What is the easiest way to achieve the effect in this video around 42 sec. in? I am referring to the flashes of color. I see this a lot.

It is a "16mm" end of film look, or something like that.
It's a combination of flashes of light (use levels) and color correction of the image to bring that to orange tones (use a Photo filter or Colorista to do that). Of course it involves animating the above to "flash" a few times before a transition/cut.
Sometimes you can ad a 50-30% orange layer on top and animate some feathered masks to create some "blobs" of color that grow over the image.
I'm sure you can find some good tutorials if you google it, but that's my way of doing it.

You could also buy some "film flash" or "light leak" stock footage and experiment with different transfer modes and opacities.

Just been looking for a solution to this effect myself, 16mm stock footage from Artbeats is good but expensive.

However I found these guys...

Their film FX Transitions are dirt cheap in comparison and work just as well as (if not better) than stock footage.

Just covered my pre-title in them today and it looks magic.
