The Best YouTube Cooking Channels to Record Today

YT-cooking-BLOG

People have been eating food for literally ever. But with the rise of cooking shows, celebrity chefs, food truck entrepreneurship, dinner delivery services, lifestyle glamorization via social media and the DIY movement, one has to face facts: now more than ever, foodies rule the world.

That’s why we asked some of the best home cooks on the Applian team about their favorite YouTube food channels (and boy, are we glad we did!). Use Replay Media Catcher to record each and every episode from these outstanding culinary works.

Happy cooking!

America’s Test Kitchen

Food is popular. Data is popular. America’s Test Kitchen doesn’t quite carry the torch for the overlap of these, but it’s close. From its kitchen/lab near Boston, America’s Test Kitchen will test each considered recipe up to 70 times, “until we arrive at the combination of ingredients, technique, temperature, cooking time, and equipment that yields the best, most-foolproof recipe.”

PBS Food 

If you’re looking for a terrific mix of traditional television cooking shows right alongside shorter-form digital-only food-centric web series, PBS Food is right for you. From gastro tourism advice to come cooking tricks for tastiness, this old broadcaster’s online video presence feels just as fresh as the produce they’re cooking up.

The Katering Show

“Crack open the cooking sherry and pour it down your gullet,” say Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney in an intro to their hysterical cooking series, The Katering Show. The show is dry, hilarious and whip-smart: “a proud (food) baby borne from the brains of two of Australia’s fast-rising stars of the comedy world.”

RSRV

Reserve Channel’s video offering has more of a full fledged lifestyle approach, but centered around food and fine eating. From exotic trips, to famous folks both within the culinary world and without, RSRV’s video library is perfect for browsing and quickly recording the meals you want to make.

FudeHouse

Among the most distinctive and stylish culinary web series, Fude House is less interested in providing full recipes to make tonight than it is in teaching specific tips, tricks, ideas and techniques to inspire a lifetime of preparing great food. From videos on butchering a full chicken, advice on lighting charcoal for the grill, to all the best ways to use vodka in the kitchen, Fude House can quickly become addictive to the point of dependency. Beware.

FoodWishes wStars

Food Wishes

Perhaps the most traditional recipe video channel of the bunch, Food Wishes produces a steady stream of useful and delightful content for foodies and home cooks. The entire undertaking is crafted around creat kitchen ideas that build your skills as a home cook up bit by bit. Make a food wish!

The Best Humor(ous) Podcasts to Record Today

1416007138_thumb.png

One of the youngest members of the Applian family is Replay Radio: a tool that lets you record and keep audio content from just about anywhere. But this is the internet we’re talking about, and with Applian, the problem is never ‘how can I record this media?’ it’s ‘how do I choose what media to record?’

Here’s a selection of our favorite, funny podcasts. Capture them all with Replay Radio and finish this summer with a laugh. Listen on!

WTF with Marc Maron

“To me being a comic meant to be autonomous, angry, truthful, and funny,” says Mark Maron, whose WTF podcast isn’t always as laugh out loud funny as it is self-reflective, truthful and angry. Last month, President Obama joined the podcast but Maron’s usual guests are comics. Funniness, a healthy dose of coming of age tales and inside comedy showbiz stories ensue.
Use Replay Radio to capture WTF from its website or iTunes.

How Did This Get Made?

Have you ever seen a movie so bad that it’s amazing? So begins the official show description and premise of the wonderful How Did This Get Made? podcast, which features funny people, making fun of terrible movies. Hosts Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas and June Diane Raphael dive deep on the movies and TV shows we all love to hate.

Use Replay Radio to capture How Did This Get Made from its website, iTunes, Stitcher or Soundcloud.

Judge John Hodgman

Self-declared “famous minor television personality” John Hodgman has been a master of wry, sarcastic criticism for some time. You might remember him from the I’m a Mac ads with Justin Long, or from his contributing role on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show as Resident Deranged Millionaire. In his podcast, Hodgeman asks his audience (or anyone else) to bring him issues that need resolving and then brings his bludgeoning, literalist wit to bear on debates and, ultimately, rulings.  You won’t find a more fiercely comedic judge, more tyrannical jury or more hilarious executioner anywhere.
Use Replay Radio to capture Judge John Hodgman from its website or iTunes.

The Bugle

Perhaps America’s favorite contemporary British comic, John Oliver’s bread and butter are pointing out the absurdities of modern American (and other) politics and animal puns. So it’s no surprise his podcast The Bugle with Andy Zaltman calls itself an ‘audio newspaper for a visual world’ and leaves ‘no political hot potato unbuttered.’

If you enjoyed John Oliver’s contributing or hosting work on The Daily Show, or if you’re a fan of his new, more provocative show on HBO, check out The Bugle and make reading tomorrow’s paper just a little less painful.
Use Replay Radio to capture The Bugle from its website or iTunes.


 

app-podcast1

Star Talk Radio

And now for show that’s not so much a humor podcast as a humorous podcast, starring perhaps America’s most unlikely folk comedic celebrity, the oft-cited and well-known Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Tyson is an expert at making big, scientific notions and questions accessible, with smart, healthy doses of pop culture references and humor.

Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol 13

humorous disctractions

It’s been a trying year so far for our favorite in-house doctor – Dr. Jeff Wilson, PhD, of course. Besides his UX work for the team here at Applian, and the thousands upon thousands of videos and web clips he’s been through, Dr. Jeff has also been spending more time at home with his parents. Not really, but here, in preparation for some 4th of July family time, are a few things he’s learned about surviving a move back in with the parental units. Have some more salad.

Using Applian for Archiving Podcasts

podcasts

As a format, podcasts are the black sheep, dark horse, red-headed-stepchild of the digital media space – praised, dismissed, then praised again, only to be re-dismissed as an antiquated, skeuomorphic form later on. But so long as Google Glass, Oculus and digital contact lenses remain far from mainstream useful, podcasts will continue to be produced and consumed at a rapid clip.

Here at Applian, we help you capture a lot of video-based content and do our best to tell you about the optimal product for recording media from any platform. So, without further ado, here is our essential guide to downloading podcasts with Applian products.

Capture the 2015 French Open Live Stream With Replay Media Catcher


The French Open Tennis tournament at Paris’ Roland Garros is known for the drama that unfolds on its storied clay courts. The French Open is the second annual Grand Slam event on the pro tennis calendar, nearly single handedly responsible for modern players’ continued focus on clay court tennis play.

Defending champion and nine time French Open winner, Rafael Nadal will look to upset world number one Novak Djokovic but the fans will be cheering for yet another Nadal vs Roger Federer final. World number three Andy Murray will look to bolster his own Major Championship resume with a visit from the UK while the young Montenegran up and comer Milos Raonic has tennis savants on upset alert.


NBC Sports will provide coverage of The French Open 2015 at Roland Garros on its Live Extra platform, which you can record and keep with Replay Media Catcher. More coverage of Tennis’ most exotic Major can be found on the Roland Garros website.
