Travel back in time to remember the good, bad, and awkward parts of growing up. Recorded live on stage, adults share the weird and wonderful things they wrote as children and teens. Embarrassing, moving, and hilarious, these readings are powerful reminders of who we used to be. The Guardian says "it has much charm," while Splitsider describes GRTTWaK as "equal parts cringe-worthy and cathartic."

NOT APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS

I am 9 years old and I was looking for a podcast to watch so I come across Adults read things they wrote as kids and of course you look at the ratings before listening so I looked and they all gave 5 stars so I listen to the podcast so 20 minutes later my dad comes in and says”this is not appropriate for kids”
So my message is DO NOT LISTEN IF YOU ARE UNDER 13!!!!!!!!
P.s. “i”

i was looking for non-political humour and this cured me

people whose kid selves picked the literary nugget of a situation. i love this
