BrainCraft is written and hosted by Vanessa Hill (@nessyhill) for PBS Digital Studios.

I made this video in response to comments I received on my past two uploads. These were not the worst comments, and most of these are still in the comments thread. From talking to other female creators, I know I'm not alone in receiving comments like this, whether they're personal, directed at our content or directed at females in general. We shouldn't have to put up with this, though it's difficult when we want to keep a healthy discussion with other viewers. I really appreciate you commenting and your support overall. Regular content will be back next week!
