Personal Finance / FIRE / Investing
Ben Felix – Common Sense Investing – The best channel about investing on YT. Ben destroys all false myths, like active investing, dividend irrelevance, the 4% rule for early retiree… and he has a scientific approach, quoting papers and doing math. Make yourself a favor, binge watch all his videos. Then I’ll tell you which one to re-watch 3-4 times to not let their message leave your head.
The Plain Bagel – Another Canadian CFA (Richard Coffin) with an awesome channel about investing, and explaining things in a funny and simple way.
The Compound – RWM official YT channel, featuring Josh Brown, Barry Ritholtz, Ben Carlson, Michael Batnick and many guests. I love the “What are your Thoughts” series with Josh and Michael.
VSauce / Mind Field / D!NG – All creatures of Michael Stevens. Curiosity, science, fun, education. I would love to link some videos but I can’t just select 3, 4, or 5 of them, I’d love to link them all. Ok, start with this, this and this (and this [and this]).
The School of Life – Alain De Botton’s School of Life is the most popular YT channel on psychology. I used to watch it a lot.
Fight Mediocrity – first YT channel on animated nonfiction book reviews. Transformed into something different after a long pause. Still an amazing channel.
Steve Cutts – Sad, dystopian, realistic videos.
Thomas Frank – productivity for millennials. Good quality. But for millennials.
Coffeezilla – Fake Gurus exposed!
Mike Winnet – Contrepreneurs exposed!
Spencer Cornelia – Online Scam, Fake Gurus, Charlatans exposed!
Wesa Channel (Italian) – an Italian philosopher with a brilliant mind.
Marco Montemagno (Italian) – productivity and marketing for Italians. Italians and Millennials. Interesting the “4 chiacchiere con” series.
Kurzgesagt – Best science (and more) channel. Animated videos, and a narrator voice. Based on a lot of research and interviews with experts.
Numberphile – maybe the best recreational math channel ever!
PBS Space Time – Astrophysics, and a lot of mental speculation.
Link4universe (Italian) – Adrian Fartade’s YT channel about space and space exploration.
Entropy for Life (Italian) – biology from an Italian biologist.
Casually Explained – seemingly serious things explained in the funniest but detached way possible.
Wendover Productions – incredibly informative videos almost only about airplanes. It’s crazy how many different videos you can make about this topic. It makes me think that creativity in unlimited.
Half as Interesting – second channel of the amazing Wendover Production. Funny stories, usually about geography and geopolitics.
Real Life Lore – another crazy and funny channel about answers to weird questions.
Jelle’s Marble Runs – Marbles races. I didn’t know it was a thing. Now I’m addicted!
Vlogbrothers – Green brothers founded the internet. You can’t not love them.
TechLead – Sometimes I hate him, sometimes I love him. It doesn’t go unnoticed.
Scream Fest – I have a minor passion for horror movies. This is a channel about short horror videos.
The Rankings – addictive channel with time series about everything.
The Jackal (Italian) – Probably the funniest Italian channel on YT.
Yotobi (Italian) – honorable mention to one of the first Italian YT channel.
Cartoni Morti (Italian) – Funny memes and mocking of politicians and more.
Scottecs (Italian) – Animated funny stories. Makes kids laugh. Makes adults laugh.
