Creating Metaverse Experiences, Leaving a Legacy, and Bringing Tupac Back to Life, with Justin Trevor Winters @ Verified Labs
Justin Trevor Winters… yes, he goes by all three of his names which seems a little extravagant… is the Co-Founder & CEO of Verified Labs, an award-winning team of Web3 producers, artists, and architects building the biggest and most unforgettable experiences in the Metaverse. He began his career in the entertainment industry representing writers and directors including Stuart Beattie, writer and creator of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and Kathryn Bigelow, the first female director to win an Academy Award. What Justin didn’t realize is that when you’re surrounded by talent, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have talent, but he decided to pursue his own screenwriting career anyway. Lucky for him, his very first feature, Killing Winston Jones, a dark-comedy about killing yourself in order to leave a legacy, was produced and starred Richard Dreyfuss, Danny Glover and Jon Heder. He obviously peaked, and people began to think he was a much more accomplished writer than he actually was, which led to a full-time assistant professor position at Loyola Marymount, a top 10 screenwriting school mind you, and countless lectures at conferences and universities around the world. Did I mention he was nominated for an Outstanding Teacher Award? He didn’t win of course, but he’d blame that on “optics.” He currently oversees the vision and ongoing operations of Verified Labs. His goal is to create a virtual version of Universal Studios, and his five-year plan slash exit strategy includes a monumental acquisition and several Mai Tai’s on a beach in the Caribbean... or just the metaverse.

A better future for online content and streaming in a post Youtube world with Jeremy Kauffman, Founder LBRY, Odysee
Jamil talks with Jeremy Kauffman, Founder and CEO of LBRY and Odysee in a really interesting conversation about the potential for a freer and less corporate controlled environment for online content creators. Big Tech and the Securities Exchange Commission: Good Sportsmen, Unfair Censors, or Common Thugs?, with Jeremy Kauffman, Founder and CEO of LBRY and Odysee Jeremy created LBRY because he fell in love with the idea of a shared, global content network that is owned and controlled by no one. LBRY is now used by more than 20 million people each month. There's certainly people who join LBRY because of YouTube's restrictive policies, but there's lots of other reasons: On YouTube, you build a following owned by Google. On LBRY, you build a following that cannot be taken away. On YouTube, you lose 30-50% of revenue to Google. On LBRY, you lose nothing ( may take a cut eventually, but you're not trapped in the same way, since everything is open source / forkable) On YouTube, you're the product. On LBRY, you're an owner and have much more control (psychologically appealing even if you're not breaking any rules) On LBRY, funds settle in minutes with no minimums You can tell the broad appeal LBRY has from all of the creators on it, compared to what you'll see on "alts", which typically is only the content that gets in trouble.
