If you’re anything like me, you can never get enough D&D-content. So, I thought I’d let you know about some of my favorite, underrated YouTube-channels.
There’s a tonne of great content creators for D&D out there, and I won’t pretend to know all of them. Of course, there’s some that most of you probably know. Chances are, you’ve heard of Critical Role, Matt Colville, and even ‘smaller’ channels like Taking20 and WebDM.
The channels I’ll talk below have much smaller followings, and undeservedly so! They’re channels I subscribe to personally, and would recommend you check out as well.
Odd name aside, Zipperon Disney puts out a steady rate of 2-4 videos per month. A small channel with about 6,000 subscribes at the time of writing, Zipperon Disney has a very professional approach, high quality of content and thinks very creatively about D&D. There’s great videos about everything to telling stories and pacing encounters to deeper delves into the mechanics of fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons.
With just about 3,000 subscribers, the Dungeon Coach is a fairly new channel, but with high quality content. The channel often caters more to beginners, but you can tell that the guy running it genuinely cares, and puts effort into making his videos approachable and easy-to-consume.
Even though Matthew Perkins (who coincidentally shares first and last name with quite a few D&D-celebrities!) only has just shy of 2,000 subscribers, his channel has actually been around for quite a while. Matthew makes great content, and although the quality of production isn’t always the most inspiring, I don’t personally think you need flashy animations and intros to produce worthwhile content. Matthew has interesting thoughts about D&D, which are well-worth watching, and certainly deserves more subscribers than he has.
What did I miss?
If I missed your favorite creator, let me know about it in the comments or write us at firstname.lastname@example.org! That’s it for now, I’ll come back to update these recommendations as I learn about more great, smaller YouTube-channels!
