Some analysis/criticism of channels listed in the OP that I hadn't heard of before:
More of these kinds of content creators are needed. If it was something Breadtube seriously lacked it was these types of people that applied their socialist understanding to the material present reality in analysis of news etc.
This is good and could grow quickly if shared more. Minor criticism would be to mix his audio better and maybe change channel name to something more appealing.
Overall good stuff, very down-to-Earth and high relatability to most I think. I would just recommend to keep the streams shorter again, closer to 1h instead of ~1.5h.
Very good stuff, recommend to you all.

I really liked that he had a video on Venture Communism, which is an obscure new theory by another guy - a euro named Dmytri Kleiner, who proposed the quasi-cybersocialist theory called 'telekommunism', through The Telekommunist Manifesto
. I think it is from here the notion of 'venture communism' comes from, in connection to that broader framework.
Really good. Refreshing take on China too (does historical materialist analysis of the history of the PRC, doesn't pretend that they're contemporarily in socialism as some mental midgets do for some ethereal Xi-bucks that aren't arriving).
Great. Odd that I seemed to have missed this one completely since they seem to have traction.

One of the better channels, needs more frequent sharing.
I'll be blunt: what was evident from the first second was that she's another one in the long line to blatantly copy Contrapoint's aesthetics. This is something that can be forgiven, since it 'just works' to an extent (but it does come off as kind of lazy). Her content seems okay, or above-average, it could grow into something that works, especially if she collabs to learn some better ways of conveying messages (and not ripping off every obnoxious trait of cinematography down to the details of Contra, even the obnoxiously long videos, or camera-centered-straight-on-person-in-monologue-forever shots - it definitely should be recommended against for people who just started making YT videos).
This guy needs to decide whether his channel is for serious content or shitposting.
He spelled his name wrong and needs to do shorter podcast-streams (1h instead of 2h+) and instead upload more clips.
What I initially thought to be a fairly good channel (watching his first, well-made video) I quickly discovered some major flaws. He seems to still have major issues with editing (the second video involves 1/3rd of dead air in the middle of it, I'm unsure if he's even aware) and the third video was a downgrade from the first in its static presentation of a single image, instead of the montage-of-stock-footage style he began with (it is always preferable to a still image). He has potential though.
Sad to see that he pretty much has stopped making videos. Does anyone know if he has quit or if he's just on a break or something less serious?
A pro- capitalist-roader-PRC Maoist 3rd Worldist? He seemed to unironically recommend Settlers
His very poor argument for "Christian communism" in this vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkX1h1I0-sE
(basically 'liberal free will allows me to, mind your own business atheoid!' is enough for me to think that he should not be recommended in any sort of 'Breadtube' sense.
Like an amalgam of the worst traits of /leftypol/ as a community made into a YT channel (Vaush obsession, getting duped by reactionary opportunists ("based Tucker Carlson").
Pretty sure you either misspelled this or unintentionally wrote it down (channel doesn't seem to be political).
NOPE. These are radlibs, with susicious ties. But nevermind, since the channel seems dead since half a year back anyway.
Dead channel (last vid uploaded 7 years ago) with exclusively Chomsky clips from a good while ago. Meh.
-sub-category - consumerism:
... I guess he can appeal to the sub-sub-sub-demographic that is both balls-deep in otaku culture as well as
same as above...?
Now this is simply cringe.
Unhinged and certainly cringe. Leftist clips fused with Star Wars anti-fascism (literally). Politics seems somewhat informed but the focus is unfortunately way off and they also disporportionately focus on idpol over class issues (idpol videos get the longest time dedicated to them by far).
Another gamer-leftist. Since he isn't LARPing as an anime girl I guess he's the better of the lot.

Don't be silly, channels like these are our secret stash. Normal people are not going to understand this stuff or find it immediately relatable; the layers and memes are simply too dank for widespread consumption. You graduate
to this stuff.
The ones in the OP I didn't mention I considered widely known already and/or recommendable.
