Rick is a musician who makes learning music theory super fun. He has a clear way of explaining what’s happening beneath the music you’re listening to. One of his popular segments is called “What makes this song so great?”. He takes a popular song and strips it down layer by layer to help you better understand the musical forces at work. I always find something new to appreciate about the songs I love.

Vox is a media powerhouse and their videos are unbelievably good. This channel is a millennial approach to journalism where news is not only delivered but its causes and impacts are also explained in a rather short amount of time. Having a back story and knowing the impact of 'news stories'. Having said that, their explainer videos are also pretty stylistic. Their content keeps me engaged and increases retention. It also helps me start a healthy debate with other informed individuals. It is a form of informative/educational journalism.
