The 20 Something Experience

The 20 Something Experience

By Daniel Etomi
Being a young adult in any generation is difficult much more in this internet driven one. We have an immense amount of pressure on our shoulders to have it all figured out. In this podcast, we talk about being a young adult spanning across student and graduate life, what no one tells you about growing up, adapting to an ever-changing world, and we will learn from the experiences and stories of many guests. Together, we’ll figure this jigsaw called life out.

Mental Health: Real Men do Cry
Mental health is so vast and it's something we need to really normalise talking about especially within the male gender. There's a lot men go through that isn't spoken about enough. From suppressing emotions to being 'tough' guys, we need to address this negative idealogy of toxic masculinity. My guest and I speak about this and talk about our personal experience with mental health.

Unfortunately, we will not be proceeding with your application
This is the FINAL episode of the first season of this podcast, and talking about the 20 something experience without discussing job hunting would be incomplete. Job hunting is a critical process we all go through to get any job and sometimes it can be straightforward but most times it's a long, frustrating process that not a lot of us really understand. I was joined by my friend folusho, who currently has a training contract with a renowned law firm, to speak about our experiences in applying for jobs, the mistakes we've made, and the valuable tips we've gotten along the way.

End SARS
This is a deeply personal episode for me as the issue surrounding SARS and the country is one that can be felt by every Nigerian Youth. In this episode we speak about the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and the many crimes they’ve committed over the years. #EndSARS is more than just ending police brutality, it is symbolic of the extremely high levels of corruption we face in Nigeria. @Nayd and I discuss this and speak further about the recent protests across the country. We all have a part to play in this battle, and eventually we’ll have a country that we’re proud to be citizens of.
