Positive, uplifting Youtube channels?

Post by billthecat »

What are your favorite positive, uplifting youtube channels? I just can't take anymore idiot drivers, police chases, crime, politics, apocalypse, gender relations, cringe, natural disasters, etc. I feel like the monkey in the opening scene of 28 Days Later. The few areas I like that I already subscribe to relate to travel, packing, and investing (but that's pretty much said and done), which are better but they are practical and not particularly positive/uplifting. Just looking for suggestions.

Not what you’re asking for, but what about a whole change of medium, like dedicating more time to reading?

As something a bit more active that requires your effort ( vs beaming into you), it might be less stressful and more uplifting simply because it’s active instead of reactive, and you can feel some accomplishment from hitting small milestones, like a few new chapters per day, for example

It's very taste dependent, but I really enjoy:

Baumgartner Restoration
Victoria and Albert Museum
Life in Yakutia
Letters Live

There's a subreddit called ArtisanVideos that can be a good way to find channels if you enjoy videos where people make things, which I do.

Here's a wide range:

Good Mythical Morning : goofy, funny, easy watching. plenty of "seasons", they've been doing it for a decade. If you have younger kids or grandkids, could be something to watch with them.

Wood By Wright : hand tool woodworking. caveat, I know the person who runs this channel but I don't get anything for referring you. Good guy, very informative. But maybe it'd get your interest in a new hobby. He split the channels, 1 is just a no instruction start to finish build, the other has instructions on building.

Not necessarily uplifting but I find them easy to watch, good natured channels.

This thread is worth a look: viewtopic.php?t=273251

As far as uplifting...

There's a lot to be said for Mike Boyd. He's a Scot who picks random skills and films himself learning how to do them. The premise seems kind of thin, but his joy every time he succeeds (even when he set his deck on fire doing it) keeps me coming back. Bonus points for his wife cheering him on (and laughing at him) in the background.

The other one is NPR Music. The main content of the channel is "Tiny Desk" concerts. Before COVID, performers gathered in the NPR Music office, and did concerts for the 30 or so people in the office. Since COVID, it's "Tiny Disk (Home)" concerts, where the performers are being recorded in their own homes or small spaces. A lot of good performances, much of which I probably wouldn't listen to otherwise.
Yes, I’m really that pedantic.

I'm not necessarily sure about "uplifting," but two channels that I enjoy are: 1) Project Farm, which concentrates on automotive, equipment & tool testing and evaluations, and, 2) Mark Felton's historical productions, concentrating especially on military history and WW2

If you enjoy railroading then ccrx 6700 is a very positive channel.

However, I agree with a previous poster that doing something other than watching online videos is probably a better option than any YouTube channel if you're looking to avoid negativity.

Well, if it's uplift you want, SFIA has an entire episode on literal uplift.

ETA: More seriously, YouTube built around showing you things that you are personally very interested in. I linked SFIA because I'm interested in science & futurism, and, yes, he gives you very good reasons to be optimistic about the future. If you're mostly interested in police chases, natural disasters, crime, and politics, well... that's what's going to show up on your feed.

The latest channel I'm thoroughly addicted to? The Charismatic Voice - a professional opera singer offering her first reactions & vocal analysis of various songs (including a lot of heavy metal, which I'd previously never enjoyed; still not my thing, but it gave me a better respect for the craft). I enjoy it so much I joined her Patreon and have become active in their community, and have newfound appreciation for all kinds of music I'd never have been exposed to before. Also, her breaking down one of her own past performances is one of the most adorable & educational things I've ever seen.

OK, I’ll probably get crucified for saying this, but Joe Rogan, as part of the Joe Rogan experience JRE, sometimes has some really interesting guests. For example, David Sinclair from Harvard on longevity or Andrew Huberman from Stanford on Non-Sleep Deep Relaxation NSDR. If you review the JRE 5 to 12 minute video and find it interesting, then you can look up the guest and find their other YouTube videos.

Perhaps it’s my maternal instinct but Leo Kelly, the voluble, earnest and energetic 8 year old reviewer of nonalcoholic Shirley Temple drinks and other comestibles on instagram, known as the Shirley Temple King, keeps my spirits lifted in these difficult times.

Mood lifter qigong by yoqi on YouTube also provides a quick energy lift (provided you do the exercise!) 😃

Not a YouTube channel, so not a great answer maybe, but a podcast I stumbled on that I really enjoy is, "How Did This Get Made".
Basically they watch terrible movies and talk about the ridiculousness of it - good if you like obscure movies and comedy.

In general, I don't understand all the YouTube watching, it is easy to be a time sink (which can be a bit depressing in and of itself).

I have a weird hodge podge of YouTube channels that I follow. Some that you may not have come across that might fit the bill are townsends which has videos on 18th century life, smarter every day which covers scientific topics, cowboy Kent Rollins which is a southern cooking channel, chef billy parisi (more cooking), thecrafsman (variety of arts/crafts projects), Max Lucado (Christian author so maybe not your thing but I find him positive and uplifting).

Pentatonix - a five person A Capella group. They are fascinating. Mesmerizing. Beautifully harmonizing. Positive and uplifting.

I believe they have a YouTube channel (I believe they have 29 million subscribers). But I simply do a search on YouTube for their videos. If you've never heard of them or watched their videos I highly recommend them.

Ten years ago they won an a capella television competition called "Sing Off". At the time the core 3 of their group were 19 years old and met in the same high school in Texas. All 10-12 of those "Sing Off" performances are on YouTube. Since then might I suggest:

Hallelujah
The Sound of Silence
Bohemian Rhapsody
The Prayer
Daft Punk
Gold (Kiiara cover)
Come Along
Shallow (from A Star is Born)
Say Something

And if you do check them out I've seen it recommended that you listen with a good pair of headphones. Oh. And they've won three Grammys.

I discovered The Charismatic Voice through her review of a Pentatonix song (A group I recommended below). Then I went on to other songs and other groups. And other reviewers. Or possibly they call themselves reactors. As they're creating videos of their reactions to various songs/groups. They are pretty fun and interesting.

I watch a variety of programs from Singapore and Malaysia including:

Jinnyboy TV - Does some of the finest short films (Watch The Rose as it is his best)
Wah! Banana - short videos from Singapore
Life Where I am From - Japanese-Canadian family living in Japan - lots of good culture
Tree Potatoes - short videos from Singapore
Dan Khoo Productions

All of these are MOSTLY in English.

The problem that I see with some of these smaller producers is that they start the channel while in University and drop them when they graduate and start their career.

The problem with YouTube is that when you click on a few of the videos on the topics mentioned by the OP, that is all that you start getting. Honestly, YouTube would much rather have you clicking on CNN/Fox videos than some fishing videos from Laos or Cambodia.

Stacked Golf is my favorite.

I follow most of my favorite music artists. Music and performances are usually positive.

Bigdawstv and mrbeast have some positive videos giving big donations.

What I love about TCV is the level of analysis she provides, and not just the reaction (though her enthusiastic reactions are admittedly a huge part of her appeal). I've learned so much about music in general from listening to her break down vocal technique and what's actually happening during a performance. I've watched other reaction videos, and while they can be fun, very few of them go into the technical details the way she does. I'm really not into metal, and I never had any interest in opera, but I have a newfound appreciation for both as a result of the channel. There are a few other 'reaction' channels that I quite enjoy because they do far more than just 'reactions' (Wings of Pegasus for his guitar analysis, and his breakdowns on the blatant overuse of autotune; Beth Roars for her videos on music history and theory). TCV is easily my favorite, though. Her interview series is fantastic - it's really obvious that her guests see her as a peer and are much more at ease opening to her than with a reporter.

I love videos about saving animals. There are hundreds of them and they mostly make me smile or cry. Sometimes I get angry (at the beginning) at the previous owners/humans for animal abuse, but I know it's going to end well (or it wouldn't be a Youtube video) so it's fairly safe to watch.

Actually, be very careful with those. There's a whole scandal about how many of those channels are fake and created by people in third-world countries who abuse the same animals over and over again across many videos and channels in order to fake rescuing them for the ad revenue. If you search something along the lines of "fake animal rescue videos" on YouTube, you'll find videos of people going through lots of evidence of this happening.

Sadly, a similar thing is somewhat true of my recommendation. We recently had our first child, so in preparation, I watched a lot of channels and videos focused on parenting young children. Unfortunately, there is also somewhat of a rabbit hole when it comes to parents abusing/exploiting children for monetary gain. If you can avoid those controversial cases, it's actually quite inspiring to see how many new parents care for their children from birth through the toddler years. I do cringe at the commercial nature of how these channels are sponsored by all kinds of baby product lines as well as other products and services targeted at young parents, but again, if you just ignore that aspect, it's cool to see the kids grow up. I intended to quit watching all of those videos once our child was born, but I just couldn't help myself when it came to one channel in particular. Any time I get a notification of a new video from them, I'm just legitimately curious how their kids are doing, almost like they're friends or neighbors or something. My wife makes fun of me by saying I should spend more time caring about our kid and less about theirs.

Oh, this made me think of something I trip over every now and then and really enjoy - the Charismatic Voice.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK5G-r ... eMkrL7Bs1w

She is some sort of classical singer and coach, but she breaks down lots of rock / metal stuff on the vocal and song quality. Really fun - you can get sucked into a 30-60 minute session if you're not careful.

My two most watched are very different from each other.

Someone else mentioned it, but Good Mythical Morning is my most watched channel. I am not a 10 year old boy, but watching them and their humor brings out my 10 year old boy humor https://www.youtube.com/GoodMythicalMorning

A new favorite is a vlogger from Svaldbarg, a remote island above Norway and she vlogs her life living in this remote area. Her photography of the region is gorgeous and she has a really calming and encouraging vibe. They like to take boat and snowmobile trips with beautiful scenery included. https://www.youtube.com/c/CeciliaBlomdahl

I got hooked on Charlie McDonnell back in 2011. His channel has been more or less dormant for three years but his old videos still get lots of views. He started as a bored 16 year old making videos from his bedroom in Bath, England. I suppose he is about 30 now. Still like the old videos, they were quite good.

Just looked it up, Charlieissocoollike is 31 years old. My the years have flown by.

This Old Tony
Home shop stuff. Funny "dad jokes" and great production value. If you are a DIYer, you can learn things too.

James Popsys
Pointers on landscape photography. Self-deprecating humor, great landscapes, helpful for newer outdoor photographers.

Leigh - The Snap Chick.
I find her uplifting. Easy going advice. Good photography pointers. Good equipment reviews.

Special books by special kids
This is definitely worth a look. I think this guy is in it for the right reasons. I've learned quite a lot about special needs kids of all kinds. (My niece has CP, which is what started me watching this channel.) The spirit of these kids (and young adults) is inspiring. Start from the beginning.

Tech ingredients
Picture a favorite teacher from way back, doing fun experiments in an entertaining and well-presented format. Anything from making rocket engines to distilling whiskey.

Clickspring
The epitome of a craftsman. His work methods are beautiful to watch and the videos are well narrated and somehow calming. The results are stunning.

Wintergaten
Musician/maker. Created a couple of versions of a marble-based music machine. Incredible. He is a talented and creative person that is fun to watch.

Ana Vidivoc - Classical guitar. I end up listening to one of her concerts quite often. - Also, Omni foundation in general.

Mark Rober, mentioned above, is a fun watch too. The squirrel obstacle course is a good one.
