Growing Up! podcast

with Martin Blazinšek

I am Martin Blazinšek, a teenager trapped in an adult body. This is the Growing Up Podcast! 🤘

I'm recording this podcast mainly because I'm struggling with a midlife crisis. Through conversations with young people and those who are young at heart, I want to go back to my high school and college years. Here we learn together what it's like to be a teenager these days. So, what do young people do in their free time, where do they party, how do they study and how do they think. Above all, how they plan to change the world.
