Where are the History Nerds on Youtube?

I looove watching all the great educational content that's on Youtube. But most of it is Science & Philosophy based. What are some good History channels I should tap into?

I love Extra Credits and Crash Course but pretty much everything else seems to be Science based. What else should I be checking out?

You could try Quora. You need to register.

Khan Academy has a History section.

You also have universities posting on Youtube. Here's the playlists of Yale and Harvard, which include history courses.

There's also the US National Archives.

The Brain Scoop is mostly science (sorry), but it sometimes dives into history in really interesting ways.

If you want something more specific/specialist, then for Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) I can recommend Schola Gladiatora's Matt Easton.

Knyght Errant for late Medieval European armor.

Newer episodes are free. The recent series on WWI was amazing.

Oh you were after video content I guess. No video in Hardcore History but still good.
