RIP YouTube Channel
My YouTube Channel! Mostly in Italian Language, about everything, low quality… but it also has some flaws! Plus, I went Live on May 2021 for 2 hours where I explored all the youTube Channels I follow (video in Italian Language)
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.
Already mentioned in the Podcasts page: Afford Anything, Mad FIentist.
CGP Grey – Curiosity at its best. Pure awesomeness. Take a look at Humans Need not Apply, Yearly Themes, and Rules for Rulers, Lockdown Productivity, and The Fable of the Dragon-Tyrant.
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]).
Crash Course – Green brothers’ channel/project on Education. Probably the best channel on Education, along with Khan Academy. A collection of courses on both scientific and humanistic disciplines.
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.
After Skool – graphic animations over famous speeches by amazing people. I discovered Alan Watts thanks to After Skool.
Thoughty2 – Arran Lomas’ channel will sprinkle your curiosity. Memorable his video on why modern music is so awful, and then more recent one on why modern movies suck.
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!
Breaking Italy (Italian) – Alessandro Masala’s channel, about politics and more. My favorite Italian channel, even though…
Roberto Mercadini (Italian) – Best Italian storyteller. Former software engineer turned theater actor and writer.
Wesa Channel (Italian) – an Italian philosopher with a brilliant mind.
Kurzgesagt – Best science (and more) channel. Animated videos, and a narrator voice. Based on a lot of research and interviews with experts.
Veritasium – Incredible videos on science, and meta science. For example this, this, and this (and this one, about his story, would make you, FIRE/Freedom seeker, cheers)
3Blue1Brown – The best math channel on YT. Take a look at Grant’s Lockdown Math series. 12 hours, and you can skip 5 years of high school math.
Domain of Science – I loved his “The Map of” series.
Numberphile – maybe the best recreational math channel ever!
MinuteEarth / MinutePhysics – short animated videos explaining complex stuffs in simple terms. Addictive.
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.
Relaxing / Focus Music
List of music channels I use to improve my focus and do deep work.
Jake Chudnow – soundtrack of VSauce videos.
Epic Mountain – soundtrack of Kurzgesagt videos.
Marconi Unions – ten hours of weightless and they would need to club you to interrupt your deep work session.
Gravity Sound – free to use audio library. Free to use music and SFX for your projects.
Kaki King – amazing guitar player with a special story. She collected the money for her first album as a street performer.
Cat Trumpet – collection of live relaxing music, including Studio Ghibli Music 24/7.
