    So.. I was wondering in the infinite channels that is youtube, do any of you have some you would recommend in general?

    Personally, I find it difficult to discover new channels, my homepage simply recommends the same things I have seen a thousand times. But here are some I would recommend to everyone



    Incredibly complex subjects made accessible for everyone. If you are one of the three people that have not watched this channel - then you are welcome.

    Historia Civilis


    My favorite channel, related to matters of history. Incredibly throughout and a great storyteller, this man makes roman history come to life.



    Not for everyone granted, but I find them fucking hilarious. Step off your horse before visiting.



    If you are interested in chess, this is the channel for you. Agadmator is without equal in his ability to explain complex situations so anyone can follow - truly a joy to watch.

    Internet Historian


    Another channel that is dedicated to bullshitery. But he is funny as hell.

    High Score:
    Outside Xbox, https://youtube.com/user/outsidexbox and their sister channel Outside Xtra https://youtube.com/c/outsidextra

    Videogame channels, as the name might suggest. Outside Xbox primarily do Xbox games, although they've loosened that a bit over the last couple of years, while Outside Xtra do whatever takes their fancy. Both channels do a mix of list videos and let's plays (often just snippets for upcoming stuff rather than full playthroughs, although they do have a few full ones between them), and they've started doing some tabletop stuff as well - the Oxventure, which is a light-hearted D&D adventure with a flexible approach to rules; maybe not for D&D purists, but very entertaining otherwise, and a Blades in the Dark campaign which is a bit more serious.

    Overall, they're as much comedy as they are journalism (not that they really call themselves journalists, to be fair), with a lot of the humour coming from the fact that by their own admission, they're not the best gamers in the world.

    All of my recommendations are weeb stuff.

    But I do have one that's neat!

    They have a few different sections -
    Trope Talks: Red goes over common tropes in media, what they mean, variations of them, and examples of them in media. (Like Mary Sues!)
    History: Blue goes over famous historical events, both popular an unknown. He also does pieces on famous rulers and civilizations and gives an overview about 'em. (The Ottoman Empire!)
    History makers: Blue will go over famous figures in history that influenced the world in some way. Like Ibn Khaldun, the first historiographer.
    Summarized: Red goes over famous myths and legends. Started out with Shakespeare and the classics and moved on to miscellaneous myths. (Journey to the West)

    Red's videos generally have a lot of enjoyable sketches to go along with the talk. Blue less so, I think, but still a few.

    I'm sure most folks know of OSP, as they're kinda OGs in Youtube, but hey, maybe someone new will find 'em.

    https://www.youtube.com/c/MakeEverythingTv - A guy trying to recreate every step in technology advancement. I don't agree with all his methods, but its interesting to see the advancement laid out.

    https://www.youtube.com/c/tested - The guy from Myth Busters, he does a array of content. I really like his Tools tips and Shop infrastructure playlists.

    https://www.youtube.com/c/karljobst - While I would find watch people speed run boring as shit, hearing about records and the work behind them is surprisingly interesting.

    https://www.youtube.com/c/crashcourse - I assume most people know this one. Bite sized lessons, I have rewatched their history ones multiple times and actually got rather into literature which I didnt expect.
