Season One of That YA Podcast is a contemporary novella optimised for the spoken word, told through dual narration in alternating chapters. This is Audible meets Wattpad in a compelling new creation that entwines the love of writing in a format that embraces the changing world of storytelling and celebrates consuming compelling content on the go.
That YA Podcast is one of the first of its kind, created especially for those who have a passion for young adult literature and audiobooks. Through its weekly instalments, That YA Podcast aims to enthral and captivate listeners, leaving them wanting more.
Season One follows the lives of two Melbourne high school students – Megan and Des. Entitled Fall For You, this is a story about love, toxic relationships, mental health, and university. But at its core are two girls, both struggling in their own ways, who come together in a whirlwind of romance which shows that the idea of ‘love at first sight’ is inherently flawed, love doesn’t cure all, and sometimes people don’t get what they deserve.
Bittersweet and raw, Megan and Des’s story reveals that life isn’t what it seems like in the books – it’s messy, and complex, and love is the most complicated thing of them all.
