About This Show
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.
