Hello Internet is an audio podcast hosted by YouTube content creators Brady Haran and CGP Grey.[2][3] It has no schedule.


The podcast features discussions pertaining to their lives as professional creators for YouTube, the content of their most recent videos as well as their interests and annoyances. Typical topics include technology etiquette, book, movie and TV show reviews, plane accidents, vexillology, futurology, and the differences between Haran and Grey's personalities and lifestyles.[4][5]


  • It debuted in 2014 and currently has 105 episodes, two bonus episodes, and one episode which was released exclusively as a vinyl record.[6][7]
  • In 2015, Brady Haran and the podcast were credited with reappropriating the word "freebooting" to describe copyright infringement via re-hosting videos on platforms such as Facebook, a practice typically undertaken to profit from advertisements alongside the content. Facebook has since adopted tools to address this.[8][9][10]


The podcast peaked in 2014 as the #1 iTunes podcast in the United Kingdom, United States, Germany, Canada, and Australia.[11] It was also selected as one of Apple's best new podcasts of 2014.[12] The Guardian included the podcast among its 50 best of 2016, naming episode 66 ("A Classic Episode") its episode of the year; the paper described the podcast as having "in-depth debates and banter that is actually amusing".[13]
