Welcome to episode 5! This podcast is all about nerding out with fellow creators on camera gear, travelling, and all that stuff we creators are obsessed with. In this podcast Eric Floberg takes over the mic. Eric is a Chicago native who has built a rather successful career in the wedding video industry. He made friends with the Mango Street crew and they have slowly been pushing him into doing more and more YouTube content. I really enjoyed this conversation with Eric. He has an outstanding level of emotional intelligence, and is a phenomenal story teller. Eric has built up a talent through years of photography work and it shows. Be sure to check out his Instagram after the show.
