She also has a series called 1-Cup in which she plays a game for one session, which are uploaded randomly.
Side Channel (DexterityBonus)Edit
Dodger's side channel, DexterityBonus, is used for her daily vlog show, Coffeh Time in which she drinks coffee (or other beverages such as, tea and water as well as Mountain Dew and root beer on special occasions) and talks about her day. She is sometimes joined by her friends, once being joined for coffee by Hannah.
