Shira Lazar is a Jew you should know, if you don’t already. She has made a career out of being a “go-to” video blogger on YouTube, which landed her a job at CBSNews.com On the Scene. Her newest venture, which started this past December, is called the Partners Project, a YouTube-based talk show for Internet video stars. Once she was called the “Barbara Walters of YouTube”, a fancy feather in her cap.
Shira dialed in a video chat with me over Skype to talk about her career, bagels and twit-pic-ing Bat Mitzvahs. Check out the full conversation, and be sure to view some of her live coverage of the Grammys on YouTube this weekend. We have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll hear of Shira Lazar, a Jew You Should Know.
