Subscribe to people - news, podcasts, YouTube

I just found out that Anand Shimpi who used to run and write for had a YouTube appearance I missed 8 months ago.

I’m wondering if people have good tools to get alerts when somebody they would like to track has a news story, or appears in a YouTube video, or a Podcast. I used to use google news alerts for this, but that only covers news and and can’t find the interface for it anymore. I’d like to track Anand, and also Brian Klug who also worked at Anandtech. Once I had this working for me again, I’d probably want to track more people.

Thanks in advance!
