About

My name is John D Ruddy and I need your support! I have been making the animated YouTube series Manny Man Does History for years and I have covered many many topics so far including Wolrd Wars 1&2, The Cold War, The American Civil War, the American, French, and Russian Revolutions! They're a great quick and easy overview to either introduce you to a topic or quickly revise it.
I have set up a second channel, John D Ruddy Does Stuff, to explore more content not necessarily connected directly to history. On it, I have been giving hot takes on new TV shows, playing through retro video games and producing podcasts such as Niallson & Johnson: Nerds at Law, where me and my good friend Niall McDonagh talk about the nerdy things that we love from Marvel, to Star Wars to Tolkien and beyond, and the Peadar O’Donnell Pod-cast, where Peadar explores, in his own quirky ways, the madness of the modern world, from internet culture, climate change, LGBTQ+ topics, feminism, white privilege and all the fun stuff, featuring interviews with special guests as the show goes on! I also plan on producing audiobooks for you to enjoy too!
As you have seen, YouTube isn’t always the most reliable of places for steady income and it can be very difficult to continue producing all of this content. The Manny Man history videos are very labour intensive as each video contains hundreds of illustrations which I hand draw. I want to continue to making this content. I love it, and I love sharing it all with you.

By pledging $1 per month, you will have access to exclusive livestreams which I will be hosting at least 1 per month.
