New Sincerity Podcast Cover Art by Georgina Hawitt

***

This week's Summer Student Takeover piece is from the creators of the New Sincerity Podcast.

How does it feel to grow up in a world that is fighting for its life? Not awesome. That said, it can really help to talk through the fear and dread that comes with the current environmental crisis, and find solidarity among friends.

Join the New Sincerity gals, as we chat environmental impacts on life planning and mental health.

This podcast contains some swearing and explicit language.
