Healthy Relationships, Snapchat and being left on read
What do youth think a healthy relationship looks like? In this episode, we dive deep into a conversation on the importance of communication in relationships, and the sometimes-negative impact of social media. We discuss how emotional abuse plays out in relationships, and the phenomenon of getting "left on read."
I'm Here For You and I Love You

These are the kind of discussions we should be having with friends and family all the time! I’m so glad there is a podcast like this that uplifts youth voice while talking about such pervasive issues.
As a youth voice, I appreciate hearing other young speaking of change and social constructs in society that need to be broken down. It all starts with one conversation and these young voices are doing it. BEST PODCAST EVER!!
