History of Drugs
--explainer series for Professor Dave Explains content channel--
Professor Dave Explains is a YouTube channel belonging to David Farina. Dave taught Organic Chemistry at SCUHS, a trade university in the Los Angeles, CA area. To preserve some of his lectures, he recorded his presentations and put them up on YouTube. Due to the positive reaction he received from that, he continued on with basic chemistry lessons and started to add more animation to make the lectures more engaging and easier to understand. Roughly 10+ years later, the Professor Dave Explains channel has 1.22 million subscribers and prolific levels of content on science related topics.

Looking to take on more science related projects early in 2020 - I contacted Dave on a whim to see if he would be interested in collaborating. The History of Drugs was the result of that interaction!

This project is a 'Ken Burns' kind of documentary style with some animation depending on the content being described. The History of Drugs contains high level crash course lessons on the history of diseases and afflictions, and how we as humans theorized and treated those ailments up through ages.
