I think this list of EA-related podcasts [EA · GW] and this directory to various EA-related resources are great, for helping people learn about, and keep up with, the wonderfully growing set of EA-related ideas and research.
But I’m not aware of any list of all the sources of EA-related videos - not just a list of individual videos, but of channels, playlists, or sites with tens or hundreds of videos each. So, since I’m a massive nerd who’s had to keep finding new sources of videos to gobble up, I thought I’d make such a list.
I’ve roughly grouped the sources by topic. Within each topic, I’ve put the sources roughly in order from most to least “relevant to that topic or useful in my very subjective opinion”. But don't read too much into the ordering, as there are some sources I just haven’t yet watched videos from.
(Edit: See also Brian Tan's A ranked list of all EA-relevant documentaries, movies, and TV series I've watched [EA · GW], and my A ranked list of all EA-relevant (audio)books I've read [EA · GW].)
Various EA-related topics
I don’t bother listing these sources again in each of the other sections they’re relevant to, as most of them are relevant to basically all other topics.
Centre for Effective Altruism [has all or most EAG talks since 2016, I think]
EAGx Australia [starts from 2019]
Effective Altruism Australia [has all or most EAGx Australia talks until 2019, I think]
Effective Altruism Global [has all or most EAG talks until 2016, I think]
Effective Altruism [has only two videos, both from 2016]
Future of Life Institute (FLI)
Center on Long-Term Risk (CLR)
Very heavy AI focus
Cause priorisation/global priorities
Global health and development
Other areas many EAs are interested in
Entrepreneurship, decision-making, productivity, etc.
Please mention in the comments any other relevant channels, playlists, or sites, or similar lists, that you’re aware of. I hope to update this list over time, and have it be a useful one-stop shop. In particular, I’m mostly focused on longtermism myself, and thus I haven’t specifically looked for sources of videos focused on other cause areas, so please comment if you know of any.
Also, disclaimer: I am not advising anyone spend their whole lives watching all these videos, or that they limit themselves only to these ideas that are already sort-of in the EA ecosystem (rather than exploring the rest of the world’s knowledge and then bringing some back into EA). I’m just providing a list for if and when you do want explicitly EA-related videos.
