    Episode Description:

    This week, at the suggestion of a 14-year-old listener, we bring you stories from the awkward, confusing, hormonally charged world of middle school. Including a teacher who transforms peer pressure into a force for good, and reports from the frontlines of the middle school dance.

    (Pictured: 7th graders at a costume dance, dressed as characters from The Outsiders.)
