Youtube Channels All Digital Nomads Need In Their Life.


Instant Karma and Cat videos are all well and good in small doses, but if you are going to be avoiding your projects and diving down the Youtube wormhole, you may as well learn something along the way. 

Here are a few channels for you to check out :


Thomas Frank - What better way to procrastinate than to watch videos teaching you how not to procrastinate? But in all seriousness, Thomas Frank is an absolute gem. Although his target audience was originally University students, there are so many topics he covers that have high relevance to the Digital Nomad lifestyle. Motivation, Learning Techniques, Habit Tracking, Task Management, or successful networking, Thomas covers it all. Check him out HERE!


Geography NOW! - Understanding even a little about the country and people of your new destination can enrich the experience and open a lot more doors. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get a crash course in Customs, Demographics, Political Geography, and Physical Geography, for literally any country on the planet, and delivered to your eyeballs in less than 15 minutes? 

This has been the mission of Paul Barby on his Geography NOW! Channel. For the past 5 years he has steadily been releasing an A-Z list of episodes, starting with Afghanistan, and at the time of writing he has reached Pakistan. 

Do yourself a favour and check out these highly entertaining episodes. You can check out the A-Z playlist HERE!

One Percent Better - Read a book every week? ‘Ain’t nobody got time for that’, and with One PercentBetter you won’t need time. Brandon Nankivell set up this channel with the aim of condensing self-development books into 10 minute animated summaries. Naturally, investing the time to read an entire book will pay off in the long run, but this serves as a great way of figuring out which books deserve your full attention.

Exploring Alternatives: Digital Nomads are not exactly the most conventional people, and this channel celebrates those who think outside the box. It explores topics such as Minimalism, Off-The-Grid living, Tiny Houses, Van life, Boat life, and Long-term Travel. These mini-documentaries will ignite an adventurous fire in even the most jaded souls. Get your daily dose of inspiration HERE!

And last but not least, no Nomad Youtube list would be complete without Chris The Freelancer.

For those who are exhausted by the loud and in-your-face Nomad Youtubers, Chris Dodd is a laidback breath of fresh air. As a long-time advocate of this lifestyle, he has covered a lot of ground, and has an argosy of info on his channel. He focuses heavily on popular Nomad hotspots and what to do and where to work once you get there, giving you the reality of working there and not glamourising anything. Check him out for yourself HERE!
