Scuba Diving with Brian Weitz of Animal Collective

We went to the National Aquarium in Baltimore with Brian Weitz of Animal Collective. The aquarium has a very awesome guest program that allows patrons to scuba dive in the tanks with the animals.

After the National Aquarium ran the story on their blog, Pitchfork picked up the video and ran it helping to push total views close to 6000 views to date. And finally, we got some love from BYT rounding out the coverage.

Interviewing Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky

A while back, Jeff Jetton and I traveled up to MIT to pay a visit to Noam Chomsky for a BYT piece we were working on. The resulting post garnered 45 comments on BYT, but many more to this day continue to trickle in on my YouTube channel which has received 32000+ views as a result of the interviews being published.

Chomsky himself remains a polarizing figure, almost all the comments seem to be divided in terms of people who either hate him, or people who love him. While people's opinions of the man may be controversial, his ability to goose conversation and drive traffic remains reliable.
