ROOKIE POD CAST | WHERE IS JUNE?

My obsession for podcasts are not a secret!  I recently found Rookie and have enjoyed listening to the wide variety of creatives and artists in interviews.  However, I’m not their target audience.  It’s really for all of our amazing teens!

Rookie is the podcast created by the online magazine Rookie.  Self described as “an independently run online magazine and book series founded in 2011 by Editor-in-Chief Tavi Gevinson. We publish writing, photography, and other forms of artwork by and for teenagers (and their cohorts of any age!). Our contributors and readers are from all over the world.”

The online magazine seems to have a little something for every type of teen.  I love how the categories include comics, beauty, books and friendship.  Such an amazing platform and community for teens.  As a reader or a contributor- I bet it’s empowering to know a teen voice has power.  I find it refreshing that the issues and topics tackled in the podcast are complex.  It’s not condescending and it is apparent the producers believe teens to be intelligent and thoughtful human beings.  The podcasts are not cleaned up-meaning there is swearing and a lot of honesty!

After listening and a quick scan of the online site, Rookie tends to be geared toward females-but many of the topics would be interesting for our young men too.

Share this with a teen in your life or anyone trying to successful raise a teen {without losing her mind!}.
