Recently, I've been writing articles sharing some of my favorite channels on YouTube. Last week I featured Smarter Everyday, and I've also covered Ten Second Songs, Binging with Babish, You Suck at Cooking and others.

Today I've got another great channel: First We Feast, which consists of a lot of food-related shows, but more specifically, I want to talk about one show called Hot Ones. In this show, host Sean Evans does interviews with celebrities while all parties involved eat progressively hotter wings. He gets good questions in there about their latest projects and movies, but the show really gets good when they start turning up the heat.

One of my favorite sketch comedy shows is Key and Peele and they don't disappoint as the wings get spicier and spicier:

James Franco and Bryan Cranston talk movies and eat wings. They felt the heat, but finished like champs:

Technically Literate: Original works of short fiction with unique perspectives on tech, exclusively on CNET.

Solving for XX: The industry seeks to overcome outdated ideas about "women in tech."
