American Youth

After walking through a busy street in New York City, I realized I knew nothing about the people surrounding me. All the faces were those of strangers. Where were they from? How did they get here? Who were they? Out of this crowd an idea started. The goal on this platform is to make those faces familiar. That’s what “American Youth” is. It’s a deeper look into our society and its people, one discussion at a time. americanyouthpodcast.com

PRIDE series: My Story - The Story of Host Dustin Oliver

This week "American Youth" host Dustin Oliver sits down with ...himself... to talk about his coming of age story and becoming confident in his sexuality. From that first attraction, to discovering internet porn, all the way to where he is in his life now. This was especially challenging for me to release because I was nervous to tell my story. I hope I did that 12 year-old kid who was perfoming concerts to imaginary fans justice. Happy Pride. www.americanyouthpodcast.com American Youth Links: Instagram: @weareamericanyouth Twitter: @amyouthpodcast E-mail: americanyouthpodcast@gmail.com Website: americanyouthpodcast.com Instagram (personal): @dmylesoliver
