Are there any Podcasts that you would recommend?
“I don’t listen to many but Teenager Therapy is one I’ve enjoyed because it gives me the platform to hear people my age talking about what’s going on in the world.”
-Jay Weber, Sophomore
“Today In True Crime because it’s interesting to know the things people can get away with and what they can’t.”
-Grace Sponseller, Junor
“My favorite podcast would be Welcome to Night Vale because it’s just about a radio show in strange town in the middle of a desert. Nothing really makes sense there, and that’s the point. The storyline is actually pretty good, and the writers of the podcast have actually produced four books that go along with the plot of the podcast.”
-Alisa Gomez, Senior
Are there any Artists that you would recommend?
“I recommend Mitski because all of her songs are beautiful and she has songs for every mood.”
-Avery Comparet, Junior
“I recommend Ricky Montgomery because he makes really lowkey music thats super good and some of it is very relatable to teenagers.”
–Morgan Keller, Junior
“If you’re looking for chill, soft songs to listen to, Cavetown your person. His style of music is very mellow, with deep messages inside each song.”
-Zoë Mossburg, Senior
What does music mean to you?
“It allows me to not only express myself in ways words cannot, but it provides an escape from reality, a reality which is full of many rough moments and experiences.”
–Adesewa Ogunsusi, Junior
“Music gives me so much adrenaline and anytime I feel a bit down I put on my favorite songs and start jamming out!”
-Emma Bedwell, Senior
“It can relax, distract, entertain, or even send me to sleep. Without it life would feel significantly more boring. I can put on headphones and visualize a story using songs, giving me somewhere new to daydream to every time.”
–Savannah Copeland, Sophomore
