Description

Grounded in the topics that distract host Kate Kennedy (entrepreneur, author, pop culture commentator) on a daily basis, Be There in Five explores all facets of popular culture in a thoughtful, analytical, editorialized, and comedic format. Kate covers a wide range of topics reflecting the current zeitgeist, i.e. celebrities, bloggers/influencers, social media, and tv/moves/music, but also focuses on the humor found in reexamining the 90s/00s zeitgeist as an adult, from AIM to Zenon. Whether musing about how so many 24-year-old bloggers have 5 kids and millions of dollars, poking holes in popular self-help gurus advice, deep diving about influencer/social media scandals, or explaining Taylor Swift's clue-dropping marketing strategy, Kate aims to dive into the topics everyone's talking about in chat rooms that don't get represented in newsrooms. (And by chat rooms, she realizes it's not 1999, but it sounded more quippy than online forums and Facebook groups). Beyond the more lighthearted topics, Kate is also a seasoned entrepreneur (of her namesake company Be There in Five) who is honest about her struggles in real-time and invites her listeners along as she, too, is trying to make it as a 30 something living in Chicago. Above all else, Kate started this podcast to champion lovers of pop culture by taking the guilt out of guilty pleasures. By speaking about the zeitgeist in an intelligent, unique, and humorous way, she hopes to assure listeners that these topics have value, contribute to society, and the only naïve people are those who refuse to acknowledge their influence.

Laura recently wrote a 'guidebook to life-giving conversations for deeper relationships' that is designed to help you identify unique details and anecdotes from your own life and cultivate genuine connections with others. These connections, of course, can only be made if you do one thing first: share your stuff. Kate and Laura talk about a variety of things, from her upbringing, to her time in the mom blogging world, to why people aren't comfortable sharing, ot the importance of going deeper with friendships, to church camps, magical moments, examples from her book, Troop Beverly Hills, and more!

Cheugy School Dropout
02:29:00

This week, Kate takes on a new term, "cheugy," a made-up word from Tiktok that, via aggressive media coverage, has been thrust into the social lexicon. This episode examines the struggle between being lighthearted/letting comedy exist and the diversity that lies within financial security of millennials that is often forgotten when slinging semi-classist tropes. She dives into the definition of cheugy, attempting to validate the concept of being 'off-trend' by examining which items named were actual trends, and if this legitimately is a term that would be fairly applied across genders and social classes. Fearing the reincarnation of society's love for terms like 'basic,' Kate argues why there is millennial sensitivity to the early 2010s trends, and what Pinterest, bloggers, early influencers, etc. did for women. And as a result, the ways in which their entrepreneurial efforts are often dismissed in favor of mocking their hobbies. TLDR, it's cheugy as hell.

What Would Jesus Brew?
02:25:00

In this episode, Kate does an unforeseen spinoff mini dive into something that wasn't on her radar until recently: highly instagrammable shake/smoothie/tea/coffee shops that are secretly tied to an MLM. With data showing that these 'nutrition shops' lose thousands annually, they have widely become known to be a covert recruiting tactic for Herbalife that are posing as mom & pop shops in small towns and cities alike. With minimalistic branding, instagram-friendly backdrops, little to no ingredient transparency (but appealing drink names), friendly staff, and financial incentives to share on social media, these storefronts provide all the ingredients for the thing Kate hates the most: a manipulative enterprise that preys on vulnerable people in the name of help, nutrition, religion, success, or any abstract characteristic that a person is both unqualified to make and deceptive in their solutions. At one point there is a tangent into numerology & Pythagorus’ (of pythagorean theorem fame, obv) cult, but, par for the course on this show. Kate also reads e-mails from listeners who wrote in to spill the tea they once unknowingly drank. Enjoy!

02:28:00

Part 2: Rachel Hollis & the Rose-Colored Glass Ceiling (the Venn Diagram)
02:21:00

In this (now) trilogy exploring the world of self-help 'mogul' Rachel Hollis, Kate reads a handful of listener emails and walks through the 4-part Venn diagram she's been building since October, mapping the similarities between cults, conservative religions, multi-level marketing schemes, and large-scale self-help gurus that hold conferences like Rachel Hollis and her former 'hero,' Tony Robbins (remember, "I own you?"). In the first hour, Kate reads emails while analyzing Rachel's RISE conference and how the format compares to historical examples of known manipulative marketing strategies (e.g. low-key mind control). She walks through the psychological tactics tied to her former 'hero,' like aggressively teaching psychotherapeutic concepts in his favor (reframing, limited beliefs), resurrecting trauma, using NLP, hosting LGATs, etc. After many listeners reached out asking for more time to write in, she decided she'd air this episode first, but part 3 will be all e-mails. Overall, Kate's exploring her hypothesis that she can link many large-scale self-help & motivational speakers to being deeply rooted in some form of hybrid MLM/evangelical preaching/self-development movement, that when used for nefarious reasons can turn into cults, but best case turn into snake oil empires making professional manipulators and paraphrasers into multimillionaires at the expense of our mental health, preying on generations of vulnerable people who are being told (and sold) that they are 'Made for More.'

Part 1: Rachel Hollis & The Rose-Colored Glass Ceiling
02:25:00

A Rachel Hollis deep dive. In this episode, Kate dives into the recent controversy surrounding the self-help empire of Rachel Hollis, who is a wildly successful motivational speaker, podcast host, CEO of Rise (and formerly HollisCo), among other things, but is probably most well-known for being the author of NYT best sellers "Girl, Wash Your Face" and "Girl, Stop Apologizing." Kate starts with analysis of the troubling dialogue and caption of her now-deleted video and also now-deleted first apology last week. Then, she discusses the problem with "made for more" culture, especially in the context of the RISE conference and support of the MLM industry that preys on vulnerable people via her prosperity gospel-adjacent business coaching. Then Kate talks through her journey with what she's found troubling about Hollis' content, detailing how she thinks it fits in the broader 2010s self-help zeitgeist of #girlboss culture, and shares her journey in how these movements have shaped her view of feminism and empowerment. In the second episode, Kate will read more listener-submitted emails, wanting to give her take so she can open up the floor to give her yours. Please submit any feedback, stories of being in the RH fandom, or thoughts on women's self-help to podcast@bethereinfive.com subject line RH. All opinions in this episode are of Kate Kennedy’s or listeners that submitted emails to Be There in Five Podcast.

Warm Vanilla Sugar High
02:00:00

 This week, Kate snorkels through a variety of topics, with the core theme being overlooked and/or forgotten internet drama. She discusses Cinnamon Toast Crunch gate, sexism in Consumer Packaged Goods, talks about the role of cancel culture in the Bible, meanders through music with her favorite SAT words, talks about how you know influencers have 'made it,' then dives into one of her favorite internet communities: Candle Culture. From funny/forgotten candle rant youtubers, to her perceptions of Bath & Body Works vs. Yankee Candle vs. Dyptique, to the impact of COVID on the candle industry, aggressive reviews, pretentious descriptions and more -- it's safe to say Kate spends a lot of time *waxing* poetic in this candle-forward episode. She also talks about one of her favorite stories that yielded an exciting period of internet mystery and drama surrounding an epic pop star catfish. Overall, fun, lighthearted, and hopefully fast moving-- Enjoy!

02:00:00

This week, Kate has the pleasure of being joined by one of her favorite microinfluencers and women's health advocates, Ailsa Emmel from @_happygocurly_. Ailsa and Kate talk about so many topics, from the ups and downs of instagram, to how she got started, to women's health Wednesday, cancel culture, Kate's fears about childbirth, sex ed, and more. Since Ailsa is a Certified Nurse Midwife, a large majority of this conversation is dedicated to discussing women's health, being open about our bodies, and learning more about Ailsa's experience spending her days with different women in some of their most vulnerable moments. Kate loved this episode and conversation and hopes you do too!

This week, Kate does a continuation of last week's episode (Pussycat Dull) since more listeners submitted their tales of cringeworthy attempts to make their crush jealous. They somehow keep getting better. In between stories many of Kate's own anecdotes and insights are shared, from her being cast as a Valley Girl to a broader discussion of sexism in how women are judged for the way they speak. There's also discussions of things like the 00s 'mean girl' culture, a revisiting of Why Men Love Bitches, an argument for not striving for effortlessness, and an update on Childless Millennial, to name a few.

Pussycat Dull
02:15:00

This week, Kate reads from listener-submitted stories about the embarrassing (and now hilarious) ways in our youth that we tried to make people jealous and/or acutely aware of how well we're doing following a romantic rejection. From the classic "sorry wrong IM" all the way to a full John Tucker Must Die reenactment, these stories represent the good, the bad, and the delightfully cringy of Livin La Vida Four Loko in the mid-2000s. But first, Kate discusses some broader thoughts on mid-aughts media & pop culture and how it influenced her 'hot girl' days, then her sister Kelly joins her to discuss her participation in an MLM, Valentine's stories, myspace, and more; followed by the two peppering in their bad dating stories as they listen through listeners' quests to go from dull to Pussycat Doll in peak "Don't Cha" culture.

TW: Mention of EDs, body image discussion

This week, Kate has a conversation with Erin Heatherton, a former Victoria's Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated model (among other things) who now lives in Chicago after having stepped back from the spotlight. She's now crushing it as an entrepreneur and somehow befriended Kate along the way, so they recorded a heart to heart about not only Erin's life and career but also about body image, problematic beauty standards, doing Ayahuasca, being in VS shows, dealing with depression, getting back to her roots, and so much more.

Look Who's Tokking Now
02:10:00

It's been one year since Kate begged her listeners to start talking the 'Tok, and on this episode, Kate follows up on her original TikTok deep dive to update everyone on what's happened in the past year. She broadly discusses the big trends, cringy dance moves, obscure subcultures, roller coaster legislation, favorite follows, etc., but also dives into specifics about some of the app's biggest stars. She discusses the trajectory of the D'Amelios, Addison Rae, The Hype House, Sway House, and even does an accidental (and kinda successful?) deep dive into Bella Poarch's mysterious background, among other things. Enjoy!

Hun For The Money (MLM & Insta Coaching Deep Dive)
02:30:00

This week, Kate takes on the Venn diagram of Instagram “life coaches,” self-help gurus, manifesting babes, and multi-level marketing #girlbosses that peddle the (often) false hope of financial freedom and entrepreneurial dreams through uncomfortable emoji-laden texts and Facebook messages. She discusses the problem with influencers selling one-size-fits-all solutions based on their anecdotal business experience and then reads crowd sourced stories from listeners who have been on the receiving end of MLM and entrenprenHERial outreach.

I Just Believe in Parties!
02:10:00

This week, Kate couldn’t help but wonder if influencers who refuse to acknowledge issues important to their following are perhaps still hung up on that time Samantha Jones (RIP) said she doesn't believe in the Republican or Democratic party, she just believes in parties!!! This episode (outside of comparing influencers that are unwilling to engage in substantive discussions to decorative cocktail napkins) is a mostly serious stream of consciousness about the discussion surrounding influencers' responses to the attempted coup that took place at the US Capitol January 6th. Similar to previous episodes surrounding COVID and social injustice, Kate details how she approaches politically adjacent topics as both an influencer and observer, talks about what she (and other listeners) have said they think are non-negotiables, explores the nuance of how and why people choose not to engage, the implications of not doing so, and the importance of consistency in values-driven content going forward. There's probably an Emily in Paris or Turtle Freak Lane rant in there somewhere too? She can't help herself. Enjoy!

Somewhere Hungover the Rainbow
01:45:00

This week, Kate’s feeling metaphorically hungover from 2020 and is providing you some hot takes on a cold January night for a distraction in an ever-chaotic world. Recorded prior to (and cut off due to) the events today in DC, this episode includes discussions about:

Neighborhoods trying the hardest to sound rich
Turtle Creek Lane’s new Mercedes
Kim & Kanye’s divorce
Freckled Fox’s separation
A mini deep dive of SimplySuzys' Instagram bait-and-switch
Are Instagram growth coaches the new MLM?
A review of Meghan & Harry’s new podcast
A Portrait of The Artist of a Young Woman in 2011
A snorkel about money laundering via fine art donation
A Pinterest tangent that’s cut short when she finds out about DC and then abruptly ends the episode.

Enjoy-- and hang in there.

A fireside heart to heart via a double episode to keep you company through the end of 2020! In this episode, Kate recorded a holiday heart to heart, asking listeners what questions/topics they'd want to discuss if they were sitting down for dinner together. From wine selection at a dinner party, to what her experience has been like with other podcasters, what she'd say if she met TS, advice for those who are single, to hearing more about her husband and family, what she'd teach her younger self, Christmas traditions, and more, Kate opens up about a variety of new topics. Here's to Better Days in 2021!

Evermore than you bargained for (bonus)
02:00:00

In this bonus episode, Kate was trying to do a "quick recap" of all of the discussion and mystery surrounding Taylor Swift's 9th studio album’s surprise release. However, it is not quick and recap might be a generous word since she felt like she hasn't listened enough to go song-by-song. Yet she still manages to talk about it for like, evermore, and shares her observations surrounding this album, e.g. the comparisons to folklore, the theories leading up to (and the theories following) the sister album's release, the potential trilogy, the Woodvale of it all, the easter eggs, the weird TikTok theories, literary references, some of her favorite lyrics/themes/callbacks, her general interest in mystical witchlike subcultures, and then talks about Champagne Problems for way too long. Enjoy?

Destiny's Inner Child
02:30:00

In this nostalgic deep dive, Kate details her “main character” moments throughout life, AKA moments her hyper sensitive nature and her obsession with pop culture perfectly intersected to produce fake emo song scored movie scenes in her head. Join her as she reviews memories from her recently discovered journals when she was dramatically, if not disproportionately, reacting to very normal adolescent situations, from youth group, to celeb sightings, hook up culture, a Twilight phase, frat parties, study abroad, getting ready culture, all the way to ultimately culminating with an earth-shattering heartbreak at a certain fast casual eatery. She then reads from her journals from her religious phase and explores how her emotional and spiritual evolution led her to this very moment. Enjoy!

Good Will (Bowery) Hunting: Folklore Studio Sessions Deep Dive
02:30:00

This week, Kate reports live from an unforeseen all-nighter following Taylor Swift’s surprise Folklore Studio Sessions release on Disney+. This holiday season is lonely enough as is, so Kate decided to do an unpolished reaction podcast in hopes of getting it out quickly so no one’s watching alone. If you don’t have Disney+, that’s ok, Kate will give you the scoop about what she said about the album’s creation, inspiration, notable lyrics, and most of all… her revealing of the identity of the elusive pseudonym William Bowery. Kate can’t help herself and peppers in commentary about Taylor’s home decor, as well as irrelevant things like the movie Center Stage and the illicit affair that occurs within The Pina Colada Song, so, you know. Something for everybody? Or maybe nobody? Hard to say, she’s tired.

Are You There God? It's Me, at Target.
02:30:00

This week, Kate asked listeners what they'd like to be distracted by on election day and listeners submitted a wide range of meaningless topics that are perfect meaningful discussions to listen to while we all do a whole lot of waiting. Whether you are waiting in line at the polls or waiting for results to come in, Kate is honored to keep you company via this one-take unedited casual stream of solo consciousness. Please go vote and remember many locations still take registrations on election day!!

She will fill topics in the description later, Kate hasn't listened back to it since she just decided to do this and is not totally sure what's in here. She recalls explaining a strategy she's planned out for how to win Jeopardy, telling stories about bad roommates, dissecting different types of plaid, ranking celebrity veneers, and at one point she does map which Gilmore Girls character best represents each Taylor Swift album after explaining each era of Taylor Swift's hair evolution, so there's that. Enjoy & take care of yourself!

For this bonus episode, Kate is joined by Kate Casey (from the popular podcast Reality Life with Kate Casey) to discuss the future of reality TV, what it's like interviewing show insiders, her favorite docuseries/documentaries, Bravo, and many other topics. They also go deeper into HBO Max's The Vow, since Kate (Casey) has interviewed several subject matter experts on the NXIVM cult and has interesting insight into the motive of the cult's infamous leader. The other episode about The Vow came out earlier today so listen to both if you want the full scoop! Enjoy!

Deep Dive: Cults, NXIVM, and HBO's The Vow
02:15:00

This week, Kate has two slightly different episodes that discuss topics related to HBO Max's hit series about the NXIVM "celebrity sex cult," The Vow. In this deep dive, Kate is solo and focuses on the psychological tactics used in the NXIVM cult and compares them to self-help gurus, religious organizations, and MLMs through discussion of the BITE model, Neuro-linguistic programming, and other facets of mind control. She also tells a semi-relevant story about why she got super into researching more about cults over the weekend after a spooky trip. This topic is a little- nay, a lot - outside of Kate's wheelhouse so forgive her for any clunkiness, however, she wanted to explore the 'whys' of how people got themselves into this criminal organization under the guise of professional development. The next episode (will be out soon) is a lighthearted conversation with Kate Casey from the popular podcast Reality Life With Kate Casey where they discuss The Vow (before Kate had finished it) and have a few different conversations surrounding reality TV and various docuseries. Enjoy!

Childless Millennial (Part I)
02:30:00

This week, Kate gets vulnerable and discusses what no one wants from a childless millennial: opinions about the prospect of parenting, pregnancy, and motherhood. Rather than provide anything conclusive, she opts for a stream-of-consciousness approach about being at an age where decisions need to be made, feeling ill-equipped to make those decisions, and the implications of social media #momlife on her perceptions of motherhood. She also explores the impossible paradox of being at your career's height amidst your fertility's alleged decline and has an honest discussion about her fears for herself and her own mental health. After discussing this briefly on Instagram, Kate received hundreds of DMs from women at all different phases of their lives who inspired her to do this episode. The point is not to provide an unwanted opinion, but to allow women at any stage of this incredibly important life transition to be allowed to have a voice. At the end, she reads through her DMs to share the meaningful input people wrote to her that helped her feel better by showing a more realistic depiction of parenting outside of the harrowing hashtags. She understands this topic is sensitive, deeply personal, and easily spoken about incorrectly. But more important than being right, she wants you all to feel alright, and figured the first step toward overcoming this anxiety is to talk about it. Enjoy!

PER MY LAST EMAIL

This week, per last Friday's Instagram story, Kate takes on the realities of women in the workforce and the [at times] hilarities of being in the corporate world. From business casual attire, e-mail passive aggression, and corporate jargon all the way to listeners' examples of gender coded condescension, she attempts to describe the issues women face at work through a comedic and analytic lens. Please advise.
Warmest regards,
Kate

Bonus: Harry & Meghan (Finding Freedom Book Review with Merritt Beck)
02:45:00

This week's bonus episode is a conversation with BTI5 royal correspondent Merritt Beck (@merrittbeck, The Style Scribe) about Omid Scobie's book that details Harry & Meghan's time in the spotlight, "Finding Freedom." They discuss what stood out to them in each phase of their relationship, from the courtship, engagement, wedding, and baby to ultimately stepping down as working royals. Did Kate & Merritt think it was an accurate portrayal? Did they need all these elaborate descriptions of food? Do they believe Meghan *really* wasn't involved in perhaps the most flattering book of all time?

Note: Kate decided to upload the long uncut version, so this is longer than usual, but she assumed more is more when it comes to royal enthusiasts. Enjoy!

She also discusses Mormon homesteader bloggers, finding out Twilight was written by an LDS author, and ex-Mormon whistleblowers, among other things. Enjoy!

Fingertip Lengthy
02:05:00

This week, Kate takes on all different types of dress codes. After seeing a meme about how nothing brings women together quite like an unclear dress code, she was inspired to go through confusing and specific wedding/event dress codes, i.e. snappy casual, that coincidentally make her want to casually snap at the host. After going through some examples of listeners' unclear dress codes submitted on Instagram, she switches gears to discuss school dress codes and the unfair double standards upheld in their enforcement. She explores modern dress codes in different areas, discusses the implications of authority figures' commentary on adolescent women's bodies, the emphasis they imply on male education, and talks through some of the shockingly discriminatory language found in many dress codes. After that, she finishes off the episode by reading listener-submitted stories with her sister Kelly, about both school and wedding dress code mishaps. Enjoy!

Taylore
02:30:00

This week, Kate deep dives into Taylor Swift's surprise 8th studio album: Folklore. This album has everything; cardigans, soothing somber melodies, indie-rock flair, clandestine meetings and stolen stares. She walks through her favorite lyrics, the standout themes, the [somewhat limited, relatively speaking] Easter Eggs we know about, among many other Taylore-related tangents. In this podforsaken mess of an episode, she also meanders through what she deems to be the broader symbolism of the concept of folklore at this point in her career, how it ties to Miss Americana, and how this album is somehow both the most and least 'her' thing all at the same time. In lieu of a part 2, this episode is extra lengthy and detailed by design for those of you that are looking for a friend to talk TS with while social distancing. The devil's in the details, but you've got a friend in me :) Enjoy!

Bonus: Indian Matchmaking (with Aparna Shewakramani)
01:50:00

This week, Kate sits down with Aparna Shewakramani, the breakout star of Netflix's hit show Indian Matchmaking, to discuss all things reality tv, matchmaking, first dates, strategic editing, double standards, and of course, Bolivian Salt Flats. She provides really insightful context in terms of the origin of the show, the actual dialogue that happened on the dates (pre-editing), and her experience (so far) emerging as a polarizing character. Does she really hate beaches and comedy? Find out all that and more on this week's episode!

It's Britney, Beth (Side B)
02:15:00

Kate discusses the #FreeBritney movement with Rebecca Grant, a licensed probate attorney who is a subject matter expert on conservatorships. Kate aims to further understand why Britney's situation is so unique and at times, suspicious. Additionally, she fact checks of a lot of the questions she has about the speculation, memes, and twitter threads. For example: What can and can't a conservator force her to do? Is she being forced to work? Why can't she hire her own attorney? Why would they check the dementia box for a 26-year-old woman? How is she, now 38, still in this incredibly restrictive conservatorship and deemed to be incapacitated, yet appear to work, tour, rehearse, run an empire, etc. successfully?

It's Britney, Beth (Side A)
02:00:00

A #FreeBritney deep dive covering the career and conservatorship of the inimitable Britney Jean Spears. This week, Kate takes on a highly requested and unbelievably layered topic, the #FreeBritney movement. Side A contains the discussion of a lot of the speculation, memes, and twitter threads, along with a full timeline from 1999; side B (will be posted a bit later) is a recorded conversation Kate had with an incredible licensed probate attorney (Rebecca Grant) who will help her deep dive into the nature of a probate conservatorship. Understandably, there’s a big piece of info that’s sealed about this case, so everything is speculation, but they’ll fact check the theories discussed in the first episode and answer the big questions to the best of their ability. For example: What can and can't a conservator force her to do? Is she being forced to work? Why can't she hire her own attorney? Why would they check the dementia box for a 26-year-old woman? How is she, now 38, still in this incredibly restrictive conservatorship and deemed to be incapacitated, yet appear to work, tour, rehearse, run an empire, etc. successfully?

Crack an egg on your head, let the yolk run down
02:15:00

This week, you're invited to a virtual bridal shower where Kate reads listeners' funny and cringy stories from our favorite parties where we watch people act SHOCKED to open gifts that they've already picked out. Instead of mourn the absence of these important milestone events, Kate wanted to celebrate them and get excited for their return by reflecting on things like all the off-registry gifts you also wish you could return. She also discusses her fear of women's khakis making a comeback, reflects on the pile of clothing she swears she'll sell on Poshmark, pleads to resist the return of low rise denim, talks through some of her country music conspiracies, and then muses about her happy place: a mid-afternoon luncheon at your godmother's house in the suburbs where the weird compliments about your 'figure' are as prevalent as the soggy Costco pinwheels and ambitiously bite-sized Caprese skewers. Enjoy!

Housewives & Hollywood (with Garcelle Beauvais)
01:54:00

This week, Kate is lucky enough to be joined by actress, model, host, author, and new Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Garcelle Beauvais to talk all things housewives, reality tv, getting discovered, her incredible Hollywood career, her book series, Gen Z parenting, pivoting to housewives, dramatic RHOBH moments this season, and more! Kate also does her own RHOBH recap then discusses recent current events before and after the episode because she can't get over what's going on with Naya Rivera, the Hype House drama, and the [kinda solvable??] Unsolved Mysteries. A little bit of something for everyone, just like the menu at Buca di Beppo: Encino.

Who Ls, Who Ds, Who Ts Your S?! (New Hamilton Deep Dive)
02:15:00

This week (in a different version of her deep dive than the one that is on Patreon), Kate decided she wanted to contribute further to the hype of the pop cultural phenomenon that is Hamilton to celebrate the release of the original cast album's performance on Disney+ this Friday. This deep dive includes a discussion on the themes, symbols, motifs, and broader cultural impact of the play as a whole, but only dives into the songs of Act I to give people a baseline understanding of what's going on. Act II will still be released on Patreon as planned, but Kate felt that she needed to update her opinions of what the show means to her and how she connects it to modern day as we reflect on our country's founding on the heels of Independence Day. Happy 4th, be safe, wear a mask, and raise a glass to freedom :)

The (Gen) Zequel
02:00:00

This week, Kate dives into the recent 180 people have done in terms of their opinion of Gen Z. Now being labeled as activists, heroes, and vigilantes, it’s clear that on this pod we need to clarify that we’ve come a long way from Tide Pods and continue the conversation we started during the episode “We Need to Tok.” Beyond discussing a little more about the psychographic characteristics that define Gen Z and how they relate to Millennials, she also formally responds to Gen Z’s recent roasting of Millennials on Twitter & TikTok. Then, she dives into Gen Z’s political activism and role in the recent Trump rally, explains K-pop’s involvement with social causes and the power of leveraging their stan-dom for causes beyond boy bands, while also exploring the other side of the story as it relates to issues of racism within a fandom that’s largely being heralded for fighting racism. Enjoy!

Influence in the Time of Social Injustice (with Jessie Bernhardt)
02:25:00

This week, Kate has Jessie Bernhardt on the podcast to discuss influence in the time of social injustice. Not only the response of influencers and the responsibility of having a platform, but also the importance of factoring in our own influence in our daily lives. They discuss the disparity of the response relative to other Black Lives Matter efforts, the responsibility of influencers in combatting social injustice, the importance of sharing, elevating (and tagging!) Black creators, a couple of the influencer scandals, and overall how we can be more inclusive in the workplace and in our daily lives.

Seriously, she's going to talk about this for two more hours? Yes, yes she is. This is a deep dive, after all. The first podcast on the Call Her Daddy podcast drama was released before we had ever heard from Alex, and now we have twice, and things have changed. Kate brought you into this mess and now she feels responsible for seeing you out of it. There's a lot to unpack that unfolded over the past week among Alex's Youtube video, Dave's barstool update, Alex's first episode solo, her final offer, and the Scooter Braun of it all. Beyond that, Kate spends the latter portion of the episode talking about why all of this matters, specifically why what Alex told us about Sofia's relationship matters, and talks through more lessons learned as she's dissected this complicated situation. It’s never a waste of time to deep dive if we can learn something from it, and this is a case study that represents relevant business, friendship, and relationship scenarios we all find ourselves in all the time that are worth diving into. Enjoy!

Call Her Daddy Issues
02:15:00

This week, Kate discusses the layers of a major story involving a wildly popular podcast, Call Her Daddy. In this episode, she first discusses the show's unprecedented success, theories on why the show is popular, and her perspective on when sexual rhetoric objectifies vs. empowers women. But, the discussion of their show's content is simply for musing's sake; more importantly, she wants to highlight that one of the issues with this story's coverage is that their show's subject matter is unfairly being used to devalue or invalidate their success. Throughout the podcast, she talks through different aspects of the story's progression, starting with explaining the existing business deal with Barstool, why their compensation is normal for the entertainment industry (but abnormal for the podcast world), and walks through how podcast networks operate by giving examples of the other financial scenarios that could have generated them a higher percentage of revenue, but not necessarily a comparable volume of audience. Kate also explores the importance of prioritizing your intellectual property, why that could've ultimately generated the bulk of their income, and also explores the confusing nature of media contracts that reward companies who give people their big break, despite living in a world where people can now give themselves their big break. But it begs the question, to what scale? To what level? How can you know when investing in talent what the future holds? Where does the value of the runway you were given end and where does the value of your merit begin? Beyond that, Kate talks about her experience staying private, owning IP, and basically doing the opposite of what they did, and why it's an example of what company resources can do for size and scale, and depends on what you want from something you create. Above all else, she talks through one of the lessons she's learned: money's important, but so are people, and how a respectful, realistic negotiation could've prevented the collapse of one of the wildest success stories that the podcast industry has ever witnessed.

In the finale of this influencer-centric trilogy, Kate tells all.

Based on listener questions, she reviews her thoughts on the influencer business model as a whole, breaks down the heyday of Pinterest and OG blogging, expresses concern for how the industry is talked about, the lack of credit given to women for what is essentially category creation, reviews theories on rules of thumb for Instagram pricing, discusses the podcasting business model, her own intentions in the realm of influence, experience with affiliate links, how influencers make money, and so much more!

Beyond that, they discuss influencers at the center of current or previous controversies like Arielle Charnas, Caroline Calloway, and Rachel Hollis, to name a few. Come back for part 2 when Kate reviews the results of a survey she did where over a thousand of you shared your perspective, expectations, and recommendations for influencers during a time when their voice (or lack thereof) has the ability to stand out more than ever.

I Saw The Signs (Part II)
01:59:00

If you're in the mood for a deep talk about the inexplicable things that happen to us, this is the episode for you. Kate crowdsources and reads aloud listener stories of signs, spooky occurrences, coincidences, synchronicities, and examples of passed loved ones possibly communicating. With lots of philosophical discussions in between about life, death, religion, and spirituality, this is perhaps the deepest of dives yet. Sounds like a downer, but it's ultimately an uplifting reminder of how we never really part from what matters most and to always pay close attention. You never know who's reaching out :)

A classic BTI5 monologue episode packed with highly specific analyses of modern topics paired with an assortment of nostalgic pop culture thoughts that are sure to brighten your spirits. First, Kate talks about how badly she wants to be in a physical store and dreams of walking the aisles of a Marshall’s in all their sticky, cluttered, Eileen Fischer-esque glory. Then, she meanders through various events from 2000-2005, including her most embrassing moment, denim back pockets as a status symbol, Todd Oldham for Target, scrunching your hair, weight fluctuation, Y2K, anatomy of a popular girl, among a ton of other topics that fall within this glorious half decade. Kate had a great time recording this super shallow episode and hopes you’ll be able to escape for a moment listening to it. Enjoy & stay safe!

They talk about a variety of things related to the show; from the more minor details that Kate harps on, i.e. stainless steel glasses, brown bed sheets, the lacking Lacheys, etc. to the deeper lessons in life and love that Mark ultimately extracted from the show. They discuss the ins and outs of the audition process, logistics, and pod dates, then dive into how Mark really feels about his experience being engaged to Jessica. Does he think she got a fair edit? Was he really in love? Was he surprised at the altar? Was he aware of her feelings toward Barnett? Is it true he had a girlfriend this whole time? Find out all this and more on this week's episode.

95: The 2020 Experience
01:52:00

This week, Kate recaps the first two weeks of 2020 day by day, but not before a necessary discussion about Coach Monica and the amazingness of Netflix's new show "Cheer." After that, starting with Jan 1, Kate looks at the Google search trends of each day of the year so far and goes over pop culture's biggest events in 2020. Including (but not limited to) the Pope's slap, Raddix Madden, Jillian Michaels vs. Lizzo, Karlie Kloss on Project Runway, to TikTok's interpretation of WWIII, the Coachella lineup, Pilot Pete's season of The Bachelor, the out of touch Golden Globes, Adele & co in Anguilla, an orphan Annie tangent, bad red carpet coverage, her frustrations with MLMs, and thoughts on the tweet about "letting people live in 2020." Last but not least, she reviews Harry & Meghan's announcement to step down as senior members of the royal family and goes over their statements on financials, media coverage, and the Queen's response. Enjoy!

72: Lover at First Sight (Taylor Swift Album First Impressions)
01:20:00
A sleepy but necessary run-through of my first impressions of the 14 songs we had not yet heard on Lover. I love logging these thoughts because they tend to change so drastically as I listen more and more. Please consider this a bonus episode as opposed to a well-thought-out deep dive, as this was a last-minute decision but one I could not ignore, given I'm so thrilled with the outcome of this album. It was Lover at first sight!

As a person that often texts their friends "Be There in Five" when she just got out of the shower, Kate Kennedy (entrepreneur, self-proclaimed millenni-old, and unofficial pop culture reporter) started a company that aimed to solve a major problem of likeminded people running out the door; wondering if they left their curling iron or straightener on. Concerned for the fire safety of her unpunctual peers, Kate founded her company Be There in Five, whose claim to fame is their proprietary 'remindoormats.' Now, 4 years and thousands of doormats later, the only thing left burning is Kate's desire to share her thoughts on pop culture, TV, celeb gossip, and the '90s zeitgeist, topics which she has become well-known for ranting about on Instagram. Join her while she podcasts her way through the lonely days of self-employment, chatting about things that she says, quote "are delightfully unimportant."
