Roundtable Live!

Larabee serves as the host for the Twitch podcast Roundtable Live! which airs every Friday, and is also uploaded on his YouTube channel. The regular lineup for the podcast is Larabee, Northernlion, RockLeeSmile and MathasGames, with occasional appearances from Michaelalfox, AlpacapatrolSinvictaDan Gheesling and LastGreyWoIf.

On August 14, 2018 it was announced via Twitter that Roundtable Live! would end, with Mathas going into detail on his Twitter account stating, while the four of them loved working on Roundtable, the decision was made to end it to lessen their collective workloads and reduce the risk of burnout on the four hosts

NLSS civil war

In mid-October 2017, Northernlion made a quip saying Larabee couldn't rap, leading to Larabee posting a tweet on 28th October saying if the tweet received ten likes he'd upload the diss track he recorded out of spite - which, of course, received hundreds of likes, so the diss track was posted.

In response to this, several other members of the NLSS crew started posting diss tracks, with (as of November 2, 2017) Dan Gheesling, LastGreyWolf, MathasGames, alpacapatrol, Sinvicta and indeimaus all posting diss tracks of their own aimed at the various NLSS members in the following days, while fans of the various channels started using the hashtags TeamBaer and TeamNL on Twitter in response. Not to be outdone, Larabee posted a second diss track, this time featuring his wife Alyse, with Dan Gheesling taking the brunt of it.
