Mind Field is a great edutainment show about human psychology. If you have YouTube Red, it's by far the best thing I've seen on the platform thus far and well worth the watch.
Mind field is mostly replicating and demonstrating famous concepts in human psychology, like how isolation influences the perception of time, or how people conform to the larger group even when they know the group is wrong. It is an incredibly fascinating series that takes VSauce's trademark style of mixing comedy with science, mathematics and philosophy that made him one of the largest educational channels on Youtube, and giving it a little extra budget.
Is Mind Field worth getting Red over? I'm not sure but I would consider it. I got Youtube Red because it came as a package with Google Play Music streaming, which I got as a replacement to Spotify. There isn't too much good or interesting on the Red platform yet IMO, but if you are interested in ad-free Youtube and music streaming for about $10 a month, than Mind Field is a great cherry on top of that deal.
Overall, Mind Field is a well made and fun show that, while not offering anything new to the scientific field per se, is a great way to introduce some psychological concepts to a wider audience.
