100+ Subreddits you should know about in 2021

Reddit 2021

I was recently talking with a friend and he asked me if I had any subreddits that I like and I remembered an old post I made from 2016, which has 15 subreddits. So I created a list of my 100 favorite subreddits for 2021.

In order to make this list more readable I grouped them in 8 generic categories:

  • Science
  • Nature
  • Society
  • Learning
  • Humour
  • Chaos
  • Awesome
  • Discussions
