    I only watch Scotty Cranmers videos because the guy is a genius on a BMX, multiple X Games gold medalist and very humble and grateful that he gets to earn a living from the sport.
    Tragically if you don’t know, he had a very bad face plant recently and broke his back. There have been further videos of him in hospital recovering, but he’s still in a wheelchair and has had the front of his skull removed because of a blood clot on the brain.
    If you get ten minutes, watch an old video to see how good he is, then watch a recovery video to see how someone can be so positive and upbeat after having such a life changing accident.

    Today I’ve learnt that Youtube has channels.

    Lesson 2: you can subscribe to those channels and it will tell you when new stuff is posted on them and will also give you recommendations for similar channels you might like.

    I only really watch GMBN The Dirt shed show is a must watch every week.
    In Summer I watch Red Bull’s channel for the World Cup MTB stuff.
    Everything else I watch is a bit random.
    I just watched a great little video with Steve Peat,Guy Martin & Joe Barnes up in Scotland ‘Mojo trail diaries’.
    Most other stuff I watch concerns motorcycle racing or Rugby League.
    I think these days,certainly when the RL season is on,I watch more Youtube than TV

    Scotty Cramner – The inner child in me still likes to watch some BMX vids, good fun content on here daily.

    IFL – Boxing interviews aplenty

    GCN – Really good, sure we all know about it.

    GMBN – Same as above.

    The Game Chasers – Now up to date on the seasons, but great video game show and could imagine it on TV if it wasn’t so niche.

    I use YouTube quite a lot, been really handy for lower league Scottish football highlights, Cyclocross, WSOP shows and plenty more.

    +1Fully charged. Just watching again and have to say it is REALLY nice to see quality production, presentation is engaging as is the content and not hardly a whiff of identity politics. Just watched a Tesla Wall installed and the Renault Electric Show coverage.

    the anti-TG?


    – the slow-mo guys. Because I want to see a 1000 mousetraps go off in slow motion on a trampoline. And stuff.

    – Dave Jenvey. Englishman learning how to mtb. Brummie Balls of steel and nerves of custard. Compelling like a car crash. Ok, bike crash. Lots of.

    – failarmy. Because late night beers after a ride need this.

    – MCQ Bushcraft

    Ed Pratt – the unicycle around the world guy. He makes a great bike travel video – and is a great change from the usual bikepacking dudes.

    Ed Prat seconded. He met up with Chris Beaumont on his World trip.

    Tall Order Webisodes- Bas Keep and friends, amazing bmx rider, did the Walls series and RedBull quartermaster at Revolution Bikepark.


    Harry Main- Another amazing park bmx rider who’s recently getting into mtb. You have to skip around his vlogs about doing his washing and shit though…


    Ali Clarkson Awesome trials rider. In the Drop and Roll team with Danny Mac.


    Ben Cathro- Scottish racer and skills coach. Great insights into racing interspersed with some really cool sections on technique and line choice at world cups etc. Also, just seems a sound geezer.


    Racer TV Beautiful cafe racer and custom motorcycles.

    SmarterEveryDay – general sciencey stuff, explained well. Check out the one where he got invited to see the Mars Rover twin that NASA keep in a shed.
    standupmaths – nerdy maths stuff with a bit of stand-up comedy (about maths). Lots of stuff about the maths behind day-today things.
    Cody’sLab – proper dangerous physics and chemistry experiments done by a self-taught bloke in his garage.
    Veritasium – more science, explained well.
    WranglerStar – Some bloke who lives on and works a big chunk of the arse end of nowhere in the states. He’s a god’n’guns redneck but I’ll forgive him that because 95% of his videos don’t mention either god or guns, and he has a passion for tools, especially antiques. I started watching for his series on building a treehouse, but stayed for the tools.

    Honourable mentions:

    LastWeekTonight – John Oliver
    Physics Girl – more sciencey goodness
    Vsauce , Vsauce2 and Vsauce3 – I’m beginning to see a pattern here…
    and of course colinfurze

    Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast – essentially him having hour long chats with celebrities/comedians using (usually slightly filthy) questions they’ve never been asked before. Had everyone from Fry, Izzard, Coogan, Pegg etc to lesser known.

    This reads like an advert, it ain’t, I just love this series!

    and of course colinfurze

    These days he’s become a bit big time and doesn’t seem to appeal so much for me.
    I loved it when he was just some crazy cat in his shed but now a lot of his inventions are sponsor-led seemingly.
    Mind you, he’s just paying his bills I guess…
