The reason I hate YouTube videos and podcasts is that I think a lot faster than most people talk. It’s torture to watch them struggling to get a simple thought out in painfully roundabout and wordy ways.
In order to deliver a powerful monologue that won’t be deathly boring, you need to have five professional writers help you write and polish it, and then you need to have years of professional experience on how to deliver it without mumbling and bleating. On top of that, you need a natural charisma, a pleasing appearance, a clear pronunciation, and a strong, magnetic personality.
Most people (including me) don’t have any of these qualities. But they might have interesting and useful ideas. And if they wrote those ideas down instead of trying to get them out verbally, I could skim them in 3 seconds and decide if they are useful.
This is why I don’t have a YouTube channel and don’t subscribe to any.
