For the second year in a row, a trio of YouTube stars will sit down with the President of the United States. This year’s lucky content creators are Destin Sandlin of Smarter Every Day, beauty expert Ingrid Nilsen, and vlogger Adande “Swoozie” Thorne, and their conversation with President Barack Obama went live at 2:15 PM EST on January 15th.
YouTube’s latest White House interview comes just a few days after President Obama’s final State of the Union address, which he delivered on January 12th. In their conversations with him, the YouTube stars will discuss the most topical issues to them and their fans. In the days leading up to their White House visit, Sandlin, Nilsen, and Thorne all turned to their viewers and asked them to submit any questions they want the president to answer.
The live stream for YouTube’s latest presidential interview will live on the White House YouTube channel, where, at the time of this post, it is currently on air. It is also embedded here:
YouTube’s first conversation with President Obama took place last January, when Bethany Mota, Hank Green, and GloZell Green took turns querying him. That stream ended up drawing more than 88,000 concurrent viewers; expect this one to be similarly popular.
