1. YouTubers Interviewing President Obama at the White House Today
Tune in today at 2:15 PM EST on youtube.com/whitehouse to see Ingrid Nilsen, SWooZie, and SmarterEveryday’s Destin Sandlin interview President Barack Obama at the White House!

PewDiePie announced this week that he’s starting his own Creator Network, called “Revelmode” under Maker Studios.
