Trigger Warning: Mention of suicide, sexual harassment/assault

We've all dealt with sexism in some form at some point in our lives, as cool teens, as cool adults, and everywhere in between. So let's talk about how this seemingly unavoidable part of life has changed and maybe not changed throughout the years. (Also we have some pretty important teen updates for you, Snapchat didn't work for about 3 hours, it was a state of emergency in the teen world.)

We're back this week with a ghost who replaced Rileigh and now is just a scratchy, spooky voice from the void. (Actually Rileigh is just really sick so we know her voice doesn't sound great and we know our episode is late, but it's hard to do an audio podcast without one of us being able to make audible noises.) So since we have a spooky new teen voice joining us, let's talk about Halloween and all the things that make or break a perfect Halloween celebration as a teen! Also, sexy Babadook is THE costume this year, you heard it here first.

It's September! Which means it's basically almost practically Autumn, the spookiest and most exciting season of the year! Since it's our littlest sister's last Autumn in high school, let's talk about all that comes with the best season of the year for high schoolers, like football games and homecoming and...dressing like pumpkins? And apparently corduroy and suede and...velvet? Are we back in the 90s?
