Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut with YouTube Playlist Dictionary to pull from the list of your Personal playlists in YouTube, letting you easily access just the non-work related playlists you’ve saved.

I find this useful for quickly digging into various personal interests I have that I otherwise forget to look into or get to in my queues.
