I pretty much despise YouTube, but in the last couple of months I have actually found two channels that I like: JCS and That Chapter. Both are true crime related, the first one analyses the body language and psychology of interrogations and other footage; the latter just tells the story of crimes and mysteries, but I like the way Mike tells stories and he’s the only Youtuber who I can stand showing his face in a video.

I heard good things about this one when looking for history channels and had it subscribed as a bookmark. The annoying thing about the history channels is that they're so focused on wars and stuff and I find those things really boring. I'll try to check this one out soon.

Most of the channels I follow are music related, if you like languages check out Ecolinguist (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChqLwf ... X9DGnqr_CA) he asks people from different nationnalites to speak to each other in their native tongue or dialect to see how well they can understand each other. Obviously he only uses languages that have the same roots (most of the time it's either romance or slavic) or if it's a local dialect only one part of a country's population speaks, he uses participants that speaks the ''official" language of said country.

I''d say that at least half of the Historia Civilis videos are on battles, but it's not as nerdy about the battle aspects as YouTube channels on WW2 etc. Unfortunately a lot of ancient history in the way it is told in popular history focuses on the battles rather than other things.

Historia Civilis has recently made quite a few videos not on ancient history, this 2-parter video (with no battles) is one of the best he's done imo:

The one's I'd most want to highlight are music-related, namely Adam Neely and David Bruce. The first is a jazz bassist, the second a classical composer, but they both have a very open approach to music and music theory, and a pretty wide array of subjects they talk about as well as some interesting musical experiments they've participated in, like composing challenges and stuff like that. I don't know much about music theory (I have no musical ability or training whatsoever) so I'm sometimes a bit overwhelmed by what they talk about, but they manage to be pretty clear at all times.

For movies, I'd recommend Be Kind Rewind, who does video centered on Hollywood actresses, often but not always through the lens of Oscar wins, but more generally about women in the industry. If you're a French speaker, I'd strongly recommend Blow Up, they do videos centering on a theme and citing a bunch of examples from many different films (with clips) and ending with a top 5, all done in a pretty lighthearted, fun way.

Daily all facts, no fluff videos on nutrition from a doctor that actually backs up his claims with the best evidence available, and as a trust bonus, gives away the money he makes from youtube, book sales, and speaking engagements to his research team and to charities. Double trust bonus: dude isn't hawking a line of supplements like 99% of on-screen doctors w/ a focus on nutrition.

Tranquil and very well-edited cooking videos.

I watch every week Kill Tony https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwzCMi ... zyjWiJaseg tho it is not up to par with pre-code. It is 1min open mic with a few regulars and a band that stays in character and panel of comics commenting on the set afterwards and talking stuff. Also a bit more vaudeville stuff sometimes. Sounds corny but i dont think it is. Definitely not for everyone tho because of Tony and his interests

Rick Glassman (high functioning autist comic) is usually fun if there is endearing guest https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYCGsN ... kfQopRMP7w

It's hard to say which channel is my favorite, because my interests change from month to month, and usually I get bored of a channel after a while.

Recently I've been interested in Two Minute Papers. In each video he summarizes a different research paper, related to AI and/or neural networks.

This channel is both hilarious and genius. 100K subscribers is a lot but it seriously seems like it should be once of those gigantic youtube channels

Kirsten Dirksen - A lady goes around Italy and North America and other places to (with her husband and kids in a lot of the cases) observing alternative/cheap/innovative housing architecture and talking to their occupants. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDsElQ ... LgnW-7v-cQ

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell - Animated shorts describing and explaining a whole bunch of stuff in a fun way. https://www.youtube.com/user/Kurzgesagt

Motivedia - Guy with wonderful voice talks about boxing. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq99Ik ... DaV6eWlCmg

TwoSetViolin - 2 guys make fun of Classical music and musicians and themselves. It can be terrible in a funny way. The kicker for me is that they're from Brisbane. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAzKFA ... e-AEI0WFFw

I also like TED talks.

The videos Kirsten Dirksen makes are amazing! The places she visits are very inspiring, but the thing I love most about her channel is her style of editing, it's very slow and calm, giving the viewer time to soak in all of the details. Highly recommended.
Other channels I follow are The Needle Drop/ Fantano, Tiny desk, Vsauce, Vice.

Some dumb answers, but honest ones:

Very much enjoy Corridor Crew's "VFX Artists React to..." series, where they watch clips featuring special effects from old and new movies and break down how they were made. They are really smart, knowledgeable guys who are good at breaking down complex concepts for people like yours truly. They also have a Stunts version of the series where we invite professional stunt men and women to discuss how dangerous stunts are pulled off, which is even more interesting to me.

And if I'm ever depressed I just watch a Seananners video and most of the time I'm better (for example). Dude's laugh can cure cancer.

A lie ain't a 'side of the story.' It's just a lie.

I've only ever liked Fantano, and I still think he's awesome, but once I got really hardcore into film, I stopped watching his stuff every day. I don't keep up with new release albums anymore, so why watch a review of something I'm not going to hear?

He has a separate channel where he posts videos that are not reviews, check that out. I find his Let's Argue series to be quite entertaining
