I've recently started getting more engaged with videos on YouTube as there is a lot of good content available (also a lot of bad!). I'm curious what the community here watches regularly?
Those are my main design/business related channels I follow, all of which are great. but also check out:
Ethan and Hila
And thats all I can think of off the top of my head
Vape naysh represent
In no particular order:
Game Grumps - Been hooked to this channel for many years. I really like the synergy between Arin and Dan.
Ahoy - Insightful gaming content.
SciShow - lighthearted science'y stuff.
Crash Course - All sort of interesting courses ranging between biology to gaming.
Inspector Dubplate - Just some good ol' bass music. All sort of cool stuff gets uploaded here. Been following this channel for maaaaany years.
School of Life - "Emotional Education" channel.
DevTips - web design and development. Im so glad this exists in the Youtube space. Hope this kind of format gets more popular in the future.
Hydraulic Press Channel - Finland represent! :D
I could list a thousand but my main go to's are:
Cold Fusion - This Aussie dood is smart as hell and his mini documentaries are super engaging.
Gaming Historian - Well put together mini docs about classic gaming.
Flux - Really cool and smart Israeli designer vlog.
80's Commercial Vault - For when I feel like getting my nostalgia on.
Good idea for this list Andy. Lately I've really been into YouTube as well. So much good stuff out there! ;)
...Cars and Water.
I like watching videos about traveling. I was lucky to find a great list of YouTube travel vlogs https://travelsites.com/travel-channel/ , so I choose some of them. I should say, modern travel vlogers really know how to inspire their followers. Watching this videos, I discover many interesting things about other countries, and easily choose my next travel destinations.

Amazingly in-depth reviews of games and game weaponry with a focus on presentation, reasoning, and history.
Regain all that stuff you forgot from high school through dumb jokes and fun animation.
Car culture + general silliness.
Witty comedy shorts from a consistent troupe. Uploads are few and far between, but I never want to miss one.
Forget TopGear. This duo produces some of the best car profiles anywhere. True art.
Funny reviews of "everyday" vehicles. Narration ranges from high poetics to toilet humor.
Discussion and inspiration of art and design of all kinds. High marks for their work in case studies for various genres, artists, and trends.
Love poems to strange words with stranger, metaphysical meanings. Writing is incredible.

I usually browse YouTube for entertainment purposes, so apologies for nothing design/industry related.
C0nc0rdance - Lucid discussion about science, pseudoscientific claims, and philosophical issues for good measure.
Julia Galef - Insights from and explanations of philosophy, rationality, science, and more.
Thunderf00t - Plain spoken run downs of science and social issues.
yahtzee19 - Drown Outs have officially finished, but Gabe and Yahtzee's conversations always chill me out.
I love that it's all about the food and technique. Plus, he throws down awesome dad jokes.
npr, majestic casual, and jimmy fallon?
I now work there but I swear I was really into The Creator Class videos even before joining. We make videos about art, design, and creator culture.
Matthew Santoro - His knowledge dumps are fun. As the listicle format goes, he's fun.
The New School - Good interviews ad talks.
Epic Meal Time - Because part of me never grew up.
Wes Bos - Great videos to learn development from.
DevTips - Good content. Taught me Jekyll the first time.
BigThink - Tons of great video on interesting topics in a variety of sciences.
Broadly, Vice's women's stories channel.
Hot For Food, vegan channel but not those annoying just eat bananas type of vegans. I'm trying to eat more plant based so it's good inspiration for recipes.
Philip DeFranco is my daily watch.
Also, a big fan of Vox—they make great content about interesting, important topics and just curious information.
Philly D is the man.
Thank you. I was worried none of my fellow DNer's knew of him!
Same - it was concerning not seeing him listed hah!
