But those people are presumably beginners with no knowledge of English so it's obvious they would have a stronger accent.

I bought a video download of Just for Graphs, a standup comedy show about ...graphs, which is one-third Matt Parker ((en-gb)(en-au)) of Youtube fame.

I love it.

minerva scientia, a Japanese polyglot reading samples in various obscure language, especially languages spoken in Japan. It seems as if all videos include translations into both Standard Japanese and English.

I don't know if this has been posted before, but Chef Rafi is a good channel for those who like to cook (especially fish) while learning languages at the same time.

So I was looking for the channel and stumbled upon this...

(en-ca) Stef Sanjati

^her most recent video

I love her so much, she's one of my favourite people ever. She talks about LGBTQ+ topics, particularly regarding being trans, and specifically a trans woman because that's her experience. Also she endorses punching nazis in the face :3

I discovered her yesterday thanks to another channel that I've started following:

(en-ca) uppercaseCHASE1

---

And here are the channels I want to suggest today:

(it) cimdrp (mainly about feminism and LGBT+ issues)

(es) varfunfun (about philology, linguistics and books)

(it) Barbaroffa (about current events, languages (he's an interpreter), communication and other miscellaneous things. It's a good channel for people learning Italian because he speaks quite slowly and has a standard accent, I guess he took some diction courses)
