A podcast where we talk about the strange things we did and felt as teenagers

Latest Episodes

Episode 10: Party Like it’s 2003

In this episode, I'm joined by an old school friend Kerry to reminisce about some of the parties we went to in our youth. This is not a deep discussion by any means but does contain plenty of chat about weirdnesses (all pretty much enacted by me), three/four-way kissing (is four-way even possible?), jelly shots and a heartbreaking tale of rejection.

Episode 9: Bodies

In this episode, I'm joined by another returning guest Abigail Tazzyman to discuss our teenage relationships to our bodies. Content note: we touch on topics like disordered eating and some quite negative feelings we had towards our bodies. But it's not all doom and gloom! We also discuss bad diet tips, chicken pies and the hope we placed on one sit-up to make us have abs like Britney.

Episode 8: The Diaries of Three Teenage Nobodies

In this bumper episode, I'm joined by returning guests Sophie Coulombeau and Kate Lancaster.As you’d expect, there’s a lot of cringing and laughing at our v. earnest and narcissistic past selves, but there’s also quite a lot of interesting chat about our relationships with our diaries, how we spoke to them and why they were important. Special mention goes out to Sophie’s last will and testament, which is a triumph of self indulgence and true commitment to Hanson’s musical talents. Sound quality not the best on this episode, apologies, will be better next time!

Episode 7: Unrequited Love

In this episode I'm joined by my friend Jenny to discuss a classic teenage experience: unrequited love. Jenny regales us with her boy-related mishaps and her enthusiastic attempts to navigate the very confusing world of school crushes. Prepare for mercenary mars bars, love calculators, a seductive but perplexing poem and a super awkward cinema outing.

Episode 7: Unrequited Love

Episode 6: Living the American Dream

It was a very long summer okay? We're back with an episode on being exactly the kind of teenager I aspired to be: American, rich and popular. I am joined by my friend Cait as we talk hooking up, homecoming and hot tubs, contrasting the less-than-glamorous lifestyle I led during my youth (less proms, more fields). Whilst Cait did not identify as an angsty teen, there was still a fair bit of heartache, confusion and a residual bitterness at boys' preferences for those 'sophomore sluts'.

Episode 6: Living the American Dream

Bonus Episode: Dirty Pop

As we are currently on a summer break we are diverging slightly from the usual weirdo stuff for a more in depth nostalgia fest. In this bonus episode, I am joined by Catherine Evans to discuss our greatest, deepest and most long-lasting love: pop music from the late 90s and early 00s. We chat about our favourite artists of that time and our failed attempts to emulate them, the music videos that had a lasting impression on us, which S Club 7 member we most related to and why Nicky from Westlife should have been TIME magazine's most influential person of the year 2000.

Episode 5: Poetry

In the fifth episode of the podcast, I am joined by Kate Lancaster, 'the people's poet', to read out and discuss some of our teenage poetry. The cringe factor is high as we discuss why we did it, our influences (Shakespeare for Kate, Shakira for me), the life events that inspired us and, tangentially, how the smell of Lynx Africa still makes us have intense feelings.

Episode 4: Internet Chat

In the fourth episode of the podcast, I am joined by my friend Ruth to discuss our earliest interactions with social media and what I awkwardly term 'talking to people on the internet'. We chat about making friends with people we didn't know (a/s/l?), our desperate attempts to seek attention online and the pivotal role MSN Messenger played in making us the amazing communicators we are today.

Episode 3: Catfishing

In the third episode of the podcast, I am joined by Abigail Tazzyman to discuss the proto-catfishing we embarked upon in that most terrible of school years, Year 9. We (mainly Abi) manage to spin our actions into a feminist empowerment narrative that allowed us to explore identities, desires and sex within a 'safe' environment whilst pretending to be other people. We are not very sorry we did it, but are still cringing at our terrible sexting attempts.

Episode 2: Fan Fiction

In the second episode of the podcast, I am joined by my friend Sophie to discuss 'when celebrity crushes go wrong: fan fiction edition'. We read out some of our recently re-discovered fan fiction about two boys you might know called Taylor Hanson and Nick Carter. We talk about why we did it, how it allowed us to explore our burgeoning sexual identities and the dubious gender politics within our narratives. Most crucially, we learn about the effectiveness of condoms (98.9%) and just how easy it is to cheat on Russell Crowe.
