"You don't even know what's there ... Finally, you click on the light and there's something interesting. And then it's like, oh, now I can go down that rabbit hole Miller's YouTube channel, which releases new food history videos every Tuesday, has taken him down a lot of interesting rabbit holes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MAB-VVqjOE (Medieval mead), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6XvMKdD2tY (500-year-old pizza), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaYPEvDuo1I (Aztec chocolate), and even https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR7fywQ-vUE (parmesan cheese ice cream) (a must-watch for his reaction to the end-of-episode taste test). On today's Follow Friday, he lets us into what he's watching and listening to in his limited downtime away from the kitchen: A https://www.youtube.com/c/CharlotteDobre/videos (reaction video star) with a knack for schadenfreude; a https://www.youtube.com/c/vsauce1/videos (charismatic nerd) who answers big questions with energy and science; a https://www.youtube.com/c/EarlyMusicSourcescom/videos (music scholar) who explains the history of the art; and a "boring in a good way" https://www.youtube.com/c/GrahamStephan/videos (finance expert) who taught Miller how to succeed on YouTube.
