  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Do you want to talk with us about this video? We’ll do a sort of Q&A or AMA or whatever in our subreddit:

    The Addiction and the Refugee videos will be online for 12 more hours before we delete them. This should be enough time for enough people to download them. Feel free to upload them elsewhere, but NOT on Youtube and NOT on Facebook. We’ll take them down on those two platforms because we don’t want people to monetize them or use them as viral content. Everywhere else is ok though!

      At least Kurzgegast is honest about their past bias and pledges to improve. I wonder when CNN and BBC will do the same.

                    I love this channel. I’ve always done my own research when hearing new information so it’s really nice for a source to be very straight forward with its imperfections. From the bottom of my heart you guys are awesome :)

                      At least you cite your sources, that’s more then many if not all right winger YouTubers can say.

                                    Trustworthiness might matter to you, but id watch your videos any day of the year and trust your ideals regardless of how well its been reviewed. Your videos are strong enough, I trust your ability to pull up a decent answer on amything... Well, anything that has an answer.

                                      You were terrible in the refugee video. And nope you are nothing but an imperialist seeking to control the conversation.

                                      Why did the EU need to build separate facilities for gay refugees? Why did so many refugees leave Czechia and Lithuania for Germany?

                                      You're a terrible person.

                                                      I think it was a decent video, looking after the Coffee Break drama and Reddit mobbings.

It's rare to find channels that actually own up to their faults and removes bad content. The way you research things does make me trust that you'll provide good insightful content and I'm looking forward to watching both old and new videos!
