There’s a YouTube channel for nearly any interest—even the ones you didn’t know you had. The video-sharing hub’s embarrassment of riches can be overwhelming, making it hard to know exactly where to start.

Whether you want to follow a seasoned explorer as they travel the world, find a new hairstyle to wear to work, or learn how to cook those mouthwatering dishes from your favorite movies and TV shows, this list has something for everyone. It’s not a compilation of the most popular and highest-paid YouTube celebrities, but rather a selection of engrossing channels curated and ranked by TIME’s tech writers, ranging from stylish cooking to quirky comedy, video game peculiarities and more.

Our goal is simple: to help you navigate YouTube’s countless channels, and hopefullly find some of the site’s novelties you might otherwise have missed.
