Alright, let's play a game.

Boosts appreciated, the wider the reach, the more useful the responses.

Please suggest to me 1 - 5 channels on peertube, vemio, or youtube with under 1000 subscribers, that are producing interesting or worthwhile content.

Sketches and jokes! Video Essays! Concert films! You name it.

Show me your favorite works from small creators. I'm going to do a thing to highlight some of them.

1000 is arbitrary. Give me anybody you would consider a small creator.


In the spirit of this second missive:

David Tipton - Antique tube radio repair.

and Not Terrible Restorations by Dr. Beer - tool restoration


I don't watch a lot of video game streamers but ashantin is great, she has such a positive, curious personality that watching her streams is like drinking a cup of tea.

She has 1.5k subscribers, so just above your arbitrary cutoff but shes great.


Technics F.R - Tool restoration and some crafting

As it turns out, that's the only chan I subscribe to that is under a 1000 subscribers.

@ajroach42 This guy is a new Youtuber who does mystery and horror type stuff, but I think he's very good and will probably grow with time. Exposure on the fedi would be great for him!!


Thinkerthemer is composed of the duo/couple Amy and Maggie. They review board games and Amy focuses on the crunchy, thinky parts and Maggie focuses on the thematic parts. They have really good taste in games and the reviews are very entertaining.

They have 4.5k subs, so quite a bit bigger, but still not huge


Here you go: The #Call2PowerPodcast :

It's a weekly talk among two Black Germans, #JuniorSoma and #KobiRock of now 363 Subscribers - I watch every episode!

@ajroach42 he is at almost 5k but his music work need a really better recognition and reach !


Eric Normand has a channel about functional programming (he started his podcast/youtube channel to help write his book on functional programming).

He has many podcasts going over famous papers (Turing Award papers in particular) in programming/computer science history and he is really interesting to listen to.

The ideas of the papers he covers are big, and it's almost a philosophy channel in the best way.

@ajroach42 Here is an excellent youtube channel, but it has slightly more than 1000 subs. Worth a look though if you have any interest in Finnish folk tales.

@ajroach42 Apparently he's been doing some growing since last I checked, but the Cathode Ray Dude is an excellent educational channel, though if I had to guess I'd say you're already subscribed

@ajroach42 Infinite Potato:
Loads of nice hip hop kind of tunes, also some other genres, dont know why they dont get more exposure.

Also, our channel, on subjects around sustainable/regenerative activism, collective care, etc. although we don't yet have much content, that will change:
