There are a lot of YouTubers that I just love. Bourbon Moth Woodworking, Matthias Wendel, Today I found Out, Veritasium, Smarter Every Day, Real Life Lore, etc. They're very successful and I love the work they do. These are intelligent people who've figured out a way to make a very good living making high quality videos.
That other thing you mentioned — the Kardashian look-at-me types — get exactly zero play time with my eyeballs. None, zip, nada!
Still, many of the people I love to watch seem to be getting frustrated with YouTube and are at least experimenting with Curiosity Stream and Nebula. But they're subscription driven (no ads) and I can't figure out how much they cost.
