My name's Kate and I'm happy to be here. I'm in my early 20s, mentally ill, alt and gay. So, I'm just like your average "young adult." I'm still trying to figure life out and have a good time in the process. Tune in every Thursday to listen to my guests and I discuss topics on every 20-something's mind like dating apps, mental illness, astrology, social justice issues, and of course squishmallows.

This week, your favorite Gemini, bassist is back: Austin! We share how our summer is going so far and all the passion projects we've been working on.

Additionally, we talk about how sexism can play a role during a doctor's visit.

In addition, I talk about the struggles of being perceived as a lesbian in the public sphere (going on dates with women, etc.).

I love this podcast so much!
I just started it but I am really in love with the fact that you are so productive in loving yourself for who you are and it is helping me feel better about myself and my sexuality and everything else I have been insecure about. Thank You!!!
