Views with David Dobrik
David Dobrik the good guy youtuber, the anti-Logans, the kid who constantly buy his friends a new car, and switcher of short 4:20 long youtube videos to an over an hour long, audio only media format. If you keep up with his youtube, these episodes feel like a BTS / Dvd Extras of his youtubes, especially this episode where he won a Teen Choice Award where two years before it was only a dream. Luckily you can watch his youtube version of this episode here.

I’m not surprised at all that M-Kay has a podcast, and I’m severely skeptical that this isn’t some sort of large-long term troll where he starts of seemingly sincere and at some points slips in sinister thoughts. Remember The Pizza Underground? This episode is with Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black, Russian Doll on Netflix) so if the initial intrigue fails, fall back on some good content.
It's Happening with Snooki & Joey
Uhm… this is just a funny one, tap into it for a second just so you can sink in the nostalgia of better days - when Jersey Shore was on MTV and Barack Obama was president. She basically gives her take on relevant current events…
