The Art of Failure is a series of six documentary-style videos created and released by Jamie Christensen (who runs this YouTube channel – that’s me!) throughout 2021. As a couple of years have passed since they first released and I am still really proud of these in-depth deep dives, I have decided to add a bit of new footage, re-edit several of the intros and outros to match stylistically with one another, and also update names in the credits to reflect the names those involved all go by as of 2021.
I have also made fact corrections and clarifications where needed as well. Notice in particular that I updated my name in the credits to Jamie, as I’m openly out as a trans woman now – and I can touch on this in an upcoming video if folks would like. As always, feel free to ask me questions in the comments below! Enjoy!
