Recently, I launched a new YouTube channel called The Modern Product Manager. The channel features content for Product Managers, startup people, and anyone interested in Tech.
I’ve started my channel by making videos of some of my most viewed, shared, and discussed Medium posts.

With The Modern Product Manager, you’ll learn from Alex Mitchell’s insider startup and product perspective and get…www.youtube.com
As part of my channel set up, I watched A LOT of YouTube videos and subscribed to a LOT of channels on Product Management.
This post features the channels I’ve found most helpful and think Product Managers of all levels (including aspiring PMs) would learn a lot from too.
So check out these channels below and level up as a PM (or find your path into the career).
Top Channels For PMs (Of All Levels)
1. Product School
Why I Like It: The Product School has clearly invested heavily in their YouTube channel! Their channel features many of their onsite events including ProductCon and they are consistently releasing new content.
Subscribe to their channel and you’ll definitely learn a thing or two (at least!) about Product, I know I did.

2. The Modern Product Manager
**Self-Promotion Alert! — The writer of this blog post also manages this channel**
Why I Like It: While the Product School features many talks by different Product Managers in recorded onsite events, The Modern Product Manager features deep dives by Alex Mitchell into individual concepts like:
- 7 Habits of a Highly Effective Product Manager
- The Different Types of Product Managers
- Product + Growth: Better Together

3. Mind the Product
Why I Like It: Similar to Product School, MTP features great content from all of their (formerly) in-person events. You’ll enjoy their very high-quality speakers like Marty Cagan and battlefield stories from dozens of different Product Managers.

Why I Like It: Most of ProductPlan’s videos are about how to use their product, but I like their other videos featuring very simple breakdowns of common Product Management terms and concepts.
They also have a few great “Product Leader Spotlights” that will help you better understand what the career of Product Management is really like!

7. Product Gym
Why I Like It: The Product Gym exists to help established and emerging PMs land more interviews and more jobs. They work with Product candidates and arm them with the insights they need to win the job.
Their content is oriented heavily around PM applications, interviews, case studies, and offers. If you’re in this stage of your Product career, they’ll be extremely helpful!

8. Dan Chuparkoff
Why I Like It: Dan has spoken on Product Management and Data Science at SXSW and his content is very detail-rich. If you’re looking to get down into the details for how to use JIRA, How to Ignite the Power of Teams, or learning what makes a product “Disruptive,” his channel is for you.

Why I Like It: Although Slidebean’s business isn’t Product Management, they have a ton of entertaining and popular content on startups, funding, and presentation/pitch ideas.
Product Managers are always learning, presenting, and evangelizing, so you’ll definitely find Slidebean’s content very helpful.

Why I Like It: The Productized Conference is an annual gathering of Product Leaders and thousands of current and aspiring Product Managers.
I was fortunate to be able to speak at the conference in 2016 and had a great experience, where I learned a lot from others. Productized regularly posts compelling content on YouTube that Product Managers of all levels can benefit from.
