Well this went nowhere, but I'm determined to share some of my subs (with links to good starting points). :)



Make me giggle
-AirForceProud95, the ultimate in flight simulator realism!
-BardicBroadcasts, you haven't seen a board game reviewed ultil you've seen a Bardic Broadcast!
-TwoSetViolin, two dudes having way too much fun playing violin.
-Jeb Gardener, classical music, hydroponic gardens and a weird guy growing stuff in his office.

Bingeable builders
-Bad Obsession Motorsport, one of the most thorough, ambitious and tea-fueled Mini restorations ever undertaken. Project Binky is a must watch!
-Clickspring, there's just something soothing about watching this guy masterfully make stuff in his shop. The skeleton clock series is a great place to start!
-Hand Tool Rescue, watch weird old tools get restored to good working order. Also soothing.
-Matthias Wandel, a clever guy in his basement makes tools, and makes things with the tools he makes.
-Primitive Technology, a guy in the jungle makes huts and other things and it's surprisingly cool to watch.
-Tips from a Ship Wright, a little slow paced probably for most and not a lot of entertainment value, but he builds some neat boats and is really thorough.

Solid regular content
-Chris Fix, you will definitely think about trying to fix your car after watching this guys excellent how-to videos
-EVNautilus, just the weirdest stuff ever from the bottom of the ocean... the next best thing to being a marine biologist is listening to them ooh and aah over strange ocean life.
-Bon Appetite, just a good fun variety of cooking content. Well produced.
-Mustard, fascinating short documentaries on the history of various prototype planes and trains
-Summoning Salt, fun to watch recaps of the world fastest completion records for various games.

Sorry, but I do not subscribe to anything on YouTube. Just do not get the time. I struggle to keep up (well actually I do not keep up) with Netflix, Stan, Hulu, SBS On-Demand, and Kanopy. YouTube I go to to find a specific video, then may be look at something in the suggested list connected to the video, but usually, just leave after watching the thing I went there for.

I watched the first 2 free episodes of Cobra Kai on YouTube but I couldn’t justify paying to complete the badness

Do you guys have cable or whatever? I find that's the hole it fills for me. When you're not up for a show or movie, but you're also not ready to go to sleep either. :))

Nope. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime. Plus I download a lot of stuff (mostly non-US cooking/baking shows)

Not really. Haven’t had cable or home phone in 15 years. I don’t like the idea just to turn on anything to fill a hole. Even in hotels I won’t turn on a tv most of the time

Nope, I pretty much do not watch TV, just stuff on the streaming services. The kids watch a little broadcast TV, that's it. Cable TV is not that big in Australia (compared to the USA).
