Hi, I'm Tom Nicholas.

I make YouTube videos that explore the intersection of politics and culture.

Sometimes, this involves explaining complex ideas from cultural studies in my What the Theory? series. At others, it involves creating Video Essays focussing on topics as wide-ranging as the hollow futurist rhetoric of Elon Musk and the origins of the nation-state.

On this website, you can learn a little more about me, find out how to get in touch and browse exclusive content for Patreon supporters.
