As seen in the events of the very first episode of the Baet Experience podcast, it is the open-mindedness, interest, and attentiveness of the hosts that make this podcast such a great one. The hosts of the Baet Experience podcast use their platform to tell the stories of different individuals. While they provide thought-provoking ideas and points here and there, they do not take the spotlight away from their guests and their experiences. Open minds and open ears, this is what Baet Experience promotes to its listeners. With that being said, here are more instances where the Baet Boys showcased this.
Episode 10 of Baet Experience talks about a day in the life of a lifestyle vlogger, model, and actress with the special guest being Ms. Allora Alacantara. The Baet Boys learn about this fun and interesting hobby whilst Allora shares her experiences, inspirations, thinking process, and many more that shaped her journey as a vlogger. It all started with watching YouTube videos. Alacantara mentioned how much she enjoys watching videos to pass time, then one night she suddenly thought to herself, “Why not start making videos again and continue where I left off 2 years ago?” And so she did. Having more free time during the lockdown, as well as lesser commitments in college and work, pushed her to return to this passion of hers. Alora added how being a vlogger requires numerous tools to produce the best content possible, such as a high-quality camera, a trusty camera stand, and a good ring light. In addition to this, to brainstorm ideas for her own content, she usually makes a list of borrowed concepts from other content creators on YouTube, picks the ideas that she clicks with, then reinvents them in a way that makes them original and unique to her style. Allora also stressed how taxing the filming and editing process of her videos are. Filming usually takes an entire weekend, while she is glued to her devices for an entire day just to perfectly edit her content. Throughout the podcast, the Baet Boys develop huge respect for their guest’s hobby and the work she puts into it for vlogging is not an easy task at all.
Another instance where the story of the guest was greatly highlighted in Baet Experience was during Episode 18 where the Baet Boys learned about the story of Rafael Renzo “RR” Cahilig otherwise known as the “Strongest powerlifter in the Philippines.’’ Cahilig, 3-time champion of the powerlifting meet 105-kilo open and junior division, shares how he started his powerlifting journey and how it is going so far. Before powerlifting, Cahilig started occasionally lifting when he was around 12-13 years old. This is why we start them young. Following this, the hobby became more consistent as he entered college. It was when Cahilig joined an internship in the States that he met people that pursued powerlifting as a sport, and realized that it was his calling. He officially started his professional powerlifting career when he was 20 years old in the States. He has always been a sporty guy, Cahilig tried out basketball and American football during his high school days and kept exploring from there. What made him choose to pursue powerlifting professionally? Cahilig admits to how powerlifting has become an outlet for him to release stress, also the continuous progress and seeing his body get stronger gave him a lot of satisfaction. Throughout the podcast, the Baet Boys delve deeper into his journey as a powerlifter and begin to recognize the immense commitment and discipline that comes with the sport. Much respect indeed.
