This podcast is a thorough attempt at encouraging teens to be passionate and proactive about worldly issues. Topics may be too advanced or uninteresting for younger kids, but for the budding tween or teen advocate, Express Yourself! fits right in. Segments occasionally drag in energy and pace, but the authenticity of an unscripted teen opinion will grab the attention of teens and parents alike. The producers of this podcast and its parent nonprofit have made it their mission to encourage teens to speak up about issues that affect them and the world they live in. This lesson, paired with Express Yourself!'s variety of topics, makes for a hopeful future for generations to come.

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.
