On 2020-10-01, a "behind the scenes" update made the app much cheaper to host, but the first new request of each day will take a while to load. If you get a blank page, try again in a few minutes.
On 2017-03-17, an update removed consideration for Computerphile, as suggested on H.I. #79: From Russia with Love

On 2015-01-06, an update added Brady's new channel, Objectivity.
On 2014-10-11, an update removed the consideration for Grey's second channel, CGPGrey2.
