Hi, I'm Jared Weseman
Hey there, welcome to my online home. I'm Jared Weseman, a 23 year old online creator. I like to make things. I have been producing content of various types on the internet since my first podcast launched in May of 2009. I have passions in technology, politics, music, culture, fashion, and travel. I will be writing about all of those things and more on the Blog. I graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelors in Finance in December 2014. Currently, I work in Information Technology and reside in East Lansing, Michigan, USA.

The Long-Winded Version
I grew up in a small town in Michigan. As the son of two business owners, I have always had a passion for building businesses. I've been a huge geek since I begged my mom for my first computer in elementary school. I keep up on the current goings on of the tech industry religiously. I began to get very interested in politics around the time of the 2008 US presidential election. I can't wait to travel the world and am a bit of an anglophile, obsessed with everything British. I enjoy music, coffee, and a good conversation.
Podcasting was my first online passion. After listening to the likes of Adam Curry and Leo Laporte, I was determined to get into it myself. I bought a basic podcasting setup and launched Jared Weseman: Unfiltered. A show that ranged from 1-2 hours where I played PodSafe music, and talked about politics and technology. After a little more than a year and a couple month hiatus, the show relaunched as a political-only 'Politics: Unfiltered'. In February 2010 the show went daily. My interest began to rub-off on my friends and in August 2010 Unsolicited Advice launched alongside Unfiltered Media, a company to produce my shows. I also began hosting a weekly current events and politics show called The Current with Jacob Bodnar in the fall of 2010. I have aspirations to return to the podcasting scene in the future.
Online video has always been exciting to me, but I only got really engrossed in the vlogging culture of YouTube in the fall of 2012. Just recently I have launched my personal YouTube channel that features vlog style videos about my life and anything on my mind.
My new blog is my outlet to explore all of my passions and thoughts in greater detail. I hope you join in the conversation in comments, and feel free to suggest ideas for me to write about.
