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.

All The Late Feminist Icons Would Be So Proud
I have been a Rookie reader from the start (when I was 13-14) and a podcast fan for a long time. Two have these two combined is a dream come true. I am currently 19 years-old and I keep up with Rookie every week and I cannot believe the podcast is happening. I feel like a proud child and so excited for what's next. I think I'm in the right track for life but at the same time I am confused with what I'm doing and who I am. It's like I'm watching an experimental film that makes me feel dumb because I don't understand it right away. I'm excited to see where the Rookie podcast goes and I'm happy i'll be able to hear from such amazing people on life and all its aspects. So much love.
I have loved podcasts and Rookie, so the two of them put together is a dream come true! I was listening to Ted Xteen and when Tavi Gevinson started talking about her blog cite and i just had to check it out! I did and loved it. I just love how Rookie talks about how being a teen really is. This Podcast is my go to when needing something to help get through the spare time with.
This podcast is definitely not for me. I'm 44, M, father of two. One of my charging kids is a surly 14 yo who needs to hear a more diverse range of voices. We're listening to your episodes together and it's clear she gets it. Love it. Keep up the great work.
