    A lot has happened since we started making this podcast nearly a year ago. So we’re asking: what have we learned? And what advice can we give to ourselves..and each other...as we navigate all of it.

    We use our phones all the time, but we never talk about how we use them. This episode, we look at the unspoken rules and expectations of social media, and how they can impact our relationships. Plus how tracking and other types of surveillance affect our behavior.

    Teen Life

    Part of being a teen is realizing that things are not as simple as they seem. That there’s a darker side to the world that maybe we’re just seeing for the first time. It’s also a time when -- some of us, hopefully -- figure out ways to navigate that.

    Identity + Sex

    So many teens stress about coming out - when to do it, how to do it, who to tell, who not to tell. In this episode, we ask: Why is coming out still a thing? Plus questions about the word 'virginity' and how queer teens fit in.
