11 YouTube Trivia Shows to Watch if You Want to Get Smarter

The days of searching for answers on the internet have transformed. While Google remains a classic platform for finding answers, there is another that has come to challenge its reign. YouTube, once known mostly for its silly cat videos, has become a source of Trivia and learning for many. Whether it be makeup techniques, how to build a table, or why the grass is green – YouTube has both an answer and a visual to match.

With that in mind, we thought we’d round up some of our favorite YouTube channels dedicated to spreading the wealth of Trivia knowledge across various topics. From history to chemistry and everything in between, these channels cover it all.

Who Was Leif Erikson, Anyway?

Columbus Day, or more aptly Indigenous Peoples’ Day in recent times, comes around each year. We’re widely taught that he is the first European to set foot on North America. However, what many don’t know is that there is someone else who technically set foot on North America hundreds of years before Columbus.

Enter: sort-of viking explorer, Leif Erikson. He was a leader and icon for many Scandinavians well past his time (and also notably doesn’t have a troubling history with treatment of the indigenous population of America). So it begs the question: Why are we celebrating Columbus Day instead of Leif Erikson Day? Yes, this is a real holiday; it’s not simply a made up holiday briefly mentioned in an episode of Spongebob Squarepants.
