    Post Cool & Educational Ytube Channels ITC

    some of mine:

    GrayStillPlays
    This guy basically just posts videos from the game Universe Sandbox 2, which is this incredible simulation of space & time, in a game. He mainly just jerks around making planets and stars bigger and smaller, and creating black holes and sticking them in random places in the solar system. It is actually incredibly fascinating and I would love the play this game myself, but this is for like, the top 1% of gaming computers not fucking chromebooks

    a good place to start :

    Geography Now
    This channel (starting from A and progressing through the alphabet) does extremely detailed profiles on every country on the globe. Focusing firstly on physical geography, political geography, the people, history, famous dishes and people and then their diplomatic allies. It may sound pretty dry but as this guy progressed, his videos get more and more enjoyable and less of a dull homework assignment.

    a good place to start (the first letters are a little more basic)

    Wendover Productions
    Wendover is basically the daddy of socio-geographic/political channels, while I suspect that a lot of the content here is sort of slanted in a particular direction politically, these videos seem extremely well researched, and make quite complicated issues seem fairly easy to understand.

    Lessons From The Screenplay
    If you're a budding film buff or just love seeing movies examined, this channel really does cover so many bases and takes an extremely close look at the scripts which films are based around. Not just looking at big blockbuster films but also some of the smaller independent films, as well as looking at direction, pacing, writing and everything else a lot of casual viewers don't really notice, it definitely changes the way I have viewed films recently. The only major frustration is how long it takes for these videos to get made (not a suprise as easy video is jam packed with research, and is really presented in a visually engaging way)

    Nerdwriter1
    I feel like if you have even the slightest interest in any kind of media whatsoever, you've had Nerdwriter in your suggestions a few times. This guy doesn't just focus on film and music, but poetry, novels, politics and celebrity, taking a close look at what attracts him to a specific topic or release. This guy does everything the last guy does, but spreads it out over a bigger range of topics and makes me interested in things I never thought I was (Emily Dickinson poetry for one) honestly one of the best channels going

    Indigo Traveler
    As a geography enthusiast and as someone who hates travelling but would love to visit some of the least worn roads on the tourist map, this channel is brilliant for the vicarious adventurer who is too pussy to just book a flight to some random country and take a massive camera with them. This guys whole mantra is "this is what the western media told you, and this is what its actually like. He does have this annoyingly smug kind of attitude about it, like yeah I guess most of my preconceptions are built on lies and fake news but I think most of us know that? I dunno, but he seems to travel to places where no-one would think of, and talks to the locals in an honest way about their lives which doesn't come across as patronizing. I also love Bald and Bankrupt for doing similar things, but this guy I would say has done more to change people's preconceptions than any other traveller on ytube

    Tommy Edison has one of the most likable personalities you can find. Not just on YouTube, but in general. This channel has taught me so much about how blind people live and do day-to-day stuff. It's incredibly fascinating. It's also paired with his charming dry humor. Can't recommend him enough.

    Linguistics nerds may enjoy:

    NativLang:
    https://www.youtube.com/user/NativLang

    Langfocus:
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNh...raW3VHPyup8jkQ

    Langfocus is more about modern languages and dialects (he makes use of native speakers to give you a sense of the grammar and sound of a language), NativLang delves into ancient languages and historical linguistics. It's all interesting to me.

    This is a bit of a cheat since I don't really consider it an "educational" channel (besides occasional videos talking about filmmaking), but I had to share this video somewhere since it blew me away. This was truly eyeopening stuff. I had no idea Chris went through something like this, and it fascinated me every second (only thing he could have done was trim some clips down a little). This made me respect him more than I did before. A true inspiration to others being stuck in a cult/religion condemning them for who they are.
