Hi ! I stumbled across Soft White Underbelly one day on YouTube. Of course, it was your most famous interview with the Whittaker family. I now watch a video every day - trying to get caught up but also because I have learned so much from watching the stories of these people. Watching the interviews with the people on Skid Row made me realize that I might have been somewhat judgmental before but these stories could have been me or you or anyone. I have realized that drug addiction and homelessness doesn't discriminate but also that there are a few common denominators that I was unaware of. I subscribed here so that I might try to help. I think what you are doing is wonderful. I have an online store and it consists mainly of products that will result in donations to helping our oceans, and for women who are victims of human trafficking, domestic violence and repression and I hope it can make a bit of a difference in someone's life. Thanks for everything you are doing to bring awareness to people like me and the rest of the world.
My husband first came across one of Mark's videos & he became a regular watcher, then he showed some to me & now we both regularly watch the videos. Mark does such a fantastic job giving all these people a voice & allowing them to tell their own life stories. Thank you Mark, keep up the great work!
I discovered SWU by chance about 5 weeks ago. I'm trying not to binge to the point that I've seen them all (other than the new one Mark uploads daily) but it's hard! Thank you for doing this, Mark!
Hi, Nice to meet you all! I have been with SWU since the first video. I was a member on Patreon for the past almost 2 years since inception, but have decided to come here instead to support Mark directly (and get away from some of the hub-bub). Viewing the videos each day for me is like church.
Love, all the way from Brooklyn. NYC -Sharona
After weeks of Youtube, my first time here. These interviews are golden and small sample of the real world that surrounds us. Some of these people are partially hidden and most, partially ignored by the rest of us, the masses. The man behind the notion of creating these interviews and their content must be applauded and shared and supported, because most of us watchers have seen none, or very little of the lives and stories we are introduced to by these people. Most of these stories should be subtitled, the story then translated, so that the world can see the state and sorrow and glee and how unjust life can be. Someone on the Youtube channel commented that we mesmerize with these people stories, but there or dozens, hundreds in your very town or city or neighborhood. Share with them a jacket or a book or shoes or a cup of coffee. Just a thought. Peace.
