All 34 Appetizing Episodes Of 'It's Alive With Brad,' Ranked

"It's Alive with Brad" is a series on Bon Appétit's Youtube channel that is hosted by their test kitchen manager, Brad Leone. As its title might imply "It's Alive" (generally) focuses on creating foods that are "alive" in a sense. They use the term alive pretty liberally. A lot of the episodes focus on fermentation, but there are also other subjects such as honey, oysters, salt, and even forging knives.

There are two main things I really enjoy about the series: the educational aspect, and the entertainment value. I would never think about watching a 10-minute video about making pickles, but not only do I do just that, I also end up watching another 40 minutes of videos about crabs, sausages, and knives. It just all flows so well.

What really surprised me was that this series was coming from Bon Appétit, which I really feel like it would be a little too persnickety for me. But, this series is extremely relatable and fun, even to someone who doesn't consider them a decent chef at all. I attribute this to Brad's hosting and how he admits mistakes and shows mishaps in his videos. He does most of the hosting alone, but references and converses with the silent cameraman, Vinny, quite often. I would say that the show wouldn't be the same without the dynamic between the two.

I'm waiting for Vinny to host an episode with Brad filming.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
