On the Rookie Podcast, hosted by Tavi Gevinson, we'll interview people we admire: artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, activists. We'll also have teenagers ask semi-qualified grownups for advice, feature work by our readers and listeners, share some life skills and pop culture recommendations, and discuss the human experience through the teenage lens. Then, we'll all know how to be people! Or at least not know, together.

I've only listened to two episodes so far and I'm mesmerized. The content is so inspiring and I love the way the show is produced. Would love to see more! Keep it up!
I like the "ask a grown" column but I think the interviews are a little too specific. Most of the stuff that's talked about I've never heard before. I think it would be more useful to talk about more general topics and asking about specific books or movies.
Inspiring and Uplifting
Listening to the Rookie podcast always leaves me feeling inspired and like I can take on the world.
