Q: What type of YouTube videos do you watch in your free time?
A: If you’ve watched the channels, you can see exactly what I watch in my free time. I do take the channels seriously, but I also try my best not to make it feel like a job. The line between free time and working on the channels has become kind of blurred, which I’m actually very okay with. Outside of content for the channels though I watch a lot of live streaming and gaming content.
