Behind the YouTuber(s)|Good Mythical Morning

Good Mythical Morning is an American talk-show style YouTube channel run by Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal. Rhett and Link posted the first episode of their GMM (Good Mythical Morning) on January 9, 2012, to their YouTube channel under the same name. The series’ crew only consisted of one member during season 1 but has since grown to have twenty-eight members, as a part of Mythical Entertainment. Fan reactions to their behind-the-scenes crew led to the creation of the YouTube channel “Mythical”, which focuses on the funny antics of their crew and other skits. The show focuses on Rhett and Link as they tell stories, sing songs, do challenges, and more. On November 6, 2017, Good Mythical Morning became a YouTube Original series. Shortly after, they lost this partnership and reverted to their classic format.

Good Mythical Morning is uploaded to YouTube every weekday morning, at approximately 6:00 AM Eastern Time. Each episode usually consists of Rhett and Link doing antics, playing food-related games, and answering often absurd questions. On the 12th Season of GMM, from the 53rd episode, they followed the 4-episode-per-day format, where they upload 4 GMM episodes and make them public at the same time. In the regular 15-minute episodes they made it into 30 minutes of Good Mythical Morning. They continued the 4-episode format until the end of Season 12, as when the 13th season was launched, they reduced it to 3 episodes per day. At the announcement of the 14th season, they cut off the 3-episode format and switched back to making only one episode per day, followed by their weekly Saturday morning show, Let’s Talk About That (abbreviated to LTAT) hosted by their executive producer, Stevie Wynne Levine.

LTAT is a Saturday show that airs at 6:00 Eastern Time hosted by Stevie Wynne Levine. Before LTAT, they had a few other Friday morning shows, including Ear Biscuits (which is still airing), and Good Mythical Crew, continuing.

LTAT is a discussion of main show’s episodes that week (hence the slogan, “the show about the show”). The show begins with the “beverage of the week”, where they drink an odd beverage and talk about how it tastes and then use a segue to transition to the LTAT’s main topic. At the end of every episode, Rhett and Link spin the “Wheel of Mythicality”, which can land on categories such as “6 Degrees of Bacon,” “Winface,” and “Gifticality.” The contents of the wheel often change between seasons. Finally, Good Mythical More is the after-show for Good Mythical Morning, hosted on a separate channel, where Rhett and Link relax after an episode and talk about anything.
