starting Youtube channel, seeking hypothetical advice

Hello and Eid Mubarak ,

I used to post on DU a lot, but I haven't been around since the first Obama term. Nice to see you all.

I have some free time, so I'm considering starting a Youtube channel. My background is in law, politics, and I have a graduate degree in history. I have a particular interest in ethnic mass violence and authoritarianism. I also have a keen interest in science, especially astronomy, language, and skepticism. I have some hypothetical questions for media savvy people here.

The idea is to make videos about interesting subjects. Everything I say will include citations to the historical record or to the work of experts in their fields. There will be no "making stuff up." I want my show to be like the anti-Carlson. I want to debunk false ideas that so many assume to be true. Each show will be about interesting things generally, things that make people question their assumptions.

Hypothetically, there are some precautions I'm exploring. Basically, I don't want some super-rich asshole suing me because I called him a Nazi. SLAPP suits have no actual legal merit, but it still costs a lot to defend against one. I'm in Ohio, which has no anti-SLAPP laws. Again, hypothetically, what if one were to incorporate in California, which has an awesome anti-SLAPP law, and what if one were to "broadcast" from a CA VPN. I know no one here can give me legal advice, but hypothetically, what do you all think about that? I would still be in OH, and most of the vids would be shot here, though I travel, too. Any hypothetical, non-binding thoughts on this?
