He also hosted the podcast SleepyCabin with his content-creator friends. Hadel has appeared on other podcasts to discuss his career and his work as PsychicPebbles including his interview with Vsauce2 on The Create Unknown and a guest episode of The Official Podcast.

In 2020, Zach Hadel created a cartoon for Adult Swim called Smiling Friends. Zach Hadel's experience as a voice actor and podcaster has showcased his characteristic "congested" voice.
