Do you know a movie buff? Do they enjoy comedy? Are they dipping their toe into the culinary world, or are they looking for a new perspective on the world around them? These days, there’s a podcast for everyone.
You no longer need a million-dollar recording studio or David Attenborough to bring you to the top of the charts. Instead, it turns out; you only need a mic, some editing software, and something to talk about.
Podcasts are an excellent way for teens and young adults to connect with like-minded people from around the world. At LIFT, we’ve seen firsthand the benefits of listening to podcasts and even hosting one for young adult guests to give their perspectives on the world around them.
There are hundreds of podcasts for the older generations, but what about the teens? It is our mission to make sure we always include them.
So, we've picked six podcasts for young adults that are sure to grab their attention and have them binge listen to every episode.
A podcast where we turn our attention to today's youth, viewpoints, and passions. We are a part of LIFT Teen Center in rural Suttons Bay, MI, where we empower youth to discover and embrace their strengths and encourage them to become kind leaders by investing in their evolution, autonomy, and character. This world is not one size fits all, and our youth are no exception.
A bite-sized podcast that dives deep into the difficulties of growing up and discusses important issues. This podcast is great for young adults, especially young women. They discuss anxiety, depression and answer questions on various topics to help listeners understand the world around them.
A young adult podcast with an educational twist! Each episode teaches the listener about how something works in the world. The topics range from the girl scout organization, the appendix, the Titanic, to space junk, and lighthouses. Each episode is an hour-long and packed full of epic information.
A podcast geared towards teens as they make their way through one of the most challenging times in life. Five teens host this podcast and give experience-backed advice as they talk about the struggles of being a teenager and how they can work together to survive high school. "Because we have problems too."
5. Hey YA!
They are bringing the page to the podcast! This podcast is here to promote the world of young adult literature by bringing it to the podcast world. From new books to classic literature, adaptations to interviews, Hey YA! is the perfect gateway to a young adult's love of literature.
Not everyone is a history buff, but you might be after listening to this podcast. Each episode discusses events that you may have missed during history class while you were taking a nap. From stamp collecting to gardening in America, there's an episode for all.
We might be a bit biased, but we like our podcast the best. If you haven't had a chance to check out Generation Perspective, we highly recommend it.
