Join Vassals Michal (inkasrain), Casey (blue-eyed-queen), Jock (Munrojock2), Matt (blu3arm0r), Michael (Mordion), and Thomas-ish (FTWard) as they explore a fraction of the internet’s strange, wonderful, and essentially incomprehensible video place. Topics discussed include our own YouTube proclivities, the perils of family vlogging, capitalism, beauty guru drama, and how math can make you a radical. Plus, learn to carve a turkey and start a cult in less than ten minutes.
