Spill The Soup: The Jewish Teen Podcast

Welcome to Spill the Soup, where host Marley Comito gives insight into the life of a teenager in these incredible times. I really want to make this podcast serve as a way for young adults, parents, and others to be able to connect to today’s teenagers and the voices of Jewish Gen-Z in a unique and personal way. Spill the Soup will help me share what it’s like to truly be a teenager in today’s ever-changing world with those who feel a disconnect from the teenagers they know to bridge that gap and help them gain a greater understanding than ever before.
