Nick is joined by Nic from Pynk Spots for a DEEP dive into Bo Burnham’s musical comedy and what “content creators” (which is just about everyone in the age of social media!) can learn from his work. We mainly discuss his latest Netflix special ‘Inside’ but also touch on his previous specials ‘Make Happy’ and ‘What?’ – both of these are also available on Netflix.
