Join Andrew, Chloe, Pooja and Sophie every other week to listen in on their conversations about culture, travel, relationships, and world-issues in relation to humanitarian causes and human rights. They also bring invited guests from various communities (such as the Stanford Online High School community), friends, and other instructors to have them share their unique views and perspectives.
Season 2 Episode 5: A Personal Talk on Toxic Masculinity (ft. Sam Chachkes)
This week we dive into a deep and personal conversation on toxic masculinity. Sam Chachkes, a brick and mortar student from Trinity School in NYC, joins us as he and Andrew share their personal experiences dealing with toxic masculinity and how they cope with it. The group tosses out their thoughts on where toxic masculinity stems from, how it assimilates into daily life. This issue is often talked about, but the severity of how it affects people isn’t. Please do listen in as Sam as Andrew speak out on the severity of it, reminding us that we need more people like them who are brave enough to speak out on such issues.
Season 2 Episode 4: Catching Up with Riddhi Singh on Stanford, Rowing Recruiting, and Non-Profit 'Chip-In-Change'
The girls and Andrew catch up on the recent world events and ongoings in the White House before welcoming another special guest, Riddhi Singh! A Stanford OHS Alum joins us to talk about her current transition to Stanford University remotely, being recruited to the women’s rowing team before the sport got pulled, and tells us all about her non-profit organization ‘Chip-in-Change’.

Season 2 Episode 2: Teen Brains, Mental Health, and Black Lives Matter (ft. Shivek Narang)

His organization aims to teach teens and parents how to better approach and care for their mental health during their adolescence.

For our Season 1 Finale episode, we say farewell to our beloved co-host, Haven Hunt, as she departs high school and embarks on a new journey at UCLA! We reflect on our year, reminisce on the season, and Haven tells us about her experience coming into a new school in senior year, the lessons she's learned at OHS, and what she's excited/scared of about going to college.
