SourceFed: the awesome new YouTube channel

If you’re not up to speed on YouTube news, they recently decided to pump $100 million dollars into creating  new channels of original content for the website.

One of my new favorite channels from that multimillion dollar investment is called SourceFed.

SourceFed is essentially a video series on YouTube that delivers short video clips about newsy-type topics ranging from politicians to dinosaurs.

It’s sort of like a short version of The Colbert Report for YouTube.

Or as SourceFed describes their channel:

“everything that should and shouldn’t matter to you explained and broken apart by people who vomit words.”

Their flagship show is called 20 Minutes or Less, and it’s all kinds of awesome.

Why?

SourceFed is based on a blog of the same name by Phillip DeFranco, who is one of the biggest celebrities on YouTube. His show, The Phillip Defranco Show, is equally hilarious as well. I watch his show on a daily basis. [Edit: I should note that Philly D’s show is not family friendly (it contains explicit language), but SourceFed keeps it clean – for the most part.]

The writing for 20 Minutes or Less is really great.

The editing is fast paced, the hosts for SourceFed, which include Phillip DeFrancoJoe Beretta, Lee NewtonElliot Morgan, and Kevin Brueck do a really good job keeping the topics interesting with snarky commentary and using a lot of humor throughout the show.

What do you think about YouTube’s investment in original content? Do you watch any YouTube shows on a regular basis?

Here’s an episode of 20 Minutes or Less from last week where the hosts learn that a new species of dinosaur was discovered.
