Anyone got any youtube channel's they can recommend? looking for thing's similar to the below.
some of my subscriptions:
AtheistMediaBlog - general religion vs. atheism related media stories
C0ct0pusPrime - commentary on rightwing american media
OldDubDomain - old dub tracks[
TheCCC420](http://www.youtube.com/user/TheCCC420) - series by some dudes who srsly know their green
TheClash57 - punk tracks, mostly new
- science pwnage
mostly american, anyone know any uk stuff?
Not a subscription but Youtube Leanback is good for a giggle sometimes if you haven't already checked it out and can cope with the somewhat, er, eclectic mix of vids: http://www.youtube.com/leanback
tooltime9901 - philosophy and religion. Still American.
I'm subscribed to Pat Condell, but to be honest I think he is a bit of a one trick pony, I got bored quickly and I think I'm going to unsubscribe if he doesn't do somthing interesting soon.
Bumping this. After recommendations of any good channels that aren't too heavy on pushing brands or clickbait stuff. Anyone?
Colin Furze for dicking about making rad stuff in a shed.
It's a bit geeky, but I find Plasmo really relaxing to watch. He makes making airfix kits look really easy.
Also My Mechanics for tool restoration.
I'm aware that both of these sound really odd viewing.
I'm totally obsessed with Steve1989MREinfo at the moment
I've no interest in military rations really but for some reason his opening and tasting of decades and older rations is so entertaining and weirdly soothing
General idea of interests would be useful! I like restoration stuff, people who get knackered old stuff and take you through the whole process of making it shiny again. Very satisfying. 'Odd Tinkering' and 'My Mechanics' are good for this.
Woby Design makes cool stuff out of recycled skateboards, and edits his videos really well.
Ha ditto the recommendation
Rebbeca and paul disused station or martin zero doing history/urban stuff about manchester . Silver fox barge travels are quite relaxing as the only go the speed if the barge .! The grand union canal into Birmingham under the motorway network was interesting.
Cooking related: Sorted food. Bunch of London chaps exploring food in/around London. Good antidote to slick and polished tv cooking shows. Think more GBBO than Masterchef.
I follow Woby as well :) although I'm always a slightly frustrated thinking how much prep time is involved in turning the skateboards into something usable!
He doesn't upload all that often but this guy's done two series that are really worth a watch and he's planning more. A trip across Europe with a mate spending as little as possible and using as many types of transport as possible. There's loads of similar stuff on Youtube but his personality and commentary over the videos really carry it:
We have been enjoying the Martin Zero videos over the past month, with not many remaining to watch now. He's obviously passionate about his local area and the history behind it.
Steeplejacking and Steam engines-
The series about the man attempting to cross Wales in a straight line is excellent.
+1 have watched this series through twice now. Really great stuff.
Also Trenton and Heath are a pair of US cobblers who do impressive and very watchable boot/shoe re-soles and repairs. I should probably get out more.
Another vote for My Mechanics from me:
Not a million miles away is a furniture-maker someone on the crafting thread (i think) linked to not long ago:
Last one is a Canadian guy who built a cabin in the woods, and ended up moving in for good:
Was initially looking for cycling-related YouTubers, but the links here are good to dig into!
I'm into guitars, luthiery and watching old men talk about it:
Silver foxes, martin zero, trenton heath, isn't it odd that just a few recommendations on here that I already view.
I do a few farming ones, building ones, travel...
Foresty Forest, lives out of his van and walks, fatbikes in the Canadian Rockies
Andrew Camarata, Civil engineer and builds container building up state new york
Welker Farms, Big Bud enthusiasts and arable farmers
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
