This podcast serves as a beautiful safe space and inspiring community for kids experiencing the wild ride of adolescence. We Got You is an outstanding resource for tweens and teens going through the pains of life. The podcast broaches many sensitive, often stigmatized topics that are sometimes difficult to talk about with adults. Tweens openly and honestly share their experiences with the support of their older teens, inspiring a sense of camaraderie and hope. Where the pod sometimes falls short is in its attempt to provide quick and easy solutions to issues that are systemic and extremely complex. The show presents late teens as a "panel of experts" when it could have also benefited from a medical professional's perspective. That being said, it can serve as great conversation starter for tweens and trusted adults or as an independent listen for tweens struggling to express how they're feeling. It shouldn't be used as a sole resource for how to navigate difficult experiences or mental health issues. If you or a loved one needs to speak to someone they can reach out to YouthLine.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
