Main Question or Discussion Point

I assume there are resource lists on the forum that mention Science and Math experts on YouTube. What about experts in other fields? My favorites are in the building trades since I'm currently fixing up a house.

Plumber Steve Lavimoniere: https://www.youtube.com/user/stevenlavimoniere
Stucco Maven Kirk Giordano: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ1wkNnjD06gYLeDFRW7hNQ
Shower expert Bob Doyle: https://www.youtube.com/user/StarrTile
Custom home builder Matt Risinger: https://www.youtube.com/user/MattRisinger
Drywall expert Vancouver Carpenter: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbZdXox6mKHdcT2QdVT-goQ

They can be indivdualistic and irritating as well as informative!

Is economics too protean a subject to be classed as a true science? Do you permit social science channels to be entered?
 
Wireless Philosophy would have to be my favourite channel excluding all those related to scientific or mathematical disciplines. Other philosophy youtube channels include:
Philosophy Tube
Crash Course Philosophy
The School of Life
Philosophy Insights

For the history of firearms, I find Othias entertaining: https://www.youtube.com/candrsenal but the flood of details exceeds my ambition to remember them.
Thanks. Old firearm channels since the subject is established tend to focus on the narrator. Highly entertaining, often instructive; archived thanks to video.

My shooting style resembles Harrell's; from a similar era, at least. Harrell instructs in clear sentences loaded with data; often numeric chronograph readings shouted above wind and range sounds. Not a gun store or merchandiser. True expert.

In a somewhat similar vein, I'm a real fan of Mustie1, who posts videos of repairing engines of virtually all kinds. In a fairly recent video, he acquired a marine inboard boat engine that was manufactured in about 1905. It had sat in a marine museum for a long time in a non-running state, and they were cleaning house, so he wound up with it, I'm amazed that he can take a car, boat, chainsaw, weedwhacker, motorcycle, or whatever, with an engine that has sat for years, and won't even turn over, and get it to run.

He's very methodical in his approach, and keeps up a running patter that I find humorous, but that keeps the viewer informed about what he's doing and why.

Also relating to military history is a guy I've been following for some time, Maj. Nick "The Chieftain" Moran. Being an armor officer, he generally discusses armor technology and doctrine, but while he's not an expert in the traditional sense, he discusses the subject in ways that one tends not to see very often, principally ergonomics and logistics.

Most folks go to a museum to talk about a tank from WW2, you'll hear them go off about armor thickness or gun penetration, or maybe about how many could be built, but not often about how much room the crew has to perform their duties more effectively, or how easy the tank is to maintain and repair, or how circumstances of the nation which built it (beyond economics) impacted its design. He works as an in-house historian for WarGaming, and while I'm not a huge fan of their games, he nevertheless has access to primary sources, which helps his argument somewhat. Or maybe it's just nice to have a break from people singing praises to the Tiger I.
