About the Podcast

First of all, we'd like to welcome you and thank you for stopping by. Our team is looking to become a positive student-driven voice in our greater community, and we can’t wait for you to join us. Throughout the semester our podcast will address many topics in our weekly episodes, including depression, body image, our COVID-19 experience, the California wildfires, the value of education, women empowerment, social media’s effect on youth, along with any current topics that may arise. As you may have noticed, many of our chosen topics are rather heavy - if you will - so our goal is to provide an empathetic, story-based platform, by which we can explore previously hidden, or masked, topics. We’d like to serve our community, and despite our best efforts, there will be topics that JLS is passionate about that we do not cover, so please reach out to us to share your ideas. We believe it is important for students to have a space like this run by their peers, and so we’d also like to invite you to participate in the podcast by submitting your stories anonymously or coming on-air with our team. Thank you again, and enjoy listening!

YOu got Stories?

Our podcast survives off of listener engagement. Rather, it thrives off of it. The basis of our podcast has and always will be supporting our listeners. It is our belief that students need a peer-led space such as this one to share their stories and voice their beliefs.

I hope to foster a kind and empathetic environment for JLS students, in which we can discuss difficult topics without judgment. The team and I hope to be there for students in their worst and best moments - and be a kind and positive voice throughout. I cannot wait to serve you as the director of the podcast.

My goal as a contributor to this podcast is to create a safe space for our students and peers in the JLS and PAUSD community. I feel as though it is my job to create clean, organized, and interesting episodes with the materials we have and under the circumstances we are in.

My job is to listen to all the episodes before they’re uploaded, help draft all the outlines, and help think about the topics and the subtopics of all the episodes. I love this podcast team, I hope we can present our episode well to the whole JLS and help to make a great environment.

As Media Manager, I create posts for each episode release and make the music tracks heard during each podcast episode. I believe that it's essential to fully understand issues that can be uncomfortable for people to talk about and educate other students in a safe environment.
