About The Channel
Started back in February of 2014, the Jeff Holiday Youtube Channel began with a series of horribly improvised talkie videos about GMOs and wingnuts Jeff had the displeasure of debating with on the internet. This wasn't altruism, he just got tired of saying the same things over and over so he figured he could just throw a video clip at them instead.
Greatly supported by his wife who pushed him to make more videos and then even came around to starring in them with him, Memorie has been essential to the channel becoming a success. Jeff, much like many irritably self-critical content creators, regularly needs a kick in the ass to let go and just make some entertainment for the people.
While the channel itself started out as a debunking channel for dangerous pseudoscience, it evolved to include videos on identity politics and fight against encroaching authoritarianism. As it stands now, both Jeff and Memorie see their efforts as ultimately challenging bad ideas either in pseudoscience or on college campuses, seeking to provide a (snarky) moderate and calm viewpoint and get some good laughs in while they're at it.

Who are these wingnuts?
Jeff is a child of the early internet, cutting his teeth on dank ASCII memes when you still had to connect through baud modems. In his time developing into a tyrannical shitlord, he's enjoyed hobbying with coding, web design and administration. He sucked at all of them. That's why he makes videos.
He's a current college student studying Biology. He's a science nerd, but loathes science 'communicators' and 'cheerleaders'. Preferring the art of debunking rather than shaking his pompoms for the latest shit awful pop-sci claims, he has an unapologetic manner about how he handles dangerous pseudoscience.
A staunch critic of identity politics and all social movements, Jeff does not share your label. He doesn't want to be part of your community. His ideas are his alone so no one has to defend them for him.
Fun fact: Jeff actually published a horror novel a few years back: The Dead Dream Wakes (Kindle Edition).
Memorie grew up in Washington and as a young woman took to the road in search of the great American adventure. Through her many travels she found a worldly type of wisdom one only gets from a hard life.
Unfortunately she also found a strange kind of indoctrination in the form of 'Rainbow Family'. The travelling folk and dirty hippy festivals thrown in the woods were rife with a unique subculture that suffered from a superiority complex of ignorance. Chakras are real, spiritual vibrations are a thing and more. Memorie describes her settling down and learning objectivity and science as 'breaking the mind conditioning of a cult'.
As a fiercely independent thinker, Memorie also rejects a lot of social movements. After being told she has 'internalized misogyny' because she disagreed with too many feminists, she just embraced it and went full blown shitlord; preferring, however, the alternative title of 'Cunt Squad'.
