    3 Years of The Socially Awkward Podcast

    3 Years of The Socially Awkward Podcast

    For the last time, "thank you for listening to The Socially Awkward Podcast."

    The Socially Awkward Podcast turns 3, and we are taking a break. The podcast has seen John, Rebecca, and Emma through various life events, a huge collective one being the pandemic. Producing 1 episode per month during periods of Covid restrictions while juggling studies and personal life was never easy. However, the skills and memories that producing the podcast has brought are invaluable and will be forever treasured by everyone on the team.

    We want to express our gratitude to everyone who helped make this podcast possible, including our families, team members, mentors, and guests!

Having lived in both Singapore, and now the UK, Ethan describes the different experiences he's had in these different multicultural societies.

    Do You Still Like "Playing" Dress Up?

    When we were kids, there was probably a time in our lives when we dressed up as fictional characters. Whether it was putting on a random white coat and pretending to be a doctor, or dressing up as Superman for Halloween. Well, is cosplay any different? Claire talks about how she got into cosplaying, why she cosplays, what to be aware of when joining the cosplay community, and how to start cosplaying yourself!

    Whether you share Cayley and Claire's hobby of cosplaying or are just curious as to why some people do it, have a listen to this episode! There may have been some inaccurate preconceived notions that you have as it isn't something that people come in contact with often, but the best is to listen to what someone who cosplays has to say about it.
