In partnership with Netflix, Buzzfeed News produced a documentary series exploring global pop culture.
First released on Netflix August 2018, Follow This launched with 7 episodes.
Produced as a series of investigative journalism, the series explores themes like Tech addiction, Intersex rights, Amish romance novels, ASMR, etc.
Follow This in addition to exploring, gives abundant information in each episode.
For example, in Internet Whisperers, the first episode hosted by Scaachi Koul explores and makes accessible the underexplored ASMR therapies soothing persons with anxieties and insomnia with using sensory cues and stimulus to generate an autonomous sensory meridian response and how this therapy has been severally considered as pornography.
Each episode thoroughly researched, doesn’t, however, give definitive answers or solutions to the issues discussed.
Newer episodes have been released in batches in September. Wikipedia predicts that new episodes will also be released in November.
While streaming Follow This, it is important to keep an open mind and be objective as the content can be shocking as they are informative. Each episode does not fail to challenge the mind to curiosity and being aware of global pop culture trends and realities.
