“I think I just wanted to find something that felt really authentic to me,” Olsen says of his decision to create Flight Fuel. “Coffee is part of my content, but it’s also a big part of my life. I just wanted to jump in and start working on something that felt very true and authentic to me. We are thrilled that they will feel part of the series together.”
As for advice on how artists can connect with fans on social media, Olsen says it’s important to stay natural. “They want to see your authenticity. They want to meet you.
