Since 2005, YouTube has continued to hold its place as a go-to resource and rabbit hole for videos and content. Vlogging and podcasting soar in popularity ranks as both mediums connect people from all over the world with so much to share. It’s only natural for content gurus to experiment with additional platforms of expression and creation.
We’re seeing more and more YouTubers organically branching out into podcasts. In addition, many of the episodes have video versions on YouTube. The majority of the shows we’ve selected below also feature bonus scene videos and outtakes of each audio episode posted to their respective channels.
Are you a YouTube fan who doesn’t always have time to watch your favorite channels? Need to listen while you’re working on something else and can’t devote your full attention to a screen? Or need a total break from screen-watching? We’ve chosen some podcasts created by YouTubers. Some are OG YouTubers, others are newer to YouTubing.
