A must listen for everyone

This podcast is amazing, not only is it hosted by young people, but they also all show with their diverse voices and thoughts. Andrea as their mentor does a great job walking them through the process and production of the show and it’s fantastic for the After School Matters in Chicago program exists to give students this opportunity to showcase their voice. Listen to it, support it, and get inspired by the stories shared 🫶🏽 ✨

I listened to the "Bullying" episode. This podcast is very well produced and the young people contributing their stories do an amazing job talking about a tough subject. Good job all around!
