The History Guy has some really interesting short (5-15 minutes each) videos about all sorts of events and topics. His voice can be a little difficult to get used to, but I think his presentation is very good.

He leans a little heavy into the military for my tastes. Especially as he always feels the need to genuflect over their sacrifice and service. But I like his other stuff.

Alone on the Ice: The Best Survival Story You've Never Heard

This video has presenter David Roberts telling the story of Douglas Mawson expedition in Antarctica. It is astonishing and also FUCKING BRUTAL, especially the part about the ship.

(I did giggle at the part in his Wikipedia article that, "At the time of his death [in 1958] he had still not completed editorial work on all the papers resulting from his expedition [in 1913]." Shoutout from one procrastinator to another)

Really interesting interview with Bernie's former press secretary who says Progressives shouldn't have to settle for Biden just because he's Not Trump.

I had to watch it twice because I spent the first time wondering if Moynihan was wearing clamdiggers.

Tangent, if you put the youtube link inside [ url ] tags, it works fine (as a link, not an embed) without being broken.
