Best Pop Culture YouTube Channels

It’s no secret that social media is already an inseparable part of our lives, shaping and reshaping pop culture. But social media is also a tool used to observe and comment on pop culture, especially in hindsight. Here are a few great pop-culture-related YouTube channels that may give you a new perspective on certain issues.

The Take

The Taker (formerly known as ScreenPrism) is a channel dedicated to video essays that analyze and deconstruct media tropes and phenomena. From delving into the inner workings of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl to discussing beloved shows and films like Freinds, Mad Men, The Devil Wears Prada, and Parasite, The Take proves there’s much more to pop culture than meets the eye.

The Tefi Show

The absolutely lovely and hilarious Estefania Pessoa, better known as Tefi, gives you all the celebrity gossip you ever wanted on her weekly youtube show. Tefi got her start in social media, and you can also find her on TikTok, where she does fascinating deep-dives into early 2000s pop culture.

Mila Tequila

If the early 2000s era is what you’re into, you will absolutely love Mila Tequila’s channel. The successful YouTuber makes long documentary-style videos explaining and dissecting iconic Y2K pop culture moments like the feud between Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan and the unraveling of The Hills.
