What are the top voiceover youtube channels? The channels that you turn to for the best sources of information, education and information for voiceover. Well, that’s the controversial murky water that I find myself swimming in right now. Anytime you use the words top or best to describe anything, you are bound to open pandora’s box. The level of nays can be just as loud as the yays. But as a lover of Youtube University, I find myself looking for the best channels to inspire and inform me on what’s happening in the voiceover industry.
Over the years, there have been many channels and talent who have utilized Youtube as a way of getting out their message, producing content, and expanding their brand awareness. Sure, there are other outlets to do that, but Youtube is the second-largest search platform in the world. So when people search for the top anything voiceover, the top voiceover Youtube channels will appear right there with their google search.
The problem comes with disagreements. Over the years, I have heard the mumblings of personality conflicts and staunch disagreements with the methodology and teachings of certain VO Youtubers. Some have argued that anyone teaching and encouraging the use of Fiverr to “newbies” don’t have our best interest as an industry at heart. And these kinds of disagreements turn people off to certain Voiceover Youtube channels. I get it. But I also get that change is dolorous and that regardless of disagreements, the popularity and relevance of the VO Youtubers making these videos cannot be ignored.
How I Decided Which Were The Top Voiceover Youtube Channels
I had to create criteria. What’s the best way to go about this? I decided that the age of a channel, consistency of uploads, value to its viewers, and entertainment value and how well-known the channel is, would be how I decided. I also decided to list them in random order so as not to seem to express biases toward or against. Still, there is some subjectivity even in the criteria that could still open itself up to criticism (and me). Still, in good faith, I decided to give it a shot with the disclaimer that these are not mostly recommendations but acknowledgments that these channels have all come across my radar.
