[=SourceFed=] is a {{spinoff}}, of sorts, of ''WebVideo/ThePhilipDeFrancoShow'' that [=DeFranco=] launched in 2012 as part of YouTube's content initiative. The channel runs regular shows Monday-Thursday, featuing five stories a day, 4 minute max per video. On Fridays they do "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Comment Commentary]]". Weekends originally featured movie reviews and Movie Club, as well as HilariousOuttakes, behind-the-scenes videos, one on ones, game competitions on the weekends.

The channel started with [=DeFranco=], [[Creator/BaratsAndBereta Joe Bereta]], Lee Newton and Elliott Morgan, and [=DeFranco=] as the first commentators, and Kevin Brueck hosted "Curb Cash" on Saturdays. A couple weeks in [=DeFranco=] left, since the channel was intended to be separate of him, and let the others run the show. "Curb Cash" was eventually pulled due to low popularity, leaving the three commentators as the only members on the show. Steve Zaragoza, Trisha Hershberger, and Meg Turney would fill in when other members were gone for the main show, but as they were not employees of [=DeFranco=], they were not permanent fixtures on the commentaries. All three joined the show in short succession as official members in Fall 2012, and now all six rotate for presenting news and hosting weekend content. They all appear on the commentaries unless they're gone. They also run as a non-acting ProductionPosse for [=DeFranco=], joining him for [=VidCon=] and the Presidential debates, and he occasionally appears on weekend shows. For a span of time in 2013, Ross Everett joined the ranks of the hosts. In April 2014, Elliott and Meg both departed from [=SourceFed=], while Ross went back to just writing the stories.

They can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/SourceFed?ob=0&feature=results_main here.]]

Another {{spinoff}} channel, [=SourceFed=] Nerd, was launched in May 2013, with a focus on tech, video games and comic book news. It's also the new home of Table Talk and Movie Club.

----
!!Tropes associated with [=SourceFed=]:
* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Happens a lot in their blooper videos when they run into a name or word that they're unfamiliar with.
* {{Adorkable}}: All of them show adorkable tendencies. Considering that Phillip [=DeFranco=] is also called adorkable, it may be a running thing throughout his company.
** "Feelin' Good With Joe Bereta" really emphasizes Joe's {{Adorkable}} side.
** "Obvious-Lee News" is often the same thing for Lee.
* AirHugging: Averted. None of the men are scared to get up close and personal with each other.
* AscendedExtra: Anyone who normally works behind the scenes who shows up on camera on a semi-regular basis. Ross is the most well-known but Sam and DJ are gaining popularity.
* BadBoss: One Comment Commentary has Joe, Lee, and Elliott pretend [=DeFranco=] is one, citing Lee being on massage duty because of her "nimble, aggressive hands" and Joe being forced to dance for him.
* BadassBeard: Steve and Joe (when he lets his grow) has one.
* BadassMoustache: Joe (when he lets his grow, again).
* BerserkButton: Whenever the news is about someone harmful to children, Joe tends to be the most vocal (read angry/furious) about it. Having children himself, when you take into account his PapaWolf tendencies, it's quite understandable.
** Lets just say Elliott doesn't take having a laser pointed at him well, as seen in "Men Face Prison After Laser Pointer Prank" starting at 1:59.
** Trisha will not tolerate anyone messing with someones laptop
--> '''Trisha''': ''You don't mess with someones laptop, that's punishable by death!.''
* BilingualBonus: Joe calls himself "Menso" on an episode about Mensa. "Menso" means "stupid" in Spanish.
* BiTheWay: Meg, who casually revealed that she liked girls when she asked her heterosexual panelmates if it would be weird for them to have sex with clones of themselves.
* BlatantLies: Meg claiming that her first Democratic National Convention video was about "freedom," as opposed to her playing on a water slide.
* BlondesAreEvil: Played with. Lee sometimes is put into this corner, especially during one of the comment commentaries where they discuss how touchy she is.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Lee, Trisha, and Meg, respectively. Subverted, in that both Lee and Meg have stated that they dye their hair.
* BrainlessBeauty: Clearly averted for Lee, but she doesn't mind to poke fun at herself about this sometimes ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkPuIrHFzjo&feature=BFa&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA 2:55]]):
--> '''Co-Worker''': If you're falling down, put that dinosaur over your face, Lee!
--> '''Lee''': Watch out, protect that face, it's all you got!... [[DeadpanSnarker Thanks, Mom]].
--> HilarityEnsues in the office. Tony got the giggles and fell onto the ground.
** Also averted for Meg and Trisha
* TheBusCameBack: In the Christmas Extravaganza Benjamin Franklin Time Traveler made his big return
* ButtMonkey: Steve is playfully picked on because he had such a sheltered childhood.
** He's never had any surgeries, and has never broken a bone. His first plane ride was in 2012.
* CatchPhrase: Trisha and Steve have these
--> '''Trisha''': No, no! (waving finger)
--> '''Steve''': Weeeeelll
* ConspiracyTheorist: Lee, in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuIoydFk0Kg this video]], serves as a parody.
* CloudCuckoolander: Lee, Joe and Steve tend to do this most often.
* DeadpanSnarker: Elliott tends to stay in this mode the most, with Lee being this when not Cloudcuckoolander.
* DistractedByTheLuxury: Lee and a P.S. Vita. Phil declares she sucks at it, and takes it away from her at the end of the episode.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Lee is developing quite a fan base.
** Lee bragged about touching Jessica Nigri when she appeared on the PDS.
** Meg will usually join in with the guys when they say a female person is sexy.[[note]]which makes sense since Meg is [[{{Bi the way}} Bi]][[/note]]
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: So, so true. Lee is a huge fan of dinosaurs, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkPuIrHFzjo&feature=BFa&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA she even owns a dinosaur plush at the office (2:36 and more)!]] Aaaaaaaaawwwwwwww.
** Though the boys may disagree, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDWb2c5USXs&feature=BFa&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA as shown in Space Dinos, Easter Gren-eggs, & Birthday Time! it's Comment Commentary 12! (starting at 6:33)]]
*** Actually, Elliott went as far as to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UbHKjXHDFI&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA hide Dino Yuki Staff]] (2:30) from Lee.
** UpToEleven during the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9DCzk72DvQ&feature=bf_prev&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA CISPA: A Prehistoric Bill]] video: DINOFED!
* FreakOut: Elliot has a minor one in the "Porn Star Cannibal" video (all staged, of course). After having to cover so many crazy stories, he completly loses it.
** Completely loses it again when a Laser pointer is pointed on him.
* FromBadToWorse: {{Invoked}} during the story about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXAIS2anY5Y&feature=BFa&list=PL83DB5F40B743A518 killer spiders]] in a city of India...
-->'''Joe''':I'm sorry, I'm just reporting the news, but it gets worse.
-->'''Lee''':NO DEAR GOD NO!
* {{Goth}}: Lee and Elliott dress as them in honor of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ceh9yDcycjY&feature=BFa&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA World Goth Day]].
* GamerChick: Meg and Trisha.
* HappilyMarried: [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]]. Lee married herself, with Phil acting as the mayor representing the state of the Internet in "The Self Marriage Trend" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWu5iKgopJI&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA video]].
** Played straight with Joe, Steve, and Elliot.
* HufflepuffHouse: In this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkX1LID26Sw&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA&index=20 video]], the different members took a test on Pottermore in order to determine in which house they would belong. Joe got Griffyndor, Elliot got Ravenclaw and Lee got... Hufflepuff. She does ''not'' take it well, because of the implications of the trope.
* IsThisWhatAngerFeelsLike: Lee's rant in the second comment commentary about how women can't argue.
* {{Jerkass}}: Troll Joe, picks on Lee during an entire video. He also attacked other sensitive topics:
--> '''Joe''': You're dumb, Sourcefed is dumb, Sourcefed Nerd is dumb, puppies are dumb... Oh, and so are charities. Charities are dumb!
* KillItWithFire: Lee's reaction to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXAIS2anY5Y&feature=BFa&list=PL83DB5F40B743A518 killer spiders story]].
* KubrickStare: Lee, during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okxrFUrRc00&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA Burping, Cheating, and Prometheus VS Madagascar... It's Comment Commentary 21!]], at 2:40). That girl is dangerous...
* MrFanservice: Joe. He loses his shirt sometimes, and even his pants during a blooper video ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQxxDLOQvGA&feature=BFa&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA 4:44]]).
* MusicalEpisode: Kind of. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIGw_PxKjS0 Behold!]] Featuring LaciGreen.
* NamedByDemocracy: Every year, Maxim Magazine makes a list of the top 100 hottest women. In 2012 they let the readers vote and you could do a write in, and add someone who wasn't on the list. Joe and Elliott told viewers to vote for Lee. They did. So much that they crashed the site! Maxim then did an article that included Lee and mentioned that she had "list potential." In the end, Lee landed in 57th place.
* NewMeat: In "{{VidCon}} Q&A With SourceFed!" they are asked who they would eat first if they were stranded on an island. Joe mentions that Ross is the new guy and that they aren't as emotionally attached to him.
--> '''Joe''': Oh, Ross is dead? Sucks.
* NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat: Lee's final statement about being sorted into Hufflepuff House. Elliot's reaction?
-->'''Elliot''': Yeah, tell yourself that.
* PapaWolf: Joe. Everytime a story is about a child put in danger, this pushes his BerserkButton and he makes it pretty clear that anyone who is harmful to children should deserve the worst punishment ever. Given the fact he's a proud father himself, it's quite understandable.
* PrimalFear: Spiders story. 'nuff said.
* RunningGag:
** Lee and dinosaurs.
** The introduction of guests, filling in for x because of y
** [Plasma Bomb/Hit/Eat/Smash/etc] [[PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel the like button.]]
** Benjamin Franklin Time Traveler, much to Elliott's and Phil's chagrin
** Meg and #[insert random group of people]Shaming
** Sexy Montages
** Getting Norged in the bloopers
** Steve punching Elliott
** Joe walking into the frame on a [=TableTalk=] just to drink Steve's water and leave
* ShirtlessScene: Joe, in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1UA4vt36x0&feature=BFa&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA "Woman goes TOPLESS in NYC"]] video.
* SixthRanger: Ross Everett, one of the writers, started making regular on-camera appearances in July 2013.
* ShoutOut:
** To [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]], for obvious reasons:
--> '''Joe''': Ok, so this trailer ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSYBpePPIqc&feature=bf_prev&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA 1:45]]) is gonna results in way too many "arrow to the knee" comments.
--> '''Lee''': Arrow to the knee!
** Guess who makes a quick cameo during the "Black Hole Ejected From Galaxy!" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Somx7CBK6Y&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA&index=20 video]] ? [[VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} The Space Core]].
** [[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!!]] ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OWMJiFkQV4&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA&index=20 here]]).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1G6k1ZTzeUQ "Scientists Breed Killer Frogs!"]] references ''WesternAnimation/FernGullyTheLastRainforest''.
* TeamMom: Trisha is often called the "Mom of [=SourceFed=]" by the other hosts.
* ThatCameOutWrong: In "Sexy Interns, Adorable Dogs, & Elliott's 3-Year-Old Friend... It's Comment Commentary 68!" Elliott mentions a 3-year-old friend that he has, Steve Lee and Joe all let him know how wrong that sounds.
* TopTenList: The "Top 10 Worst Remakes" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5xB-PnVIUY&feature=BFa&list=UU_gE-kg7JvuwCNlbZ1-shlA video]] and again with the "Top Ten Best Space Movies" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OWMJiFkQV4&feature=channel&list=UL video]]
* WorldOfPun: in "Bees, Time Travel, and 25 Years To Live on #TableTalk!" Steve, Ross, and Trisha go on an unbeelivable bee pun rant.
--> '''Trisha''': we're beehive on our shoots today.
