Celebrity Re-Watch Podcasts: A Cumulative List

Are there any comfort shows you WISH would create a rewatch pod?

June 5, 2022 11:07am

Nostalgia lovers, this one’s for you…

If you are anything like me -built of equal parts water, junk food, and anxiety- you may have the superhuman ability to re-watch Schitt’s Creek, Friends, or Golden Girls reruns incessantly without ever tiring of the cast or plot.

According to science, WE ARE NOT ALONE!

Psychologists concluded that “repetition breeds affection.”
“Familiar fare requires less mental energy to process, and when something is easy to think about, we tend to consider it good. A movie we’ve seen seven times before is blissfully easy to process,” as per The Atlantic.
The scientific term for this is “mere exposure effect.” Essentially, audiences will tend to like something more merely because of previous exposure.
Lucky for us, many of our fav celebs have also embraced society’s need for “comfort” during these trying times and have launched (or are about to launch) podcasts breaking down their popular shows and sharing behind-the-scenes anecdotes with their loyal fans.
What a time to be alive!

Here is a growing list of all the ‘celebrity re-watch podcasts’ hosted by the show’s cast and crew, for your entertainment – and, of course, to satisfy your insatiable need for nostalgia.

Beverly Hills 90210

 

9021OMG’s Apple Podcast description teases, “It’s been THIRTY years since we walked the halls of West Beverly High, since we all hung out at the Peach Pit, since Brandon and Kelly had their first kiss, since we shouted Donna Martin Graduates!”

Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are here for it all! Join them as they rewatch every episode from the very very beginning. Discover all the behind-the-scenes juicy details you’ve dreamed about for thirty years. Superfan and radio host, Sisanie, sits in to guide them through it all.

Back to the Beach With Kristin and Stephen

Laguna Beach

 

Variety.com announced “Laguna Beach” stans will get a dose of tea from stars Kristin Cavallari and Stephen Colletti in the first rewatch podcast hosted by former cast members of the fan-favorite reality TV show from the 2000s.

“Back to the Beach With Kristin and Stephen,” to premiere this summer [2022], comes from podcast production company Dear Media, which has ordered 40 episodes across two seasons.
