HHH00 – Interview with Christopher Sharpe

My very first podcast! So new that I called it Episode Zero! I’m interviewing my husband and business partner Christopher Sharpe, producer of both my channel and Yoga with Adriene.

He’s the author of YouTube Black Book: How to Create a Channel, Build and Audience and Make Money on YouTube. He also runs a group for other YouTubers and video professionals called VidPros. Chris and I talk about how we met, how  and why we started HilahCooking, Yoga with Adriene, his cinematic style, and the best hangover breakfast in LA.

Chunking Express – great example of a “blue” movie

    I’m probably the last American of Gen X or younger who has never listened to a podcast. My 16 year old is all into his regular ones. He talks about them. Podcast this, podcast that. I wasn’t quite sure how they worked.

    But I got the email directing me here because I subscribe to Hilah Cooking, so I decided to check it out. Very much enjoyed it. It’s like talk radio. I used to love Howard Stern before he went to Sirius. Would listen to him on my commute. This reminds me of that, though not as raunchy.

    I like that I can do tasks while I’m listening. Not have to stare at the screen. And I found Hilah very interesting. Good job.

    In the Mood for Love is one of my favorite all time movies–I want to watch Chungking Express, but it’s not available for me to rent online, the movie is out of print unless I want to pay $100 for the BluRay–arghh!!! Why do movie studios make it so hard sometimes to watch a movie?!

    Love the Hilah Happy Hour. I’m now subscribed and I’ll be listening to them to all of them. Congratulations and well done Hilah and Chris.

    The 7 year anniversary video is ‘Hila’rious and I am honestly super bummed that you won’t be making any more video’s but also super stoked for your next journey. Your exceptionally talented and beautiful and never fail to make me feel very happy! All the best to you, Chris and the little one on this next Chapter of your lives. I’ll be listening to your PodCast’s for sure!

      Thank you, Marjorie! 🙂

      Ditto what Marjorie said. We are gonna miss you cooking up a storm, but since the You tube time machine lets us travel back, I think we are gonna make it.

        Thanks, Fraser! 🙂

          While I do understand why the Youtube cooking channel has ended so you can move on to bigger and better things, I will say that I miss you and your videos immensely! I wish you the very best of luck and fortune going into the future! {I am having Hilah withdrawals though, 🙁 Just sayin’. }

    I finally listened to this first podcast. I had no idea why you moved from Texas to California but I’m not surprised. The very first video I ever watched of yours was “Chick-fil-gay” and I thought “how the hell can she stand to live in Texas??” I know a lot of people think progressive should not move out of red states because they need as many “blue” votes as possible but c’mon… Texas won’t change (most red states won’t change) and I don’t blame you for wanting to get away from there. I grew up in Washington and can’t imagine ever living in a red state (though California passed prop 8 so who knows what happened there!). Hope you’re enjoying living on the BEST coast 😉

      Thank you, Melissa! <3
