Here are my favorite YouTube channels at this writing, with many but not all focused on vintage technology. Lots of nerdy guys here!
The first three I love so much that I send them monthly funding via Patreon:
TechMoan – wonderful look at vintage consumer home entertainment devices brought back to life, along with some new gadgets, with Mat in Scotland; I am so happy when a segment ends with the muppets! Here’s Mat’s website and his Patreon page.
- Technology Connections – great series on the history of audio and video recording technology and more; like me, Alec loved Tim Hunkin’s Secret Life of Machines series; here’s Alec’s website and his Patreon page.
- Bright Sun Films – Jake Williams is a young fellow who explores abandoned sites, failed projects, and more; here’s the website and the Patreon page.
- EngineerGuy – well-produced segments by Bill Hammack on engineering concepts; here’s Bill’s website.
- Filmmaker IQ – top-notch segments with John P. Hess explaining the technology of movie productions, both historical and present; here’s the online film school website.
- Nerdwriter – thoughtful and philosophical weekly segments by Evan Puschak about almost anything; here’s Evan’s website and his Patreon page.
