THE PATH TO TRUTH IS UNIQUE FOR EVERYONE. For some folks, it’s a matter of seeing a documentary film about 9/11. For others, it’s reading a book or magazine article that plants a seed of curiosity. And still for others, it’s a life experience that sparks a quest to find answers. For YouTuber Really Graceful, it was all of the above. Most YouTubers in the truth space start their channels with the intent to become “Truthers” online, but that wasn’t the case for Really Graceful. She was your typical vlogger, discussing nail polish and totally inappropriate books. After taking a three year hiatus from vlogging, she came back to her channel with a renewed outlook on the world. But instead of starting a new channel, or deleting the old videos, Really Graceful decided to keep everything posted from her days of being a typical vlogger. Her decision to leave everything up allows the Really Graceful channel to be more than just a truth channel, but an online journal. A glimpse into how someone’s worldview can change so dramatically.
On this episode, we speak to Really Graceful about how she got to where she is now, as well as something called #elsagate. Ever leave your child with an iPad or some other tablet and YouTube? Beware! Your kids might be clicking on what they think is an innocent video about their favorite Disney characters, but in reality, they are adult content not suited for innocent eyes. The phenomenon has caused many to question how these folks are not only getting away with copyright issues, which YouTube is so stringent on, as well as being allowed to get their videos in front of so many millions of children. We cover these things and more on this episode of Canary Cry Radio!
