Benedict Townsend brings you all of the latest headlines from the world of online video! From the wildest beauty drama to whatever nonsense Logan Paul has been up to this week.

Episodes

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.
