Learn more about the history of the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel on real Wikipedia.
For a more comprehensive list of all of the vloggers that were originally included in the Vlogs Channel line-up on the Geek & Sundry Wiki.
Basically, the vloggers were originally introduced to each other in 2013 through an Internet wide talent-search for new shows and personalities to feature on the Geek & Sundry Vlogs channel. When the channel launched, some vloggers were established as part of the channel and others were incorporated from the community (often referred to as the "Vlogger Expansion Pack"). Each vlogger specialized in a certain area of geekdom. After working together on the Geek & Sundry Network and through various collaborations, they became fast friends and continued collaborating independently-- including an ongoing weekly live hangout initiated by Mitch Hutts and James Brent Isaacs.
