Prep Genrl Prepping youtube channels

I'm getting disgusted with so many youtube channels spending most of the time on a video hawking the prep things they are affiliates on, after saying how awful things are getting and you better hurry up and buy my stuff.

It's like most things. It evolved from an information stream, to a revenue stream. When they do, and they all eventually do, they lose the reason I subbed in the first place. Secondarily, the evolution of YouTube and their "policies" has been driving off a great deal of the content I was interested in.
There are a couple channels I give my attention to, that show what works for them, and openly state that this is why I like "widget brand x", but follow that up every time with do your own research, and get what works for you, whether in performance or budget. One in particular also makes sure that his message is informational and positive, rather than "prepper doom porn" as he calls it. Time will tell if he survives the profit march. Other channels get a bit dramatic, even if they aren't specifically hawking wares.

Thanks for the comment and welcome to TB. I agree with your comments.

I have found the same thing over time. It is really sad as it provided a great source of prep for us who were either new or needed reminders of what needed to be done.

I understand the need to show different bags for bug out, but when you tell me the latest is better than the latest you showed me last week, I begin to wonder.... that is never good....

I also want to see reminders of the pantry, what to carry in either the car or on your person, etc. Don't show me a $300 knife and tell me you carry it every day as that would make you carrying 16 knives every day and even my wife doesn't carry that many on a daily basis.

I could go on, but I am sad about it.

One I will call out is Scootch00 for doing that....

Prepper Nurse 1 is pretty good. Down to earth and his videos are always full of his dogs, cats and chickens. He does sell freeze dried and gets a commission but doesn’t push the goods.

He's the one that prompted my comment, he had a whole video pushing his freeze dried foods. But I still listen to him, I love his cats.

Ive only watched him for a few weeks. Only thing I’ve heard is that his supplier is running behind. I haven’t felt pressure to buy his stuff. He is an enjoyable watch.

I really don't mind a video here and there pushing something they can make money from, but some of these guys are pushing harder than the guy selling crack on the corner....

I watch Preppernurse1 also and enjoy his comments and home situation...…….don't watch a lot of preppers....the Alaskan prepper guy (forgot his name!) doesn't push either...….Ice Age Farmer gives good factual news and views.....Patriot nurse is interesting and knowledgable……...some are over the top...…..

This is eXe's (TB2K mod) channel: Iridium242

He has good survival and gear reviews.
This is common knowledge and has been posted in the past, I'm not "outing" him.
