Hi! I love your videos. I am a social studies teacher in Hawaii. Can you make a video on Micronesian settlement in the United States? Or something along the lines of Pacific Islander populations. My student population are primarily Asian/pacific islanders and it would be so beneficial for them to be informed. Thank you.
Vox's videos are amazing and I could watch these productions forever. Their articles, on the other hand...

I didn't know where else to comment but thank you for making this Playlist. I just joined in March and it was a challenge to find some of the earliest Lab vids
Is there a way I can make them not happen? I'd pay for that

Sorry, guys, but I'm not up for this (even if I wanted to, because the service is not available in many countries outside the United States).

Whatever about €5 a month if I ever win the lottery i’ll be making a large anonymous donation to vox! This is the standard of content all publishers should aspire to! Iv put people on to this channel so often and it’s not just for the content, it’s the execution and delivery, to those backroom editors - great job guys

There is a political group in Spain also called Vox

Why ramen is so valuable in prison How to make more Vox videos happen 2 days ago   05:01

Instant ramen noodles have become like cash among inmates in the US.

Cash is illegal in prisons. And that means everything from tuna to stamps to cigarettes have their own unique value in a trade and barter market.

But ramen has quickly taken over as the most in demand products the prison system offers.

Watch this video to see how ramen took over prison economies and why it’s the default item for trade among inmates.

The Goods by Vox explains what we buy, why we buy it, and why it matters.
