    Default Your favorite Youtube Channels

    Hi,

    Trying out a new thread, perhaps it's too general but here we go.
    List out your favorite youtube channels. Please leave some kind of commentary so we can understand how you see those channels (whether it's news, entertainment and anything else you see as relevant)

    Feel free to comment on other people's favorite channels - just stay courteous : )

    I'll start with my most watched YOUTUBE news and related channels.

    On the left:
    Sargon of Akkad for example does a good job deconstructing media narratives.
    Sargon of Akkad
    - YouTube


    Philosophy and politics
    Stefan Molyneux despite seeming to model himself on ancient philosophers (and the cult following they used to have) has some good points as well.

    - YouTube


    on the right + comedy
    Steven Crowder
    StevenCrowder
    - YouTube


    Discussions about politics from a classical liberal perspective:
    The Rubin Report

    Expression of the post modern paradox : "For the love of god, religions are so full of shit"

    Theory is always superseded by Fact...
    ... In theory.

    I think I'd really better refrain from commenting on that. Uh. List.

    I watch stuff semi-regularly. The only things I watched regularly on Youtube include:

    Comedy:
    • Would I Lie To You (All seasons)
    • Big Fat Quiz of the Year
    • Father Ted
    • The IT Crowd
    • Black Books
    • Monty Python ...Etc

    ...I'd once marathoned the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, but that was many years ago.

    For actual academic shit, TED talks are generally very good, and any popular university lectures tend to be decent.

    Gaming/Lifestyle -
    I only watch Life Of Boris and SovietWomble. Sovietwomble's clan is hilarious and it's like watching the Hindenberg, but funny. Boris is a good lifestyle channel focused on entertaining rather than actually delivering insights about gaming.

    For political stuff:
    Stephen Colbert actually makes some sense given the trainwreck that is American politics.

    Now if you have different preferences feel free to share and I'd be happy to check them out.

    If you feel like giving me baseless ad hominem arguments I'll be happy to utterly destroy you in a debate.

    Which one is it going to be ?
    Pass.

    Not how it works, you're supposed to give arguments. You haven't. You just did the equivalent of saying "I can't eveeenn".

    Now of course I would prefer you share some of your favorite channels.

    I just randomly look shit up. I follow a few channels but it's pointless cuz I don't really pay attention.

    That would be a good use of my time though...
