Previous YouTube channels
Carson made his first video in 2011 under the username bluecreepers1 with the video Minecraft Multiplayer Adventures-Episode 1:Awesome. With 26 videos, Carson, as well as some friends he had at the time, ran this channel, with the last video being posted on November 25, 2011.
On November 29, 2011, Carson uploaded his first video to the channel GamerCraft157, to replace the old channel previously mentioned. With 69 videos, the videos included games such as Minecraft, Terraria, Happy Wheels, Skyrim, and Portal. The last video uploaded on the channel was on May 7, 2012.
On July 8, 2012 (which was after the channel CallMeCarson was made), the first video uploaded to the channel "iceboxSP" (Currently known as icebox carson) was the start of Carson's new singleplayer series. This channel made 40 videos, with the last one on March 16, 2013. From this point onward, all current videos by Carson would be made on his main channel, TheBlueCrewPros.
On his main channel, he mainly uploads videos with his friends reviewing images, videos, or games with commentary while using the voice chat software known as Discord.
His second channel (CallMeCarsonLIVE) consists of uploads of him and his friends playing a variety of games, for example, Minecraft, Roblox, UNO, Portal, Gang Beasts, Human: Fall Flat and many more.
Survival Multiplayer Series
In March of 2019, Carson and many other streamers started a season of a Minecraft Survival Multiplayer Series, entitled SMP Live, on his twitch channel. Players would be required to livestream at all times while playing. The server also had a hit system, where viewers could donate to have a streamer either kill or prank any other player of their choice. Many streamers like twomad, cscoop, and AntVenom played in this series. Some clips of the streams were uploaded to his second channel, CallMeCarsonLIVE. A finale on the server was held on December 31st, 2019, and it ran into January 1st, 2020. After midnight had struck, the server whitelist was disabled and the server IP was publicly released. Soon after, the server was closed. Carson had alluded to a Season 2 of SMP Live, but no announcement has been made.

In the video “Weird YouTube Channels“, Carson announced that he started a podcast called the UNZIPPED Podcast where "four people under the age of 20 talking about topics you don't really care about." The "Goop Squad" uploaded four videos before renaming the podcast, "Goopcast", unlisting their four previous podcasts and adding five new episodes. Under this name, they are also on Soundcloud. Due to trademark issues with the name “Goopcast,” it was later renamed to “Fart Club” temporarily and then officially renamed to “Lunch Club.”
On March 12, 2020, Carson announced on Twitter that he was taking an indefinite break to improve his mental health. On April 1, 2020, Carson responded to a comment in his own Reddit confirming that his girlfriend Kate, known as Katerino online, had cheated on him for Fitz, one of his good friends. He also stated that while this wasn’t the initial reason he took the break, they both knew about his mental health when this event occurred. Later on, more boyfriends were revealed. They were her manager, a small League of Legends streamer, and a couple more unidentified people from clips. This sparked discussion on Twitter, as many content creators and friends of Carson would join the discussion and share their opinion about this controversy. They are mainly divided into two camps: one of which blames Fitz is equally as guilty as Kate; the other camp sympathizes Fitz and claims that Kate is the only one to blame in this event.
Carson apologized to Fitz and Katerino for jeopardizing their career on April 15. Cameron has also come out on Twitter apologizing to Carson as well, which received a positive response from the fans. Katerino has released a video titled "an update" in which she explains how she "wasn't in a relationship with Carson" and how "she is going through a hard time and is seeing a therapist". However, this apology was not as well-received among the community.
After the drama, Carson started being active on Twitter again and played 8Ball on the iPhone against many popular figures. Carson also made jokes on his Twitter about him getting cheated on.
On April 24, 2020, he returned to YouTube, releasing the long-awaited "Best of CallMeCarson" 2020 edition. He jokingly states at the start of the video that he'd hoped "nothing bad had happened during his absence" most likely referencing the Katerino and Fitz drama.
Then, on April 26, Carson made his official return to Twitch and YouTube with the video "I guess I'm back" on his CallMeCarsonLive channel. In the video, Carson talks about how excited he was to return to making content and stated that he wouldn't be talking about or referring to the Katerino drama much in the future.
