What If We Covered the Sahara With Solar Panels?
Why Ghana Deliberately Flooded 3.5% of Their Land.
Why Anchorage is America’s Most OP City.
Those are but a few of the titles of videos on the RealLifeLore YouTube channel. These videos, along with the rest of the ones on the channel, are filled with interesting facts, explanations and insight that act as fun educational sessions—typically on topics that you didn’t even know you wanted to know more about until you read the video’s title.
It’s all put together by Joseph Pisenti, a Dallas native who loves to discuss history. Videos might discuss the geographical disadvantages some countries have in a series called “Why ___’s Geography Sucks.” Other series look at the strange borders between nations, hypothetical situations and various analyses of interesting populational statistics.
From wars to hypothetical scenarios to specific geographical analysis, RealLifeLore offers heavily researched and educational videos for a broad audience. Whether it’s exploring popular topics or obscure ideas, the channel makes its videos interesting and fun for viewers to watch. Not only that, but the videos are also quite easy to understand, even when a topic being discussed is complex.
That fact is even more impressive because RealLifeLore’s creator strives to make each video as neutral as he can—especially regarding politically controversial subjects. Instead, the channel tries to navigate the complex issues by sticking to the facts as much as possible.
What’ll make parents even happier is the cleanliness of the content. You won’t need to worry about rogue swear words or shocking content appearing in these videos.
That said, touching on real-world events forces RealLifeLore to address some of the less-savory parts of life, too. Various videos cover wars and conflicts, economic issues and other subjects that may cause some viewers discomfort. One video discusses the ingenuity of Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system; another analyzes the effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on the rest of the world. A third video dives into Russia’s historic issues regarding alcoholism, for example.
Parents may decide that some videos deal with topics that are too mature for younger children.
RealLifeLore provides detailed videos on a large variety of topics related to the world’s countries and cultures. Combined with a lack of overtly negative content concerns, RealLifeLore provides an educational look into interesting issues that many families will enjoy.
Though he was born in Kansas, Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics and hermeneutics. His favorite movie is La La Land.
