I enjoy watching documentaries, and decided to start a thread here to share English-language documentaries that I watch. YouTube is full of great videos, but it is a dark labyrinth of videos waiting to be discovered.

Most of the English-language documentaries/interviews/lectures that I watch are related to (a) the origin and structure of the universe, (b) the origin of life on Earth, and (c) history, culture, or politics.

The following are most of last week's videos:

This video is an archaeological perspective providing a brief history of Spanish colonization of the Maya and how linguists have decoded the Maya writing system.

"Origins: Earth is Born" is about the atmospheric and chemical compositions of early Earth that gave rise to the origin of life on Earth. The narrator: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_deGrasse_Tyson. See also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4z4gISBuDVU.

A documentary on Albert Eistein's life and ideas, which led me to the next video...

Conan O'Brien interviews a biographer of Richard Nixon. I didn't realize how strange and complicated Nixon was.

I like watching documentaries about crackpot conspiracies. I like the new insight on things. When you can think really crazy things like that in connected manners, it can really make you think and i like that. I of course don't believe 4/5 of it, but just the food for thought is great.

If you like documentaries, you'll probably like Adam Ruins Everything. It's a very good show.

"Going Clear" was really good, all about Scientology. I think it's on HBO Go still if you have access to that
