96 episodi

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.

    Stuck in a Kayak with Hannah Berner (from Bravo's Summer House)

    This week, Kate starts by stating her peace about Jen & Brad (Jad? Bren? Did we not brand them as a couple?) and a few other current events. Then, she had the joy of being joined by Hannah Berner, a hilarious podcaster, comedian, and cast member of Bravo's hit show Summer House. They discuss a variety of topics, i.e. if money buys happiness, changing careers, the pressure to change your face once you're on TV, what it's like venturing into comedy, her impressive tennis career that Bravo low key did a docuseries about every episode, dating app pet peeves, the list goes on. Kate also grills Hannah about the behind the scenes of being on a reality show and gets the scoop on her relationship with her castmates, what it's like being filmed 24/7 (see also: hooking up on camera), cleaning the house and Sunday Scaries, how she handles conflict on camera, details on some of this season's drama from the trailer, and discusses how her life has changed since being on TV. Overall, such a fun conversation and to hear more, head to Hannah's podcast Berning in Hell where she interviews Kate this week as well.

    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.

    94: Under the Influencer (with Jenn Lake)

    94: Under the Influencer (with Jenn Lake)

    This week, Kate had the pleasure of sitting down with Jennifer Lake as part of the podcast’s Under the Influencer series. A successful blogger and influencer in her own right, Jenn has paved a unique career being both inside the industry and working alongside it. As a full-time SVP at a PR agency (that often works with bloggers) and a blogger herself (The Style Charade), she has a unique perspective on all things influencer marketing. They discuss personality tests' relevance to your career, the lady that would weirdly bring color swatches to your house in the 90s, the ins and outs of having a full-time job (with no intention of leaving) and a time-consuming side hustle, the importance of recognizing when something isn’t working for you and how to pivot, where the influencer world is headed, followed by Kate’s favorite topic: influencer PR trips. How do you vet and select people for trips? Are they always paid? How is it different when you’re invited on one versus coordinating one for your job? How do you track effectiveness and performance? Do you professionally lurk to find the right people and what if they don’t do a good job? Do you put people in middle seats on international flights? How does Kate get Arby’s to notice her? Kate has all the questions and Jenn graciously answers with incredible insight into the biz from a multitude of professional and personal angles. Also, she may have changed Kate’s mind about the Nsale, not an easy feat. Hope you enjoy!

    93: Bumble All The Way

    Inspired by a family swipe-a-thon through my sister's Bumble account over Christmas break, this week we are talking all things online dating with a very special guest, my sister Kelly. We review a bit about Christmas and Hallmark movies but then dive into a live swiping of the Bumble talent near my parents' house, followed by a lengthy discussion about do's and don'ts of dating profiles while going through hundreds of BTI5 listeners' pet peeves about photos, bios, messages, and more. Enjoy and Happy New Year!

    92: Personal Rebranding (with Ashley Hesseltine from Girls Gotta Eat)

    This week, Kate is joined by the hilarious Ashley Hesseltine (comedian, founder of @brosbeingbasic, co-host of Girls Gotta Eat podcast) to talk about many things, but mostly, they keep going back to the same pressing topic: the art of trying to be a hot girl who gets attention from boys at a suburban high school. Ira Glass could never. We cover a lot of ground, from the expectations bestowed upon tall people that result in being a JV Junior, to cheerleading, to prom dates and late blooming, to a short-lived stint in a sorority as a result of a highly successful personal rebrand. We also discuss Ashley's incredible career trajectory, GGE's successful tour, her experience speaking openly about sex & dating, magical spring break trips, Instagram likes, and a myriad of other entertaining topics. Follow Ashley @ashhess and @girlsgotteatpodcast. Enjoy!

Kate starts by talking a bit about the live show, the decades podcast she's working on, and then reviews some brief observations from her days browsing the Scholastic book order form.

Becca and Grace discuss their love for reading, their top books (high & low brow), their favorites from childhood, and what book/magazine related pop culture they're most fond of from the 90s. They also answer listener questions, like what their deep dive episodes would be about, which tropes/plotlines they love to hate when reading, their favorite podcast episodes, holy grail beauty products, etc. Be sure to check out Bad On Paper and Bad On Politics, and follow @graceatwood and @beccamfreeman!
