Lately I spend more time watching Youtube than regular television. There wasn’t much quality content on Youtube at first, but over the past few years some very experienced preppers have started some fantastic channels. Since a lot of people I talk to aren’t aware of this, I decided to compile a list of the 100 best prepper and survivalist Youtube channels (in my opinion). It would take days, maybe even weeks to check all these out, so I encourage you to bookmark this page.
I could have included over 100, but I decided to exclude channels that haven’t been adding new videos lately (as of this writing). That means I had to leave out great channels such as Analytical Survival, P.A.W. Productions, and The Survival Doctor, to name a few. But if I had included every good survival channel the list would have been ridiculously long.
If you’re a prepper and there’s nothing on TV, subscribe to these channels and your Youtube feed will fill up with hours of great content everyday! Now on to 100 best channels (in alphabetical order):
