Aron Bender is joined by Matthias, who is not just a YouTube creator/mogul whose Hi5 Studios has channels with millions of subscribers (like DOPE or NOPE) but he and his wife have a young daughter and son, and just a few years ago Matthias was saved, a born-again Christian. We get into dad life, growing up with a Disney dad (he was an Imagineer!), the pressures of running a business that needs to scale back as it’s changing its mission, unplugging, being more present and focused on and in the moment.
