    By Jazmin Kopotsha Posted on 28 Mar 2017

    We all know that adulting is hard. As in, there aren’t nearly enough memes in the world to fully explain just how fantastically awkward it is to try and be an actual, legitimate grown up (because what does being a grown up even mean?).

    But thankfully, we’ve got something that might make the whole process of navigating this big and beautiful (scary) thing we call life a little bit better. And it comes in the form of The DebriefThe Debrief’s very own podcast. Did you just cheer? We cheered.

    That’s right, we’re hitting the audio waves to share some life lolz and actually helpful wisdom to try and answer those weird questions about being a functional human being that you’ve Googled but still can’t get your head around. It’s kind of like Ask An Adult for your ears. Exciting, ain’t it.

    Each week The Debrief’s Stevie and Tessa will be on hand (erm, headphones?) to help you get your life together. They’ll be doing all of the hard, boring research for you into the things that you actually need to know to get by in life.

    Each episode will be full of info from experts in various fields of adulating and the first one (which is available right now, btw) is called ‘How To Meet New People When You’re So, So Lonely’. Stevie and Tessa will be talking all things loneliness which, if we’re honest, isn’t spoken about enough. From how social media is stopping us from physically speaking IRL (which is an important part of being a human, honest) to worrying about going to parties and those other social situations that require interacting with people.
