I watch a lot of youtube. Not as much as I used to since high quality, well-researched content has been disincentivized by the platform in favour of whatever will provoke the most reactions while still being advertiser and family-friendly. That doesn't mean there isn't plenty to watch anymore though. There's still loads of great and interesting creators out there, many of them only having small followings. Here's a few I've found.
Channels with more than 200k subs are excluded from this list since they probably don't need my shoutout. Those who have less than 10k subs will have a next to their name, I doubly recommend you check them out.
