Throughout my undergraduate college years, I worked multiple jobs where I was able to sit down at a desk and work on different projects. As a person who struggles to only do one thing at a time, I needed to find something to listen to that differed from my typical music rotation. That is right around the time that Podcasts became quite popular for both Youtubers and other creators to use. Below are just some of my favorite podcasts. I have them categorized by how I came to find them.
Throughout my undergrad years, my roommates and I would watch the Bachelor series (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, Bachelor Winter Games). Throughout the series we found favorites and some of them have podcasts.
The first of these podcasts is the Your Favorite Things which is hosted by Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise Alum, Wells Adams, and Brandi Cyrus. This podcast does not always discuss Bachelor-related things, but instead discusses a random selection of, you guessed it, their favorite things!
The next of the podcasts is the, Almost Famous podcast with Ben and Ashley I., this podcast focuses primarily on the ins and outs of the Bachelor-world. This podcast is definitely for Bachelor-fanatics.
The final of the Bachelor Podcasts is the Off The Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe. Kaitlyn’s podcast focuses on creating a real environment and working with hollywood stars.
Gamers (This is a new one!)-
This podcast, Roaring Trainers is actually run by a few of my good friends from my time at UWGB. It is a real play
#dnd podcast set in the Pokémon world, Kanto in the Jazz age! It is a good listen for going on walks or just hanging out at home.
Other Podcast-Like Shows-
My final category is one that falls under the category of a podcast in my mind, but does not fall under the category of the sense that it done only in the audio world. Both The Truth About and ETO Podcasts are Youtube shows that follow the feel of podcasts, but also include a visual concept to them.
The Truth About is filmed and created by Niki DeMar, and focuses on sitting down with Youtubers and creating and honest and raw feeling about life behind the camera as a Youtuber. She created this series after coming clean on her channel about her struggles with an eating disorder. She is driven to fight the stigma of mental health and being able to keep a conversation going about how life is not perfect.
ETO Podcasts is created by a Youtuber named Sebastian Gomez. I stumbled upon his podcast videos because he was interviewing some of my personal favorite Youtubers. His goal with these podcast videos is to talk to people and hear more about their journeys.
In the End
Honestly, these podcasts are just some of the forms of entertainment I used to get through my undergraduate years, as well as continuing my education and career. Seeing other people create these podcasts inspires me to continue to create in my own way!
