About History Matters


What is History Matters? Why do you do this?

History Matters (formerly Ten Minute History) is a YouTube channel which provides free, educational history videos for use by interested viewers, students and teachers alike. Each episode uses adorable (if I do say so myself) historical characters to tell the most interesting parts of human history in a way that's easy to understand for those that don't have a degree in history. The content covered is broad and not always easy to understand which is why I've taken to making it accessible.

The reason I do this is because I've spoken to many teachers who feel that there is a lack of (free) online material to support history education. Since I'm able to address that, I will.

Why do you need a Patreon?

Each episode requires a sizeable time commitment as well as an investment towards books for research. The money from the Patreon will be used primarily for these books and sometimes computer equipment (backup hard drives, software, etc.) and to further increase the range of content.
