    I have had the pleasure of meeting Burnie in real life and he's such a good guy! Would definitely be awesome just to kick it and enjoy some pizza and talk about RT for sure!

    The only thing I love more than listening to Burnie talk about how he's revolutionising consumerism and how proud he is of the incredible, forward thinking, community based company he's created, is remembering that that company is called Cock Bite

    Shout out to that used-to-be-Planet Fitness. 10/10 would keep the lime green/purple Nickelodeon colorway.

    So Animation and Games are moving Off-Site? That seems like it creates alot of complications for things like meetings and podcasts and having guests for reads on TheKnow and such.

      It's not likely very far away, and they'll at least be able to video call into the all-hands meeting (see last vlog).

    So.. Am I the only one that heard the weird sort of breathy sounds during his walk down the water edge and when he was talking about his airline miles? Was that part of the background music or...?

    How cool is it that Burnie just goes to a new city and has an impromptu meetup with 3 people and just shares a pizza with them? That's the coolest thing ever! Like... I can only imagine how those people must have been freaking out, especially the first person who was there alone for a while and had to try to be cool and not completely fangirl without backup. I think I would've lost my nerves about it so hard that I couldn't have gone in^^

      I guess now is a perfect time for you to adopt Twitter! I only use it to follow RT related things.

      i cant bring myself to do it. i dont like notifications. i miss out on a ton of RT stuff, but it beats using some lame app. i wish they just adopted their own app like that JUST for RT..

      You don't have to use the App, just use the browser based mode and you don't get any notifications and you can check it on your computer too. I also use it pretty much exclusively to follow RT people.

    Hi Burnie... (not that you'll actually probably read this) What are the chances you'll be heading out to the Palm Springs, CA area? If you ever make it out this way, I'll gladly be your tour guide. =)

    I think that would be one of the coolest things in the world is to sit down have pizza with Burnie! I think If I could pick like 2 people right now to set down and have dinner and chat with It would be Burnie or Phil Defranco or both

    RT absolutely deserves the growth and recognition they're now getting. I've really only been a fan since the 636 office (which feels like decades ago at the point) but I'm absolutely pumped to see what the future holds.

    In case you didn't notice or people haven't said it yet, but there seems to be a really annoying high-pitched buzzing sound. You can especially hear it when you're talking about your air miles on your phone.

    Great video! I'm really excited to see the explosive growth at RT. Nobody deserves it more than you guys do. Seeing Matt in the new animation studio and the camera pan over the old space makes me think about how far your team has come from those five minute silly videos and a handful of people 14 years ago to a company destined to be an entertainment giant. Congratulations, and I look forward to more incredible, funny, smart, amazing content every day.

    I don't know what it is about these vlogs, but they make me feel really included in this community. As someone who lives in a very rural area and has yet to really make a strong connection with any fellow RT fans, these videos make me feel really in touch with the community in a way. I don't know why exactly, maybe because of the way you speak very inclusively. 

    I look forward to every new instalment of this series.
