One of my favorite subscriptions on YouTube is MinutePhysics. Each video is an infusion of physics and short bursts of animation; it’s entertaining. Interested in learning about Einstein, neutrinos, or the Higgs Boson, but don’t have the time to do a lot of reading, this is one subscription you never want to miss. Below
