About this Project:
"We Secretly Hate Each-Other" is a podcast created by two best friends called Jia and Minnie. In this podcast, they share their opinions on things that are happening in the world and happened in their life to the listeners. The podcast format works basically like a phone call. Relax, cheerful, sometimes weird.

Wonderful idea and podcast! Podcast are usually adult speaking which makes your podcast unique. Your stories are relatable and funny. I believe you could help other kids your age feel less alone. Please continue to work on this and gain momentum. You should also start to look into getting sponsors you feel connect well with your brand.

Loveeeee this. I'd love to see you lean more into the phone theme, maybe add some cool sound effects like a dial tone as transitions or disconnection as your closer. Great idea y'all.

Ok first of all, you two are hilarious. I laughed so many times when reviewing your project, both when I looked at your slides and when listening to episodes (especially the Jia's editorial commentary!)! Maybe you should try stand-up comedy! I really hope you continue to develop this podcast because I think a lot of other teens would enjoy it and relate to it. One thing you could do in the future is to break your show into "segments" that you do in every episode, like starting with a News segment where you give funny updates on your lives and an Interview segment where you ask a guest silly questions. You could even start doing fake commercials for funny products. No matter what, I hope you keep doing this because it's great.
