What’s comedian and podcaster Kelsey Cook (’11 Comm.) listening to, and watching, during the COVID-19 pandemic? Here’s her list:
Middle of Somewhere—My favorite comedy podcast is hosted by two incredible comedians: Chad Daniels and Cy Amundson. Start from the beginning, and you’ll be hooked immediately.
Timesuck Podcast—This podcast is so hilarious and informative. Dan Cummins is one of my favorite comics and does a deep dive into everything from historical figures to serial killers to cults.
Approachable—We tell listeners of our podcast Self-Helpless that they’d likely be fans of Approachable, too. Samantha Ravndahl and Alyssa Anderson have such a great friendship and tackle tough topics in such a—wait for it—approachable way.
Not Another Cooking Show—Stephen Cusato’s cooking show on YouTube is a breath of fresh air from any other cookie-cutter Food Network show you’ve seen. The visuals are gorgeous, the food he cooks makes you say out loud “oh my goddd, I want that,” and he genuinely makes you want to get in the kitchen.
Girl Daddy—This is Beth Stelling’s comedy special on HBO Max. Beth is one of the funniest people out there, and I was so excited for her new special to come out. I watched it multiple times and can’t recommend it enough.
