In the last year, I started to consume more and more videos from Youtube. I love them because they make many topics exciting and compelling to learn, thanks to their cinematic nature, so here are some channels to follow on YouTube.

In the first place, it is true that social networks like Youtube overflow content: there are so many posts, articles and videos that require our attention that if you try to check them all, you’ll find yourself burned out. There’s simply too much information non the internet. That is why I hope you will appreciate this list of Youtube channels I personally follow and find enriching. If you’re lists I have published are about product management and data.

Their topics range over arts, technology, psychology, productivity, business and science. If you fancy any of those themes, you may be like them.

Disclaimer: I may be “discovering the hot water”, as Italian says when someone says something obvious. In fact, many of them have millions of subscribers and are very famous YouTubers.
