Matt Harding: Even if you don’t recognize Matt Harding’s name, you’ve probably seen one of his videos. He’s the globetrotting YouTube star behind the site WhereTheHellisMatt.com. His videos, showing him dancing with people in countries around the world, have been viewed millions upon millions of times. (Hear the full interview on the original episode: Aug. 4, 2012.)
