Armchair Academics

Armchair Academics is an independent educational video production company that specializes in making entertaining, informational video essays and mini-documentaries on social scientific topics. Our content is published on and made freely available through YouTube, as well as the channel’s official website. Parallel to our YouTube content, we produce written scholarly commentaries on our videos which, along with supplementary reading lists and study guides, are made available either through the channel’s official website and/or the third-party platform Patreon.

Armchair Academics exists to provide general audiences – and potential or current undergraduate students in the social sciences – with easy-to-understand, entertaining videos that demonstrate how social scientists approach and answer essential questions regarding culture, religion, and society
