Neither young nor a rocker, but
I love this podcast. Chelsea's storytelling is entertaining and her advice for her younger self (and us listeners) is insightful. I'm a sucker for a coming-of-age story, and this one is very well told! The later episodes from other rockers have been fun to hear, too. Check out Mia Berrin's and LG's if you want a place to start. But really, go back to the beginning of Chelsea's story even though it's been out for a while now - it's timeless and really enjoyable.
i LOVE this podcast
This is so relatable. Helped me get through a lot of Middle School issues! Chelsea please make more podcasts!!❤️❤️❤️❤️👌🙏❤️
Definitely one of my favorite podcasts
Its strange how you can feel a connection to someone so different from you but in some ways the same. I am a 47 year old Harley riding guy who marred early, joined the Army, had kids and grand kids but still felt a kinship and connection to the girl the first seasons. I did dabble in garage bands as a teen and can relate to being shy but when I recommend this podcast I get strange looks. But i think anyone who experienced the awkwardness of growing up should be able to relate to this podcast the way I did. Mayne I can see my daughters and grand daughter's in this. Thank you, you made lots of long miles working fly by
