Channel recommendation dump (some don't just deal with one media and some hardly ever update)

Politics
Timbah.On.Toast
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5G1ThclVYLp2YFQUodTNnA

Timbah is so under-appreciated. His videos are super well-researched, well-edited, and have great music.

New Media:

Jarvis Johnson - His videos have recently gotten a little more in interested in politics, but he has some quite good vids on the algorithm and a lot of stuff making fun of content farms.
https://www.youtube.com/user/VSympathyV

D'Angelo Wallace - Actually explains Youtube drama in a way that makes sense. Long vids, but his editing is good.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqWxviU8cjjHZsTLWgPFZuA

Chemistry:

NileRed - Very nicely produced, very educational videos on chemistry.
https://www.youtube.com/user/TheRedNile

Cody'sLab - A true aesthetic.
https://www.youtube.com/user/theCodyReeder

Explosions & Fire / Extractions & Ire - Memes and swearing. Has a neat series on E&I going on about making cubane!
https://www.youtube.com/c/ExplosionsFire2
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvFApMFo_AafXbHRyEJefjA

Cooking:

Emmymadeinjapan: In Rhode Island, actually. Just a very pleasant person to watch when you want to calm down.
https://www.youtube.com/emmy

Music:

12tone: Explains music theory by doodling on sheet music paper.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTUtqcDkzw7bisadh6AOx5w

What?

Brian David Gilbert's personal channel: Skits and music.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCakAg8hC_RFJm4RI3DlD7SA

E: Video games!

Retro Game Mechanics Explained: Detailed explanations of how older games were programmed. Once did a stream where he decompressed a Pokemon sprite by hand to support The Bail Project.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwRqWnW5ZkVaP_lZF7caZ-g

More actual reviewers/commentators:
Politics/Media:

Big Joel: Much in the vein of Philosophy Tube but more media-driven. Started out doing movie stuff and gradually moved to politics, though I think his expertise is actually in literature? I really liked his Jordan Peterson video.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaN8DZdc8EHo5y1LsQWMiig

Reviewing literally anything and everything:
Swell Entertainment: Are you curious about what any given...thing you may have seen on the Internet is like? Also recently did an hour interview with annoying PUA Russell Hartley, for which she deserves a medal or hospitalization.

Since we're doing the listicles I'll put in a pitch for creators I enjoy but never mention. And apparently I post a lot for someone who basically never recommends anything.

Media
MovieBitches does fun run downs of old classic or not-so-classic movies, as well as an exhaustive amount of Drag Race content

What's So Great About That? is more of what I think of as this thread's bread-and-butter video essay around media and art, but I like the presentation a lot and, as the name suggest, it tends towards trying to find positives.

Captain Disillusion isn't one I think people are unaware of, but he's worth mentioning because his content is just that good.

DaThings is just good old-school poop content.

Ryxn is just good new-school poop content.

Games
Indeimaus I mentioned in the final days of the last thread, but I enjoy his playthroughs of games because I feel like he does a good job of getting across the entire game in a relatively quick format while also leaving enough of the game out that you'd still enjoy playing it yourself.

Alpha Beta Gamer previews a lot of low-budget and experimental games, often with a focus on horror.

Juno Birch is simply the best Sims player on youtube.

Stuff
Crime Pays But Botany Doesn't is a, let's say, specific style of nature walkabout that I've followed for a while but was particularly comforting during my lockdown in an inner-city apartment.

Alliterative does videos on what they refer to as "surprising etymological connections" but at the end of the video it zooms out to show you all the topics covered and you realise it's a conspiracy board of trivia derails that's gone from colours to chocolate to dogs to beowulf to roman legions.

Cracking the Cryptic is literally just having a sudoku puzzle narrated to you.

In an ongoing effort to find videos that validate all my preconceived notions, I really dig this review of Birds of Prey:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WtsemKE8Rw

(lol at the "Idiocracy.... was a documentary!!" thing at the start though). I'll go one step further with it though: coldcrashpictures says that Roman wears a mask just because he can, but I think it speaks more to his desire to appropriate anything he thinks is neat or cool for the shallowest reasons possible. Like how all his goons later on are wearing random tribal masks, too

Iíve been mildly disappointed with the sequel so far because while the first one was a legit speculative science fiction novella that also happened to include ridiculous football and comedy the second is mostly just the ridiculous football and comedy. Itís still pretty funny and the amount of thought put into the location quirks of the football fields and personality of the teams is fantastic but itís just missing that special something that made 17776 so much more.

Still worth reading and his videos, as infrequent as the new ones are, is a great catalogue.
