What to Watch Today

Television has gone down the tubes.

Reality TV is the worst… or is it? No. Reality TV is the best, just as long as it is real. I’m talking history, people. I’m talking about current events. I’m talking about people really doing things. In the deluge of content available now, here is the cream of the crop as I see it, to include audiobooks, lectures, and podcasts.

Video and TV

  • TED
  • Extra Credits History. Awesome short history summaries. These can help you decide what you are interested in.
  • Numberphile. All about numbers by mathematicians. (Give it a chance!)
  • More Freedom Foundation by Rob Morris. Political, but connects recent history to current events. Follows a coherent line of thought from video to video unlike mainstream news coverage.
  • YouTube Fulton Sheen. Simple lessons on life from the 1950s.
  • YouTube Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Lectures, Podcasts, Audiobooks

Stuff I Haven’t Seen (Yet)
