The reason I don’t like that format is it’s a one-way communication medium. From mouth to ear. A stream.
All that’s required is to laugh or frown or go “hey” at the right times or disagree but there’s no back-and-forth dialog.
The viewers can “talk amongst themselves” but the influencer influences –and well, I try to keep my mind clear somewhat, not perfectly of course or even close.
Well, following news is a hobby.
Sometimes I have it as a hobby and sometimes I don’t.
I follow certain topics that interest me and I try to keep my eyes peeled for a general “what’s happening right now” but a lot of it is mind-candy and often results in “this is who /what I should not like and why”
