    Episode 18: Moving Back Home, in with a Partner, and to a New State

    Welcome to another season of Adulthood Pending! A lot has happened during our four month break and we’re excited to be back and to continue to share our experiences–starting with moving! This summer, all three of us moved somewhere: Annalise moved back to Boston, Kimi moved to San Diego with her partner, and Brittanee moved to Chicago for med school. In this episode, we share our experiences of making new friends, navigating a new city with a significant other, and tips and tricks we’ve learned through moving.
    Tune in to our first episode of season 3 and find out who’s a minimalist or maximalist!

    Episode 16: Our Relationship with Personal Finances, Budgeting, and Retirement in our 20s

    Episode 16: Our Relationship with Personal Finances, Budgeting, and Retirement in our 20s

    One of the most unavoidable challenges that come with adulthood is learning how to manage your own finances. We touched on one aspect of finances, credit, in Episode 12 with Vrinda Gupta, CEO and founder of Sequin. But we wanted to go more in-depth on our relationship with money as young adults in our 20s. In this episode, we discuss how our perception of money has changed over time, how our families have influenced our ideas of money, and what we’ve learned about budgeting, investing, and retirement these past few years!

    Episode 15: Comparing Two Sisters’ Paths to Adulthood with Dr. Julianna Ko, D.D.S

    We welcome Julianna Ko, Annalise’s older sister, onto this week’s episode to talk about dental school! Julianna is currently completing her periodontics residency at Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC. She graduated from Tufts in 2015 with a double major in English and Biology and then went immediately to dental school at University of California San Francisco. Join us as we talk about Julianna’s path to adulthood as a dental student and how it differs from her full-time employed younger sister, Annalise. 

    At the end of the episode, hear Julianna answer some of our burning dental questions! Spoiler alert, your mouth is dirtier than you think. Turns out there’s more to oral hygiene than just brushing your teeth twice a day!

    Episode 14: Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine and Medical Racism with We Got Us

    Episode 14: Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine and Medical Racism with We Got Us

    As more adults become eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, we wanted to have a conversation about the COVID-19 vaccine. In this episode, we bring on the We Got Us Empowerment Project, a grassroots organization founded by Harvard Medical School student LaShyra “Lash” Nolen. They are a collective of Black community members, healthcare professionals, students, and allies dedicated to educating their communities about COVID-19 and ensuring their access to the vaccine.

    Join us as we discuss with Community Engagement Director, Kareem King, and Co-Project Director, Caleb Gordon, of the We Got Us Empowerment Project and how they are providing members of their community with resources and information to make their own well-informed decisions about the vaccine, breaking down and dismantling myths about the vaccines, and combating systems of oppression in our healthcare system and unjust medical treatment in the Black community.

Fun, lighthearted and insightful

This podcast is fun and very relevant to lots of people, not just post graduate students. It’s insightful getting to hear the perspectives of these 3 recent grads and how life is going. They are honest, forward thinking and thoughtful. A great listen!

Heartful podcast alert

I’m so excited for the future episodes... I loved how deep the conversations were among the three recent graduates. They all share insights from their own personal lives (ex: one is job hunting, one has a job, one is applying to grad school), and as a recent grad, I gravitated to each of their stories. I can’t recommend this enough if you’re looking for a down to earth conversation with people who are navigating life after college.

Constantly Insightful

Brittanee, Annalise, and Kimi are very self-aware and socially conscious individuals— we all have a lot to learn from them! Love how they give such honest insights into their thoughts/challenges as new adults
