Feeling Some Type of Way is the only podcast hosted by teenagers, for teenagers. 16-year-old Adriana and 17-year-old Kyle are tired of adults representing who teenagers are. Every other week, hear about their friendships, corny jokes, and social media habits as well as the pressure they feel to get into college and learning to feel comfortable in their own bodies.
Kyle and Adriana are in the first semester of their senior year of high school, and they are stressed. In this episode, they interview their college counselor about his college experience and his advice to them when applying and choosing a school.
We also are announcing the end of the first season of FSTW. We are taking a break to work on our next season. If you have ideas for episodes, please email us at FSTWpodcast@gmail.com or Tweet or Snapchat us at FSTWpodcast. You can also leave an idea in an iTunes review. Thank you for your support!
When Kyle was less than a year old, his mom made a really hard decision-- to send him to live with his grandma in Jamaica. For the first time, Kyle asks his mom about why she made that choice and talks to her about how both their lives have changed since he moved back to New York City to live with her.
In this episode, the Doctor of LOL will tell you why using emojis and text abbreviations is actually a good thing. Kyle and Adriana talk to linguist Michelle McSweeney about her research.
When Adriana was in middle school, she was bullied about her weight. As she got older, she struggled to explain to her mom about what she saw and felt when she looked in the mirror. Now, she talks to Cuban American journalist Carmen Cusido about her recovery from anorexia and the unique challenges they face as Hispanic Americans trying to translate eating disorders to their immigrant parents.
Adriana and Kyle investigate the conspiracy theory that Canadian singer/rapper Drake is actually Dominican.
Social Media Madness
Kyle deletes his social media accounts for one month. Adriana tries to join him for the last week-- but neither of them quite make it.
After listening to a segment of FSTW on Borders, I'm SO excited for this next podcast. I love Adriana and Kyle's bold reporting style and their conversational and insightful analyisis of the world. No doubt this will inspire a whole new generation of teenage podcasters!
Love this podcast!
So rare to hear such a raw and wonderful podcasts about human emotions in such an important time in our lives. We all remember being a teenager, but this really makes it real again in all the best ways!
