BSP-056: Thoughts on PewDiePie, Disney, & YouTube

On episode 56 of the BSP, the main focus is discussing PewDiePie getting dropped by Maker Studio, YouTube canceling part of his monetization ability, and the cancellation of Scare PewDiePie. I share my thoughts on this event as well as political correctness, and what I think society needs to do to move forward.

Before this, I share one of the most satisfying moments of my life, and a dream that explains why I'm in no rush to jump into another relationship, as well as why my previous relationships have likely failed.

In news, I talk about Russia sending Edward Snowden back to the US, the possibility of Social Media Passwords being required to enter the U.S. and updated to the UK OSA. As far TV, I recommend Mind Field on YouTube Red. Lastly, what I have been testing, I cover verizon unlimited very briefly, and then getting set up with YubiKey, and my current status of Complete Privacy & Security Desk Reference.
