My Favorite YouTube Science Channels
Welcome to the SB&F Editor's Blog. I am Maria Sosa, Editor-in-Chief of SB&F. Through this blog I hope to interact with the SB&F community and post news and information related to science books, videos, authors, opportunities and other topics of interest to our readers. I hope you find the blog useful and entertaining. Please, join the conversation by posting a comment on our Facebook page. I'd love to hear from you!


In the August issue of SB&F we included a list of some of our favorite YouTube channels. Since August 4-10 is Geek Week on YouTube, we decided to publish the list on our blog too, with some additions. If you want to recommend a channel not on the list, please leave a comment on our Facebook page.  And don't forget, we have our own SB&F Youtube Channel that features videos mainly about science books and authors, especially focused on the AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books. You can find us at
