Ever seen those 4 minute YouTube videos explaining history? Angelo hates them and he explains why. 

In this episode of Social Gelo with Angelo, Angelo goes over the psychology studies that marketing companies use to prepackage music and entertainment and how this hurts information such as historical events. In the notes you will find articles and podcasts that do a good job of presenting accurate information on history and other subjects. It takes longer than 4 minutes, so be warned, critical thinking will be required.
