    Rat's all folks...

    It is said that "all good things must come to an end", but what a stupid saying. Like... Ice cream, right? Why should ice cream ever end? People like it. Well, nonetheless, YouTuber News: The Podcast, at least for now, must bid you farewell. Who knows? Perhaps like a phoenix from the ashes it will return in some form or another, or like Gandalf, it will come back wearing a different cloak, retaining all of its undeniable qualities and gaining even more besides.

    Anyway. Thank you for your support and do remember that Benedict will continue forever on the YouTuber News YouTube channel, not least because his contract states that he must do it forever, until he dies and possibly beyond.

From Global Awards to Global Lawsuits

I love this show yo I began my journey like sometime in 2018 with the snapchat show, jumping into drama with a plastic rat & zero context. I fell in love.
I just began listening to the podcasts of Youtuber News, though I began listening during the final weeks of its unforeseen demise — which seems weird because we do not know which force (assuming it is legal) would withhold all the lawsuits against its content all at once like a flashmob.
I’ve always felt part of the loop when engaging in this show and my spirits are always lifted, effectively distracting my demons.
so although our time of fresh content comes to an end, ironically as a news show, i can expect this podcast to always remain relevant within my childhood and my generation’s somewhat inside-joke type humor.
