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.

Survival multiplayer series
- Main article: SMPLive
In March 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.
- Main article: Lunch Club
In the video titled “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.”
During September 18 to October 19, 2016, the username associated with Carson's Minecraft account was "I_LYNCH_BLACKS". It was later explained that "It was at a time of really offensive jokes and such and wanted to get a quick laugh and such out of it."
Many people were supposedly banned from Carson's public Discord server for reporting racist claims made by other members. Additionally, Carson and his moderation team refused to ban members who shared the racist comments, stating there were a lot of requests and people shouldn't take time of their day to handle them.
However, it is worth noting that Carson presumably had little-to-no say regarding his server's moderation, instead all the fault being at the server's moderation team.
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 also came out on Twitter apologizing to Carson as well, which received a positive response from the fans. Katerino 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.
On January 4, 2021, after the sexting controversy erupted, it was confirmed by Anything4views that Carson and Kate were never in a relationship.  The information came from Fitz in a private conversation with Chad, in which Fitz came up to Carson with the idea of Carson "borrowing" Kate for a few videos. This new information has been met with a mixed response, with some people saying that the might have been too harsh on Kate, and re-subscribing to her, while others still point out that she still cheated on other men.
As of June 2021, it is still unclear whether Carson had evil intent, or if he was attempting to expose Katerino's cheating behavior from the beginning.
Sexting & misconduct
On January 4, 2021, Hugbox and Traves (members from the now defunct Lunch Club) were interviewed by Keemstar, in which they announced that Carson sexted a girl who was underage in early 2019. Hugbox explained that Carson had confessed this towards all Lunch Club members, and was the reason the group dissolved. On January 5, a Twitter user known as miniborb, came forth explaining that she had been groomed by Carson. She was 17 at the time, and Carson was 19. The next day on January 5, other former Lunch Club members Slimecicle, cscoop and Jschlatt released statements regarding the situation, all three showing dissatisfaction with the situation. Ted Nivison released his statement the following day. In addition to Lunch Club, many other YouTubers who worked with him previously took action, such as Jaiden Animations, who unlisted the videos she had created alongside Carson, some of which having as many as 17 million views. As the (at the time) alleged victim of Carson's acts, on January 5, a YouTuber named JOKO released conversations between Carson and other acquaintances of his that confirmed that Carson, back in early 2019, exchanged nude photos with the aforementioned miniborb. Later on January 9, Keemstar released another video on the situation this time mentioning another accuser, stating that at the time of their photo exchanges she was 17 and Carson was 20 in middle 2019.
The reason as to why it took so long to be revealed was due to fears of lawsuits and more controversy on Lunch Club's end. In response to the allegations, Carson deleted his Discord server and shut down his Subreddit. Many YouTubers, fans and ex-fans, although condemning Carson for what he did, have expressed the real issue as being the unstable power dynamic between Carson and miniborb rather than the age gap between him and her.
The cheating allegations have been confirmed by ex-Lunch Club members and Carson himself. As of January 31, 2021, the Subreddit was re-opened again, though without the ability to post new content, but months later the subreddit shut down & re-opened again.
Slimecicle immediately distanced himself from Carson after he realized that what Carson did could be seen as highly illegal, he also reported it to the Authorities and completely left Lunch Club.
Jschlatt released a video in which he had more of a neutral response where he encourages Carson to get mental help, and to not excuse himself from the situation. Many have respected Jschlatt for not being so cruel and being respectful about the whole scandal.
Ted Nivison expressed how it's extremely hard to remove Carson from his life, especially after he helped him build his channel, he said that he heavily regretted including Carson in his videos, he deleted the video where he was reading national park reviews with Carson & Schlatt out of respect for the victims.
Joko said on his Twitter that Carson's "predatory" behavior was disgusting and encouraged others not to defend him. He also released a video proving that Carson's Discord messages were real. He further elaborated the next day on his Twitch saying that while it's not pedophilia, he still thinks Carson used his fame to manipulate his fans.
Cscoop said he didn't feel well enough mentally at the time to be interviewed with Noah and Traves, he cut ties with Carson shortly after the interview. Jaiden Animations would go on to unlist her video "I tried to beat Minecraft With CallMeCarson". Jawsh and Altrive simply said on their Twitter that Carson's behavior was unacceptable.
penguinz0 said on Twitter and Twitch that Carson's behavior wasn't pedophilia or grooming, but he didn't defend nor lambast Carson. Twomad said that Carson did nothing wrong and he was the victim since everyone was attacking him after the allegations came out. He mostly attacked his friends for abandoning him.
SCP Podcast/The Narrator allegations
In light of the sexting allegations against Carson, YouTube user 'The Narrator' a former friend of Carson and former host and creator of the now-defunct Solitary Confinement Podcast (co-hosted by RaccoonEggs as well as Carson) published a video on January 7, 2021 titled 'My Experience With CallMeCarson.'
In this video, Narrator goes into detail about how Carson constantly agitated him while he was suffering from manic episodes (due to Narrator having Asperger's as well as BPD) during Vidcon 2018, constantly prodding him and making fun of him during these episodes. This incident, along with other similar incidents, caused the two to disassociate with each other, leading to the end of the Solitary Confinement Podcast. While disputing how to announce the end of the podcast, Carson went behind the backs of both Narrator and Raccooneggs, hijacking the Solitary Confinement Podcast Twitter account (created and owned by Narrator) and posting an announcement video that was shortly taken down after ten minutes. Before Carson posted the video and hijacked the account, he sought the consultation of fellow YouTubers and friends Altrive and Jawsh, where conversations and DMs provided by Narrator details how Carson outright admitted to wanting to 'sabotage' Narrator and how he wants to proceed with the announcement video, which both Jawsh and Altrive object to.
Narrator alleges that Carson wanted to ruin his life, as he would have sent his rapidly-growing audience of hundreds of thousands to his outlets to end his content creation career, as they would be under the guise that Narrator was a terrible person. In the short-lived announcement video, Carson announces plans to create a new Podcast called the 'Unzipped Podcast' with Raccooneggs and admits to his audience that he believes that Narrator is a terrible person, but they should still 'go follow him and cheer on his endeavors.' Narrator ends the video by confessing that he held off accusing Carson in part of fear of being called a liar, but finally built up confidence to tell his story due to the sexting allegations now confronting Carson.
Steam Library/Pregnancy playtime
In January 2021, amidst the sexting allegations, people noted that Carson's Steam library contained a game known as Pregnancy, a game about a 14-year old girl who gets raped and becomes pregnant. The game only takes ~40 minutes to complete, however Steam notes that Carson had played it for over a hundred hours. While some noted it may just be a joke, comparable to how jschlatt has several hours on a Steam hentai game, many have shown concern on why Carson would choose that game in particular. However, this very likely could have just been due to leaving the game open or being idle.
Rumors have spread that one of Carson's editors, Krinios said in a now-deleted tweet that he had been in contact with Carson. He said that Carson was living with family members and he also promised that an apology video would be coming, however it has been months since it has happened. Krinios had also said that Carson was afraid of going back to college and getting a job.
On April 4, 2021, Ludwig was streaming an old Jeopardy video featuring Carson. He eventually got a text from Carson to stop playing the video, which Ludwig confirmed it was him. This debunked any theories that Carson left the internet or died. Weeks later on April 24, 2021, Carson added an Instagram story of him filming his cat playing toys. He deleted it 5 minutes later but one of his fans reuploaded it. People think Carson may had accidentally uploaded the story or it was showing that Carson might be slowly recovering.
In May 9, 2021, ConnorEatsPants stated on his Twitch stream that he's been in a little contact with Carson and that he's looking for therapist to get the help. On May 17, Carson accidentally posted a tweet replying to a political debate but he would go on to delete it. A minute later he posted another tweet saying "accidental tweet, carry on 🤓", but then he deleted it again. People thought he might have been hacked on Twitter but hasn't been confirmed yet if he was hacked or if it was Carson.
A month later on June 19, Carson made another tweet saying to give him a bit more time to reevaluate. Though the post has spawned quite the mixed reception, it's speculated that he'll indeed address the allegations down the line.
