I think that this is the only video blog (vlog) that I actually follow. It’s a bit of a hit-and-miss at times, but there is some interesting content on Vlogbrothers.
This channel is run by Hank and John Green, who are fairly famous YouTubers that host a number of educational YouTube channels, many which I have featured on my blog here, such as Mental Floss and SciShow. The channel mostly acts as a video blog, where each of the brothers post a video about once a week.
Some of the content on Vlogbrothers is not that good. However, once in a while, someone posts an absolutely fantastic video. These two individuals are intelligent, open-minded and interested in the world around them. They are thinkers and watching their vlogs provides some interesting insight into how they see the world – something that interests me greatly.
This channel might not be for everyone. I can say with certainty that I do not like all the videos on this channel. But once in a while, they upload a little gem of a video that reminds me why I subscribed to this channel in the first place. A video that keeps me thinking for the rest of the week. Those videos truly make subscribing worthwhile. I’ll list some of them out below. This is, by no means, a comprehensive list, but it should give you a taste of some of the better content:
- The Time a Taxi Driver Stole My Money
- Redefining What it Means to Matter
- Thoughts from Yachts
- Some Rough Advice for the “Real World”
If you liked any of the above videos, it’s worth subscribing to the channel. They occasionally post interesting content like that. Videos come out twice a week, one for each brother. It won’t clog up your subscriptions box, and you might find some fairly interesting videos on there too.
