Puriteens (TEASER)

Rehash - A podcast by Rehash - Luni

Nobody wants to be a stick waving old man, but what happens when it’s that stick waving old man who’s telling young people to loosen up? After a series of studies from 2021 reported that teenagers are having less sex than the generations before them, a strange phenomenon has unfolded on the internet. Younger people are being morally conservative, older people are responding by calling younger people “puriteens” (puritanical teens), and then other older people are calling those older people “stick waving old men”. In this Patreon bonus episode, Hannah and Maia wade through the muddy waters of this discourse, and attempt to find nuance in what has become a full on panic from all sides. What the hell happened here? Tangents include: Hannah travelling 5 hours to see DJ James Kennedy in Ottawa, and Maia telling everyone in middle school she had an “orgasm” at the New Moon premiere.
