I know John of Cleanerwatt is on here, so I’ll give him some props right off the bat. But beyond him and this board, do you, and if you do, who do you watch on YT to get Tesla/CT/EV updates? (And who else is on here?)

In addition to CW, I watch
Joe’s overflights (I know he’s here too)
TailosiveEV
Ryan Shaw


I get a kick out of them when they occasionally mention “some people online say/think…” and then quote a discussion on here.

Some of these are only available occasionally but I watch them when they are. Others I watch only occasionally no matter how often they are available.

I do not like John of Cleanerwatt, or his opinions. I finally made through on my promise to unsubscribe :p

<3 Joe's flyovers and commentary, Tegtmeyer's channel is probably my number 1. The limiting factor is a great one, Electrified is fine. Dr know it all is pretty good, dirty tesla not really CT but for FSD i like him... Few others, but those are the main ones.

I forgot Electrified and DrKnowItAll. I watch the Dr depending on the subject of the video. I’ve had a couple issues with DirtyTesla, so not so much.

There is Brighter with Herbert and Dave Lee. Both of them get James Douma on often and James is fantastic to get great insight on FSD and machine learning.

I find ‘the Doctor’ to be very wordy and not very knowledgeable so I don’t watch anymore. When @Cleanerwatt started reposting other’s content I stopped watching him. Although they focus on FSD, I really like AiDrivr’s videos and DirtyTesla because he is videoing my home town of Ann Arbor and I get to see it without going there and I get to see FSD in action there. Most of my information comes from here and from the videos.

I can agree with you (JHodges) and SolarWizard as over the last 2 to 3 months it seems they all are chasing more after the clicks. I think anything Cybertruck related is ramping up out there in the interweb and they are throwing out as much content as possible to help their algorithms on search engines.

That is why I won't listen to Farzad and Hit that bid anymore. Some have got to the point they are posting out content on their way home from work.

I stick with Tesla Daily mainly because I feel like Rob has been in this since day 1 when no one was covering Tesla and he has been almost every day trying to do his best to educate and inform.

Anybody running ads isn’t getting my eyes, especially since several listed simply regurgitate info thats posted here
They have to have ‘something’ original for me to watch. Original and good. Advertising is bad because it shows me that they aren’t hobbyists or people trying to make a difference but are trying to make a living doing it. My bar is much, much higher for ‘professionals’.

Anything I missed from Greggertruck or here will be here
https://www.youtube.com/@TeslaDaily

A broader view will be here weekly, without having to wade through fannisms
https://www.youtube.com/@transportevolved

If there's an argument with math, he'll do it, and update his math if he got it wrong
https://www.youtube.com/@EngineeringExplained

If you want the fannisms in a weekly lump? I let these guys run in the background at least once a week.
https://www.youtube.com/@NowYouKnowChannel

You want the Tesla deets only?
https://www.youtube.com/@DirtyTesla

Everyone else is pretty much superfluous. But to be completionist, these are the other Tesla-focused ones I follow:

You want to know who's trolling who?
https://www.youtube.com/@SamAlexanderYouTube

You want to see FSD Beta perform well in tight spaces?
https://www.youtube.com/@AIDRIVR

You want to know what's up at Giga Texas?
https://www.youtube.com/@JoeTegtmeyer

When there's a teardown, or materials question...
https://www.youtube.com/@MunroLive

And a minerals, or investor look-aheads
https://www.youtube.com/@thelimitingfactor

I chip in a few dollars to each of them, except the last one. He doesn't know when not to troll people on Twitter with bigoted memes. Don't ask, there's one in every room. You just know some people have bad social skills. His info is stellar, tho, as is his narration.

As for keeping up to the minute... Just check trending topics on X/Twitter. You'll have to be logged in for that to work, of course, and there's tons of spam. But the real stuff is still there, under all the spam accounts. At least for now. It's been getting worse over the last year. Making the impossible merely late and all.

To me this forum is the best place. Aggregator of information and informative & entertaining discussions. Typically stuff that's new is from a member anyway so might as well watch here. I get notifications when there's new info so no need to go anywhere else.
