I have had a chance to talk to me team, I myself am the admin / editor / music mixer for our channel. We are just a teeny tiny podcast group hosted on Podbean, and have for awhile been planning to extend ourselves out to the YT format. The adpocalypse stunted our plans for quite some time, and in the interim, many successful channels we enjoy have been squelched - censored - or outright obliterated.
Were founded on two core principals, Entertainment and honesty. The latter seems to ruffle feathers at YT, as we speak our minds with little in the way of catering to others. In short we call it as we see it.
Feel free to check us out, or to message me with suggestions. (I know were not up to par with many channels / podcasts, but this is more of a "for fun" project.)
Personally I would like both my group, and myself to make a bit of that sweet advertiser cash, do collaborations, and be brutally honest...
