Each week, I sift through dozens and dozens of post-apocalyptic-themed YouTube videos to find the very best for you, but this week I’ve decided to skip the entertainment factor and go straight for the educational factor.
This week’s YouTube Round-up is all about survival. Every few months I like to make these round-ups about real-world topics like bushcrafting, shelter building, and even camping gadgets. And a particular style of video I especially appreciate is those without narration or wackiness. Six of the seven videos here have no narration, just pure nature sounds (I put the one with talking at the end).
Please let me know what you think of these videos in the comments. Would you like to see more of this in the weekly round-up? Maybe a separate survival round-up? Let me know!
