October 1989 Teen Life: Reputations, Periods & World Statistics

Start listening

For once, the lead feature is not heavy with tragedy — it’s just a little research piece on stats about teens in the U.S. compared to other countries. Do WE find a way to end on a bummer note anyway? …Sorry, but yes, we do. We also discuss a piece that claims to help you “blow off” a reputation you might not want, and a collection of Sassy staffers’ most horrifying and graphic period stories. Beyond the features, we’re talking gum, toilet strat, cheaters, eye twitches, and much much more! Pull up your 3D socks and join us!
