About Us

Lyssa Mandel and co-host/boyfriend Phil Casale invite guests to share and discuss creative artifacts from their adolescence. Pieces include poetry, drawings, journal entries, Wicca boxes and everything else that bursts forth from our formative years. It’s painful, poignant and funny. Think of it as Judy Blume meets Dr. Phil sans the Judy Blume and Dr. Phil.
