Toilet Talks is a podcast inspired by the fact that my friends and I have a range of conversations in the bathroom at school. We always hang out in the bathroom because it is the one way we can all be together and just talk. In this podcast, my friends and I talk about what it’s like to go to high school in NYC. I think this podcast represents my best work in the program this year because it shows how I have explored different ways to produce my writing.
