Strap on your favourite hazmat suit and join the Tube Rats as they take a deep dive into the internet’s most popular video-sewer. This week, the Rats are joined by comedian and Bray Wyatt impersonator Jason Overman, to discuss three thought-provoking documentaries from the YouTube archives.
WARNING: As we are discussing documentaries, this episode tries to tackle some difficult issues. Our first film this week deals with explicit descriptions of sexual abuse. Listeners who would like to avoid the discussion should skip ahead at 5:46, and continue listening from 30:00.
