Episode 250: I’m Bored! Plus, Kendal Esquerre on Representation

11th April 2018

Who cares if the kids are bored? We want to be bored, too! We explore the idea that being bored may be a missing step to achieving self-care, as well as other mind-blowing concepts like, “Boring acts aren’t the same as being bored,” and, “Being bored while doing something for someone doesn’t count!” (We promise it’s not boring!!) Plus, we talk to Kendal Esquerre about LGBTQ representation in the media and teens!
