Following the disturbing news that Ruby Franke had been arrested on suspicion of abusing her kids, who she filmed all the time as part of YouTube channel '8 Passengers', the debate around the ethics of family vlogging has reappeared online.

On this first episode of Scroll Deep, the newly rebranded show formerly known as YouTuber News, Benedict Townsend takes a deep dive into family vlogging, the new laws emerging to protect children, and the recent drama involving Everleigh LaBrant's song "Like Taylor Swift".
