  • I was born in Hoboken, NJ and say I'm from New York City because it's right across the river. New Yorkers hate it and it's hilarious. Hoboken has Sinatra and the first baseball game, though. (Also it's September and everyone should still be supporting their local restaurants! I had wings last night from... America's Best Wings, I think it was called, it's in Baltimore, and you can get yourself a classic local chicken box, so, shout out)

  • When big 'rona is gone, can you guys please do some supernatural episodes - or have you left those behind at Buzzfeed? I also like your "are you scared?" eps.. and the puppet history (despite my fear of The Muppets, I actually really enjoy it). Everything you guys do is great, but would love more creepy vibes

My question is what do we call Steven fans? We have #shaniacs and #boogaras... #limlovers ? Curious fellow ohioian. You all are amazing! Also did you get Watcher name from the watcher episode of Buzzfeed Unsolved True Crime?

  • WARNING: DO NOT tip your drivers through the app! Leave money out for them with a note! If you tip through the app the company will strike that from the driver’s salary! I know this is a sponsorship so Steven was instructed on what to say by Doordash, but please tip your drivers with physical money to ensure that they actually get that tip!

  • I work at a small restaurant in Chicago and I appreciate all the love you guys gave to us restaurant workers! Thank you!! It's very scary going to work everyday not knowing what can happen but I'm sending my support and love to all the other small business and local restaurant workers right now. Remember if you're ordering takeout to try and call the place directly since it supports them a little more than through a delivery site!!

  • 4:08 tbh i always associate Schaumburg with Bob Rohrman because, living in the area, those commercials are ingrained in my brain. and yeah it would make sense to just say "I'm from Chicago" if you're from somewhere like Schaumburg, that's close enough, i say that when people ask where i'm from so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ what i'm saying is i'm on Shane's side

  • Aunt Jemima’s appearance on the bottle’s sticker is reminiscent of the Antebellum South. Not a black woman from the early 20th century, or mid-century modern. Nope. From the era of household slavery. In short, America’s relationship with black “Mammy” figures in pop culture is kinda sketchy. Black men were only depicted in early movies as either lazy vagrants or minstrel figures, and black women only as “mammies” or tough/emasculating. Hattie McDaniel was the first black woman to win an Academy Award, but the audience was segregated so she had to walk up from the back of the theatre, and her character was palatable to white audiences of that time because “Mammy” was servile and dim-witted.

  • Hi Watcher! I love seeing your content every week. I don't comment too often, but I wanted to say thank you so much for that inspiring donation to front line health care workers. I'm a nurse and I'm watching this after a long shift, where I took care of patients with covid-19. It was a really hard day, but a local restaurant gave us free lunch just like you guys did, and it was definitely much appreciated. Also, thanks for giving me something fun to view after work. Keep it up! :)

  • I visited NYC a few years back and happen to go to Madam Vo for pho. Their Pho was a total revelation, even though I had eaten thousands of bowls of pho. The broth was rich, complex and light. The only reason we went to Madam Vo was because the dim sum place down the street was full.
