Sites and people I read and follow regularly – in no particular order but with my favourite YouTubers first:
- Douglas Murray – best followed in print see@DouglasKMurray on Twitter, but a trusted political analyst and hero of mine.
- James O’Brien ‘Unfiltered’ – excellent, eclectic interviews – politicians, footballers, actors, writers, comedians, journalists – high quality stuff.
- Philip DeFranco – ‘What’s up you beautiful bastards’
- Joe Rogan Experience – long, rambling ‘stuff’ – often some gold here
- Jordan Peterson – Video – Brilliant Canadian clinical psychologist – deep thoughts.
- Jordan Peterson – website
- Sam Harris – YouTube Channel but easier to follow this via his Podcasts – another hero
- The Rubin Report – American Free Speech – Very High Quality Interviews
