I am so invested in this whole drama with the Try Guys. Tl;dr version: Ned was kicked out of the group because he was caught on video cheating on his lovely wife (despite loving his wife being his whole brand) with his subordinate Alex (who is engaged!).
ThatDangDad is an underappreciated leftie channel. It's run by an LG(B)T man, former police officer and ex-Christian who is now a police and prison abolitionist. He keeps it under half an hour, and has a calm demeanor and almost ASMR-ish quality. Also produces his own music and is easy on the eyes!
