The best way to get to know your YouTube Faves

1. Shane and Friends

Veteran YouTuber Shane Dawson (aka: Dane Shawson) and his producer Lauren combine interviews, impressions, characters and good ol’ fashioned fun to make a podcast that is fun for the whole you. You can listen to it right here or follow his YouTube channel to hear incredible interview from people over the entirety of the web – from RuPaul’s Drag Race co-host Michelle Visage, Vine-star Brittany Furlan and even our OTP, Shoey!


2. Not Too Deep With Grace Helbig

Hilarious lady Grace Helbig – who is (disappointingly) not actually hella big but in fact regular-human sized, describes itself as being ‘more about the laffs than the feels’. Imagine this: an hour hang out with Grace, Jack Ferry, Mitchell Davis plus one extra YouTuber discussing whether it would be a good idea for have hotdogs for knees and deciding who was the best candidate to throw a plate of cold spaghetti at. It makes for magical listening and just launched Season 2 with Niki Limo!


3. Jenna And Julien

Jenna ‘Jenna Marbles’ Marbleopolis and her charming boyfriend and spelling-names-with-e’s-instead-of-a’s-advocate Julien discuss all kinds of interesting topics on this hugely popular podcast. And the best thing about – it’s all on video too! Whether they’re discussing SERIOUS issues dominating the YouTube community such as all the React World drama or trying to figure out movie from truly terrible descriptions, it’s a must listen for Jenna fans. Here is their latest offering, which is all about the hot-button topic of YouTuber Networks:


4. PewDiePie’s BroKen Podcast

PewDiePie has this podcast with fellow fun-lover CinnamonToastKen (hence the hilarious name BRO+KEN) and as you’d expect it’s a high-energy ball of delightful nonsense. You can listen to it for free on iTunes here. It recently went on hiatus following Pewds’ crazy work schedule, but has come back to light in 2016 with guests such as Emma Blackery, JackSepticEye and Cryotic! Prepare yourself for an hour of absolute idiocy in the greatest formats ever known to man.


5. Tyler Oakley’s Psychobabble

Each week Tyler and his best friend Korey Kuhl bring you a “half hour of unfiltered gossip sessions, pop culture scrutiny, and stories never told before”. It’s a must-listen for fans of Tyler’s work especially if you’re keen to know who he would have a “brorgy” with, if you want to learn all the BTS secrets behind the filming of Snervous and most importantly, who Tyler and Korey consider the greatest Queens to have ever walked the Earth. Also, there’s frequent calls to Queen Jackie, which is worth subscribing to ALONE.


6.  Dear Hank & John

The Vlogbrothers serve up advice, musings and fun times on this much-beloved podcast. Get yourself some wisdom and entertainment, all in one go but remember one thing – never truly take advice from these lovable idiots. They make look smart, but some of this advice is dubious at best! Oh and yes John Green fans, he does talk about Wimbledon FC… A LOT.


For even more podcast goodness, iTunes also has a special page that’s dedicated purely to podcasts hosted by internet stars. You can get to that right here.
