This video lecture that I’ve linked down below has been made by Derek Banas, which is a well known name if you are following the programming scene on Youtube. He covers and gives lecures on a wide range of programming languages. He’s very famous for his multiple hour long crash courses in programming languages.

Similarly to this hour and change long video on Clojure that he made above, on his YouTube channel you can find similar videos on a wide range of programming languages. His lecture on Clojure is a great overview of the philosophy of Clojure, and gives you a great basic grasp of the basic mechanics of the language.
