My Sit Down With Peter Santenello on His Series About Hasidic Jews

  • 139

YouTuber and video maker Peter Santenello has had a desire to tell the stories about communities that mainstream media won’t cover. He’s traveled all over the world, sharing an insider’s perspective on less known communities. A few months ago, he was invited to Brooklyn to meet and film many members of the Hasidic community. He and most of his hundreds of thousands of YouTube viewers walked away with a profoundly different understanding of the community and a newfound respect.

In this interview we touch on why mainstream media repeats the same stories over and over again, how Peter got connected with the community, what his views were beforehand and how his views about Hasidim changed after spending time with them.

    Hey Allison, I am a long time fan of yours, and I was disappointed by this interview. I have been obsessively watching Peter’s video’s, and was so excited to see hear him speak to you and share his perspectives. But you dominated the conversation, and made it all about yourself, and your story/viewpoint. I wanted to hear HIS.

      Thanks for your comment, Rivky. Unfortunately there was a lag in the video speed due to my internet connection, so I didn’t hear Peter at many times in the conversation and spoke more or added in more questions to fill in the blank space. I didn’t realize what had happened until some people started pointing it out once the video went live. We usually record my podcast on just audio and we don’t have the lag like that and I usually talk much less. I think the video component slowed down the speed and made the flow of the conversation more challenging.
