  • “The old model is you want to drive people to TV so that your sponsors get seen. We’re internet guys; that’s not the model. The model is get your shit seen. Don’t care if you watch a promo that lasts a minute… We just want you to see our content.” – [02:06] Ali Hussainy
  • “Nobody wanted us to make it in this business because we were saying bad words and letting fishermen act like fishermen. I think prior to social media, our business, everybody really thought it was grandpa and little Bobby going down to the lake, holding hands.” – [27:49] Ali Hussainy
  • “Sometimes working harder isn’t smarter. When that ship was sinking. I was in there seven days a week, 16 hours a day… I should’ve worked smarter and should have really taken a step back.” – [16:40] Ali Hussainy
