Hi hi, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted a video on this channel (life is still crazy), but I’m still here and bugging my friends to make podcasts with me. In this episode, Laura and Lance join me in a conversation about the rise of nerd culture and how things are…better? I guess. We also dive into discussions about what it means to be an American and find your identity and sexual identity during the growing pains of high school.
About an hour was cut out of this episode for the sake of time and will be released as shorter clips later. So watch out for those.
