VCR: How To Adult teaches you all the things school didn’t

In this new series we’ll be picking out some of our favourite YouTube channels and letting you know why we think they’re so great. From advice on how to ace a job interview to relaxing videos to help you achieve total mindfulness, you’ll catch it all on the VCR (Video Channel Reviews) feature.

If, like us, you sometimes wonder at what point you will truly feel like a bonafide grown-up, then YouTube channel How To Adult is here to help.

The equally clueless (or so they think) pair of presenters, Emma Mills and T. Michael Martin, are experts at trotting out video upon video of useful tips and guides on how to do the important things that school never taught us, like how to get out tough stains and how to buy a car. Both vital life skills!


Who doesn’t need life advice from two of the friendliest faces on the Internet?

Apart from being downright hilarious, seeing a couple of other young people feeling as completely out of their depth as the rest of us do is hugely reassuring.

You’re also sure to learn a thing or two, whether it’s a new trick to make household chores that little bit easier, or something even more important, like filing your taxes correctly.
