Kids These Days

Coming June 17

Teenagers. Always on their phones (but don’t know how to make a phone call). Endlessly curating their identities on Instagram. Unprepared for “the real world.” These are some of the stereotypes of Generation Z. But are they accurate? What are young people really thinking about, laughing about, and stressing about right now?

Kids These Days offers an insider’s perspective on what it’s like to be a teenager today.

This limited-run podcast is hosted by teens, and is a collaboration between Community High School in Ann Arbor and Michigan Radio’s Peabody Award-winning podcast team.
