    My love and admiration for this channel cannot be overstated! Kurzgesagt works hard on their content, and it shows. As a channel they do so many things right: from branding, to animation, to script writing, to narration, to fact checking, to product consistency - everything they do that goes into their videos, they do very well. I can’t think of a way it could be improved.
    Please keep up the good work!
