Never Wear Boring Socks Podcast

Anna and Maria, two sock-loving cousins making their ways through the peculiar soup that is young adulthood, talk about their creative endeavors, growing up, living intentionally, and the inevitable mishaps along the way. As Anna enters college and Maria enters the “real” world, both grapple with how best to lead fulfilling lives amidst change. They discuss all sorts of joys and challenges pertaining to these turbulent periods of life, from art to confidence to mindset to zucchini. The cousins believe in finding joy in everyday moments, and live according to the idea that if you’re going to wear socks anyway, you might as well make the most of the experience and wear interesting ones. Also, they like to open their minds to new ideas and perspectives, so every fifth episode they invite a special guest to join the discussion. Tune in for a weekly dose of amusement, inspiration, honesty, self-reflection, goofiness, and, of course, sock talk!
