Review On Adult Sh1t 'The Podcast Where We F*ck Up So You Don't Have To'

As I’m walking down the road freezing cold at eight in the morning, frazzled because I left too late and forgot my coffee on the kitchen counter, I catch myself still laughing thanks to the voices coming through my headphones.

I’ve never been one to listen to podcasts but now that I’ve started there ain’t no stopping.

“Adult Sh1t” is a podcast by Buzzfeeders Kelsey Darragh and Kate Peterman, and as they call it “the podcast where we f*ck up so that you don’t have to”. They share their thoughts and ideas about their own lives and the world around them every Thursday.

They are in their first season of the podcast and have made 19 episodes since their release date in October. The duo has guest speakers on quite regularly to talk about their careers or to just openly share insight on topics discussed.

For instance, Darragh and Peterman spoke with Kasey Koop, a writer, comedian, and stripper in episode nine. They conversed about taboo subjects of sex and being in the line of sex work in a way that opened the audience up to a firsthand insight. It opened the floor for the co-hosts to ask questions about Koop’s line of work that they were curious about, as well as what the audience may be interested in knowing.

Speaking of sex, they talk about it at least once every episode, so if that makes you uncomfortable then this probably isn’t the best podcast for you. Kelsey Darragh, co-host, is openly bi-sexual and vocal about her sex life; the good, the bad, and the ugly. While Kate Peterman is also in favor of exploring different parts of her bi-sexuality, yet she is much more reserved about the topic.

Regardless about how in depth either of them goes into their sex lives, they both consistently share intimate details about their own realities, which to me, makes me feel more connected to them as a listener; as if the advice they give and the experiences they share can directly relate to my life.

Both women talk about their struggles with anxiety and depression, something I can relate to on a personal level. Kate Peterman has even spoken about her adjustment to being on medication for mental illness, as well as being in therapy, and her binge eating disorder. Unfortunately, this podcast may be triggering to some people, but nonetheless, it makes others feel as if they’re not the only one struggling with certain things.

Undeniably, it has become a common trend in today’s day and age to see politics just about everywhere: from tv shows to Twitter. But I find it to be such a breath of fresh air that politics is hardly ever directly spoken about on “Adult Sh1t” (I mean if I wanted to listen to politics then I’d be listening to NPR). In my own observations, one of the only times I’ve heard them directly talk about politics was in the most recent episode, (so kudos to them for making it through 18 episodes beforehand).

As previously mentioned, “Adult Sh1t” is a very open and real podcast in many ways, but one way I believe they could reach an even wider audience is by having some male identifying guests on the podcast, too. They have yet to have an official male guest thus far, while they have had a multitude of female identifying guests.

Overall, I’m a huge fan of “Adult Sh1t”, and I have honestly not stopped recommending it since I started listening back in October (so you should probably go listen).

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
