rise from Youngstown, Ohio to flying in private jets, then lose it all? What’s it like to be an alpha male who gets what you want, then realize you have put everything that matters to you at risk? What does it mean to know exactly who you are, then understand that you don’t know yourself at all?

    A born hustler, Chris Hunter co-created Four Loko, the world’s most infamous alcoholic beverage, and blew it up to a national sensation and a billion-dollar company in two years, only to be fired by his own partners. Until that moment, he thought he knew what it meant to be a man. He thought he understood—hell, embodied—masculinity.

    He was wrong.

    Events that would have broken other men opened a door. Chris Hunter walked through it to a new reality. A searing tale of power, grit, and unexpected reinvention – ˙his memoir, Blackout Punch is the story of a man who had it all—and wanted it all to be different.
