What's your favourite youtube science-related channel and science podcasts? List them here and mention one particular episode for you from that youtube channel or podcast episode that you think was outstanding.

Me? I could have mentioned the Neil DeGrasse Tyson show but I have decided to mention instead something more offbeat which is this channel on youtube called 'The Hacksmith'.

It's basically a channel by a group of Canadian engineers who every week try to create something out of sci-fi film/literature.
