youtube is being veganized slowly but surely. the number of effective vegan channels seems to be growing steadily.
this thread brings you the good and the not-so good primarily focusing on the ethics of the movement rather than environment and health (which is why it is in this category on 30bad, though we have made a few exceptions with certain individuals).
below are two lists (contents presented in no particular order).
those we think are doing a great job pushing the envelope and changing the world. their work is substantiated factually and they deliver their message with understandable enthusiasm.
those who keep commenting about vegan, but don't seem be doing proper justice to the concept. they may claim to be vegan, but their arguments tend to make one question which side they are actually on. they actually come across almost as industry shills. of course, in this section, we will also include the rather obvious anti-vegans who desperately cling to "their way" with the most remarkable rationalizations.
please note that we are providing general impressions here. we certainly haven't watched every video that has been made by the individuals listed below. we have however seen enough to classify them into the two lists.
please feel free to post in this thread if you want me to update this one to include other worthy possibilities ... to either list.
we hope this thread will serve as a guide for people wanting to find intelligent vegan commentary on youtube ... as well as, enjoying the not-so-intelligent contributions which invariably enhance the former experiences.
just remember that we are here on 30bad because this wonderful individual made this forum. she creates a wonderful mixture, merging health and animal rights. her work keeps getting better and better. it is rare to come across a more determined and dedicated person who continuously seeks to improve herself and the world she inhabits!
he tells things straight and doesn't mess around! dr, like freelee, continuously strives to make this world what it should be, rather than giving in to what it presently is.
emily has put together some excellent videos that encapsulate the important ideas about veganism. her work is sensible, well-researched and efficient! you'll find her stuff right here on 30bad too!
an inspiration to many, this guy has been a formidable force in the movement. he doesn't mess around and tells the story of animal abuse just as it is!
5. vegan gains
richard doesn't hold back on yelling the truth. he provides research articles on this statements as he tears down "the worst of the fitness industry". we also thank him for several recommendations on good vegan channels to watch.
charles' precise and exuberant argumentation enables the swift destruction of the absurdities some non-vegans try to uphold.
thoughtful, well-constructed and effectively spoken work makes these videos easy to understand and highly informative.
jacob (a 30bader) writes superb articles and provides excellent commentary on youtube.
this guy makes some very amusing videos through which he exposes the absurdities that anti-vegan have to resort to in order to rationalize their despicable eating habits.
sylvie, another 30bader who is also a professional photographer, produces some of the best quality videos on youtube! i've found her work to be right on target and delightfully humorous!
some of the most cohesively intelligent arguments come from this 30bader!
though not directly arguing ethics, ryan and hunter are an energetic vegan couple who, by example, encourage others to be energetic and vegan and may be even couple.
shelly has been creating excellent videos utilizing logical arguments and exposing logical fallacies for several years now.
14. Simone Reyes
simone is a very experience activist who has fought in the trenches for many years. she provides a thorough perspective on the movement with power and eloquence.
15. Mic. the Vegan
mic puts together excellent arguments through a fine blend of science and ethics. his presentations are particularly well-expressed in terms of their lucid content, rational thought and even poetic expression!
while i personally have some trouble deciphering what abdullah is saying sometimes (i think he may hold the record for injecting the fewest non-swear words of any on this list), this guy is direct and straight-forward - comes across as an honest and strong vegan.
Anji and Ryan are two very cool and knowledgeable vegans (and 30baders) who present their points rationally. They cover a wide variety of topics and are a pleasure to watch.
this is mr universe barny du plessis 100% warrior vegan (and friends). they bring not only body-building to you, but also the vegan message in an uncompromising way!
19. Sorsha Morava
sorsha (yet another 30bader) presents very effectively with her natural sense of humor and scathing critiques which do not equivocate! her videos are very well created with research from multiple sources. in her 30bad profile, she writes that she wants to "spread the vegan message & help people find the truth". she is certainly doing that in a most delightful way!
speaking in a direct but laidback style, matthew provides good health content coupled vegan matters. he is also very good at exposing those who express their ideas improperly either grammatically or logically.
well-put-together videos emphasize vegan solutions by this knowledgeable youtuber. he tears up the typical rationalizations made by corpse-eaters using science, logic and established data.
again we have another 30bader starting to get the vegan message out there honestly and without compromise. DatVegan's videos are short and to the point!
yep! that's the amazing www.nutritionfacts.org site's dr. michael greger! he presents veganism's health realities through the actual science, but in a way that anyone can understand it! this is a thorough, knowledgeable professional ... and you really don't want to get into a debate against him!
24. John St Julien
once again we have a 30bader, not only making excellent videos on a wide range of subjects including veganism (his varied work is nicely organized on his page into subject categories), but also doing wonderful things through his NGO projects. he is an dynamic example for the vegan movement.
25. John Sakars
this guy presents the vegan message in what i find to be a rather unique and somewhat unusual way.
this is Tim "Livewire" Shieff an amazing parkour champ and ninja warrior. he also is a vegan activist and humbly says that the real warriors are those who defend the helpless!
27. Jon Venus
jon is a fitness model who provides online training and vegan meal plans as well as the right reasons for following his ideas.
kim and jameth sheridan have their own entertaining way of spreading enlightenment. this is only one of their outlets through which they spread the vegan message.
29. Jayme Joy
Jayme is yet another 30bader who has a lot of good videos on being vegan. she also encourages donations to ACRES (animal concerns research and education society) a group dedicated to ending animal cruelty in asia.
very clever and funny, onison has videos on a huge variety of topics including excellent ones on veganism (as well as commentary on those who try to justify their stance against it).
31. Vegetable Police
sensible, entertaining and amusing videos make this channel one to watch on a variety of vegan topics.
immy (a 30bader) produces some strikingly thoughtful work interlaced sometimes with humor, sometimes with poignancy.
33. Gary High-Fruit
also a 30bader, gary's presentations can provoke deeper thought and there is no doubt of his commitment to and knowledge of veganism and health.
a clear and thoughtful presenter, dareios (again a 30bader) has many videos on veganism and animal rights uploaded every 48hrs!
35. Cory McCarthy
Cory is a great advocate for veganism due to his physical prowess and intellectual insights! he not only presents and argues well he backs his efforts with thorough research and a good understanding of logical fallacy.
nicole (a 30bader) makes quality videos promoting the vegan message which have interesting variety with hard-hitting reality. she challenges people not only to improve their fitness, but come to grips with their conscience.
37. Kerry McCarpet
another 30bader, kerry's presentations are exceptionally intelligent and lucid. her clarity cuts through reasoning that is fallacious and exposes deliberate ignorance.
38. Bend It Raw
30bader Karri has rather imaginative ways to interest an audience about vegan eating and being pro-animal.
39. Plant Positive
this channel provides well-argued, scientifically based presentations on plant-based diets including specific responses to anti-vegan culprits and the nonsense these keep regurgitating.
40. Vegan Smythe
an exceptionally imaginative and creative individual who produces excellent music videos on a large variety of vegan issues even addressing fallacies that corpse eaters like to rationalize their indefensible position with. the works are of high professional quality.
41. Jack Green
a highly animated 30bader who speaks honestly and accurately about vegan issues.
42. Erin Janus
a passionate vegan, activist, writer, journalist, video producer and musician who produces informative videos.
despite some actual science in some of her videos, swayze (she used to be on 30bad some years ago), runs extraordinarily anthropocentric arguments which have no validity. she doesn't seem to understand the implications of her human supremacist position, possibly because she let herself be aynrandized many years ago and hasn't managed to outgrow this disability.
rachel puts forth remarkably racist comments which are, not surprisingly, equaled by her speciesist comments as well. her efforts seem to be directed against effective animal rights activists ... probably because they are effective.
many thx gousti!
i wasn't even aware of kerry's youtube efforts (beyond one video she posted a long time ago on 30bad), so i appreciate your pointing attention to her excellent stuff!
i do remember her very well though from her fine contribution to the create your own country challenge:

Kerry is the best!
