This week, Machinima is launched their newest webseries, FYI.

The first two episodes were released to the Machinima main page on June 1, and beginning June 15th, FYI will air exclusively on go90.

Here's how they describe the show:

Fandom, geeks, gamers...what do they have in common? They all gravitate to a video game, comic book, movie, TV show or other form of IP, identifying with that cultural asset in a deeply intimate, personal way. Simply put, they make up the foundation of fandom and gaming's deep niche subcultures while the rest of us, including other geeks and gamers, are outsiders trying to understand.

Now, Machinima's new series FYI reveals the mysteries behind these subcultures, fascinating origin stories and geeky trends. Featuring narration by popular online personality and VO actor Brizzy Voices (1.1M social followers), FYI uses whiteboard-style animation and clever voiceover to bring the rest of us inside some of the beloved and complex factions in the geek world including Otherkin, SeaPunks, Internet Cats, Batman's supervillain Doomsday, and more. The first two episodes of the series, which take viewers inside the cultural phenomenon behind Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, air weekly beginning today (June 1) on Machinima's YouTube channel. The rest of the season, beginning June 15, will air exclusively on go90.

Check out a preview of the Otherkin episode, which provides a taste of the uniqueness of FYI:
