Recommend Your Favorite YouTube Videos/Channels

I thought that there might be some interest from RFDers in posting/discussing Fav YouTube content. New or Old. Let's see.
There is just so much available, these days, that it can be hard to weed through the choices,
so maybe someone posting something unique, unusual or just wacked out, will take you into something that you never would have considered.



Here are some recc's to start. Just a few things that interest me or that I like.

Personally, I am fascinated by the Michael Franzese Channel. The inside details he has of mafia life.
Michael Franzese was a Capo of the Colombo crime family, and son of former underboss John (Sonny) Franzese, who was sentenced to 50 years in prison.
Michael Franzese reportedly made hundreds of millions of dollars, in a massive gas tax evasion scheme, and did 5 years, and then did the unthinkable. He walked away from the mafia, and lived to tell about it.
Then even stranger he got married, found Jesus and became an evangelist and life coach of sorts.

Short weekly videos on astrophysics with Host Matt O’Dowd

Disturbed cover of: The Sound Of Silence

I have to give a big shout out to Harry Mack, probably the best freestyle rapper I've ever heard. Harry is such a positive, intelligent, funny and awesome person to boot. Check it out:

Here's a recent Omegle Bars video where he freestyles for random people on chat:


Or one of my other favourite series of his, Guerrilla Bars, where he freestyles for random people on the street:

Thanks for the recs. Maybe just me, but it took me a couple of minutes to realize that they were three seperate channels, not one search string. Hadn't seen any of them though.

Also liking Sammy The Bull Gravano's channel.

He was John Gotti's under boss in the Gambino Mafia family.
The dude is in his 70's now, but tells it like it was, and doesn't mind admitting to crimes unapologetically.

Thanks. Like all his stuff too. The one that I found fascinating, was the episode where he sits down with his daughters and they just talk about how his lifestyle and being in prison for a long stretch affected them.

I have been fascinated with these types of videos and their portrayal of real mobsters and their lives. Keep it coming if you have something new.
