I am happy to announce that the James Randi Educational Foundation has been granted a nonprofit channel on YouTube. The JREF's YouTube channel is already the 10th most subscribed nonprofit channel of all time!
We will now be able to post full-length videos in their entirety, including panels and presentations from The Amaz!ng Meeting, rather than being limited to short ten-minute clips. We will be moving our existing collection of videos into the channel, to help us reach new audiences on YouTube with more exciting content, broadening the reach of our work to promote skepticism and critical thinking. The first two full-length videos from TAM 2011 have just been posted, including the important and popular talk by the JREF's Sadie Crabtree.
In addition, this is where we will be posting episodes of our new project The Randi Show, featuring James Randi and JREF Field Coordinator Brian Thompson. Watch the first episode on YouTube.
The JREF's videos have been watched on YouTube more than 5 million times, and our channel currently has nearly 40,000 subscribers. If you're not a subscriber yet, visit our channel and click subscribe to get the latest videos from the JREF.
I hope you enjoy the videos JREF provides online for free, and that you share them with others who may benefit from our work to combat unreason and provide the public with reliable information about extraordinary claims.
D.J. Grothe is president of the James Randi Educational Foundation.
