A Society, Culture and Personal Journals podcast featuring
 3 people rated this podcast
Travel back in time to remember the good, bad, and awkward parts of growing up. Recorded live on stage, adults share the weird and wonderful things they wrote as children and teens. Embarrassing, moving, and hilarious, these readings are powerful reminders of who we used to be. The Guardian says "it has much charm," while Splitsider describes GRTTWaK as "equal parts cringe-worthy and cathartic."

This is one of if not my favorite podcast for the simple reason that it's everyday people sharing their story with everyone. I also enjoy the combination of funny stories and the deeper ones because it allows the listeners to understand that children growing up go through different emotions and experiences. Once again this podcast has a fantastic approach to how we all grew up. In a way this podcast inspired me to keep going with my podcast to interview everyday people about their hobbies. Keep up the good work.
This show is a staple of road trips with my wife. It is hilariously relatable to hear all the things that kids say, and to hear those things read by the same person years later.
