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.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
