Lauren Chen is a political and social commentator on YouTube. She has produced content under her channel and name, worked with Blaze TV, and used the pseudonym “The Roaming Millenial” on some of her early work. She reviews and creates content primarily in the political spectrum and recently started branching into other media avenues with her YouTube channel @Mediaholic and different alt-tech platforms.
Mikhaila Peterson and Lauren Chen discuss the COVID-19 restrictions in Canada and the USA, the changing experience of higher education, how to stay sane during lockdowns, Lauren’s top political issues, and Lauren’s primary demographic.
They also discuss health and the carnivore diet, the Canadian healthcare system, and whether it’s better to have mice problems or lizard problems in your house.
This episode was sponsored by Ground News. They are a Canadian company that is a comparison platform for news. So, rather than trying to find an unbiased news source (which is pretty much impossible), Ground news compares how sources from across the political spectrum are covering a story so you can see whether or how an outlet is changing the story to fit an underlying narrative. They have an app called Ground News for your phone. Ground News is an apolitical news app that you can trust to give you all the details of a story regardless of your political ideology.
