Practical guidance for life’s stupid problems
Tavi Gevinson founded the online magazine Rookie in 2011, when she was fifteen-years-old. She wanted to create a space for teens that was free of messaging telling them who they should be and instead celebrated them for who they were. Rookie attracted a thriving community until it folded in 2018. Its now-grown readers still seek out its archive and book series today.
In this podcast, Tavi revives Rookie’s popular Life Skills column with brand new, encouraging but never prescriptive advice for coping with messy, personal conundrums. Like: How do I talk to people if I suck at talking to people? How can I embrace conflict instead of dreading it? How can I be creative if I’m scared? How do I talk back to my inner critic? How do I know if it’s time to end a friendship? How do I manage uncertainty? How can I create more pleasure and fabulousness in my life? And why are all of these things somehow so hard?
Nine incredible Rookie writers address these questions with Rookie’s signature thoughtfulness, humor, and appreciation for what makes us human.

This series just points fingers instead of taking self responsibility and rather than encouraging hard work it makes excuses.
