'Brian Talks' Youtube Channel

'Brian Talks' Youtube Channel

Brian has written a soapbox on his website since at least 2006, where he comments on various subjects, including music, science, stereoscopy, animal rights and politics, among many others. On 1st January 2015, he launched a 'Brian Talks' Youtube channel, featuring videos from many of his interests, which acts as a sister channel to his soapbox.

At current, video uploads fall into the categories listed below. In most cases, the titles below are the same as the uploads, with the exception of many of the selfie videos. As the videos are available for free on Youtube, I will not go into great details about the contents of each. This page lists all uploads up to 30 July 2016.
