      My grandfather was such a teacher. When old students of his recognize our last name, they tell me how my grandfather changed their lives, inspired them to do this or that, and in some cases become teachers themselves. It is really touching and awesome, and it serves as a reminder to never give up on anybody

      @Dwayne Williams 20 million subs, not views on their channel or views on any specific video. Views reach over a single billion. The “20M Subs” in the title gives it away pretty quick, if you think for sec.

    I'm glad you finally addressed this. People were worried.
    It's nice to know your group is willing to be transparent about this sort of thing.

    • Thomas McGrath
      Thomas McGrath Month ago +72

      It didn't address it though, sadly :(
      They didn't say when the funding from those last two started, so how much of their current funding is from them? And are those last two sources of funding related? And just because it's not 50%+ of their funding doesn't mean they don't have an influence. They didn't address the criticism of their source gathering in the video or in the article they linked to. And most of this video was a narrative about their founder and the channel's history portrayed as an inspiring success story, which isn't appropriate in a conversation like this and doesn't have anything to do at all with the criticisms. It's an appeal to emotion which muddies the waters. I'm not saying any of that was malicious or even intended, maybe they just produced what they thought and felt and this was the product. But it makes me nervous for sure.
      As i said, this video doesn't convince me that their funding doesn't influence their content. If someone asked you right now to explain why kurtsgesagt isn't influenced by those grants, how would you do it? I want to trust kurtsgesagt as much as you do, i don't want to start a comment section argument either. If you're willing, please give me an answer, i won't argue back or anything.

      GOLIATHRIOT Month ago +17

      @Thomas McGrath regarding how they compile the research for their videos, there's a link to an article they wrote on it in the desc, maybe that might give some more info? I haven't checked it myself yet though. I will say however that it's kind of impossible not to be influenced by sponsors completely even if it's on a somewhat subconscious level. It's a full team of people too so I'm sure not everyone in the group feels the same way about sponsorships or have malicious intent or biases when putting out these videos..in general I'd like to believe kurtzgesagt is genuinely trying their best to spread the ideas that they detailed in this video

    • alphaxfang
      alphaxfang Month ago +30

      @Thomas McGrath i doubt a small percentage of an income can dictate their direction... if it a big chunk like 20% or something maybe, but a single digit percentage of income steering their direction and risking their bigger income stream is illogical...

    • Theonevidz
      Theonevidz Month ago +25

      @Thomas McGrath who the fuck cares where their funding comes from. BG is a good dude.

    • Ben
      Ben Month ago +20

      ​@alphaxfang from my point of view this is more about the " critisim generates views easier" point. Every Video I saw criticising their BG funding had completly surreal Idealismus of what the World should look like while at the same time piggybackriding on KGs success. Non of their Videos had even close the number of views as their critising Videos had and non had even close the Produktion value of even the first KG Videos.
      It's just monetizing on Internet drama with the hypocritic side product of at the same time criticising monetized Videos.

      @shAp What are you getting mad at? That people have different opinions? That experts disagree on outcomes? Besides, they said that they do the video then the sponsor pays for it, whichever sponsor that happens to want to pay for it.

  • Youssef Tamer

    I think most people know how complicated it is to run and fund a channel or project across multiple platforms of media, and yet to simplify things, this video basically addressed everything in a less complex way. It’s just what Kurzgesagt does, simplify complex topics that people want to know more about

  • TheAdvertisement
    TheAdvertisement Day ago +2

    Kurzgesagt really responded to the allegations by pulling out everything you need to know about their company and more, exactly how things work. They didn't retaliate, they didn't scrutinize or insult, they simply did what they always do: Educate!

    Understanding that the challenges we're a facing are somewhat similar to the challenges Kurzgesagt has faced during the past few years reassures us we're in the right path of communicating science effectively. Creating, developing and sustaining a business centered around science communication is definitely not an easy thing to accomplish, but you guys are making it and, besides that, you are sharing knowledge which will help others to expand and reach bigger audiences. Keep up the outstanding work. Warm regards from Brazil!

    I’ve been watching this channel since my early high school days (2014-2015ish) and it’s been really cool to see it grow from a smaller channel into a powerhouse in the Clip-Share/Science community. I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit concerned after seeing the critical video (we all know the one), but y’all being this transparent about EVERYTHING is a huge confidence booster. At the end of the day it’s up to the individual to discern all of this information themselves, but this was a really good step in a positive direction.

      Another interesting angle is that Kurzgesagt motivates people too to get into science without degrees (consider Phillip's, who has a design degree, book about the immune system). Opening up sciences a little to not be so extremely dependent on academia is important.

I was immediately enamored then and I still am-- you were even the first Clip-Share channel I ever signed up on Patreon for. I've told people far and wide about your videos, and everyone has always loved them. I even have a few teacher friends showing your videos as a part of their lessons!
    It honestly brings a tear to my eye to see that you all have grown so much and come so far. I'm so proud and happy for you all, and I'll be happily sipping from my birb mug and awaiting the next Kurzegesagt video notification

      She even won annual most favourite teacher in the first year she come to school
      The mind-blowing part for me is that she can make my extremely lazy friend think her lesson is very-very important and won't skip her lesson while he's still be lazy and skip classes at other subject

      What do you guys want? Should kurtzgesagt stop making videos, close their channel and leave Clip-Share all together? 😑 Why is it that some of you hold grudge against them? Did they ruin your life or something?

    I think that your videos are really deep hard work, you discuss very very complex things and make them simple for even 8 year old’s. Secondly you inspire many people to know and maybe even cherish what they have learned. You can inspire kids to become astronomers,mechanical engineers, animators and more. So what I really think should happen is that you should work with education to explain to little ones, the big astronomy, Disastrous climate change, or even feeling lonely. I and a lot of people really loves what you do kurzsegat, I was greatly inspired, I felt valuable, I was thought but not forced and felt like a speckle of dust in the universe. Thank you and goodbye.
