Youtube is the new TV, or even better, the audiovisual version of blogs. There are hundreds of thousands of people creating all kinds of content about many different topics, and some of them are amazing.
In the third part of The Summer Series, I share some of my favourite Youtube channels. The list doesn’t include anything too specific or complicated, and I believe they can be interesting for most of you.
The list includes a short description, a featured video and a list of other 3 of my favourite videos of each channel.
Vsauce is the channel of Michael Stevens and it’s probably my favourite youtube channel. It mixes science, interesting facts, history and many other topics dressed with Michael’s sharp humour and charisma.
Richard Wiseman, a psychologist, author and magician posts short videos in Quirkology about psychology, illusions, magic, and the impossible.
4. Primitive technology
I discovered Primitive technology a few months ago and I got immediately hooked on it. The guy behind the channel builds tools, objects and buildings in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials.
5. Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
In a Nutshell (also known as Kurzgesagt) is an educational and entertaining channel where they explain complex and interesting concepts using animations. Topics include evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
In LAHWF (Losing All Hope Was Freedom) Andrew Hales publishes awkward and social experiment videos. I can’t stop laughing with some of them.
7. People are Awesome
You may have seen one of the People are Awesome’s videos since they become viral every now and then. They publish compilations of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Those videos are purely entertaining and somehow hypnotic. It’s just amazing what humans are capable of.
