Youtube channels is a hodgepodge of whatever I am currently into. In a similar vein, I am a big fan of GoRails.
For strict information gathering, I recently got an Audible subscription and love it. I listen to music while working, but Audible I save for while I'm commuting.
Looking at ones i frequent, I have noticed a pattern to pay for services I use. I am also a privacy badger/uBlock user, but I still prefer to pay for services if it means no ads or a better experience.
