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.
"Everyone's tapping back into their childhood fantasies and obsessions."
“I don’t think you have to deny your essential self, but maybe you have to bring it fully to the game.”
"Every job I've ever had has been either making trouble or making change."
"When I was little, I threw myself against the screen and got kicked out of a movie theater. It was Fantasia. I wanted to get inside the movie. I didn't understand."
"I wouldn't be where I am today if I adhered to what people had to say about me."
"What you have to say is worth saying."
Welcome to the first ever episode of our brand new podcast!
