The New Adults SD is a podcast produced by DH Center Programs & Operations Specialist, Patrick  Flanigan. The New Adults SD podcast captures lively discussions of three teenage friends living in San Diego about their experiences and perspectives as new adults. The podcast focuses on various topics and challenges that all "new adults" encounter such as working, driving, school, and more. The idea for the podcast first began as a sound check by host Patrick Flanigan to test out new podcasting equipment. Patrick enlisted his daughter Grace and her two friends, Kaitlyn and Laurel, to just talk for 30 minutes. The podcasting experience was so fun and insightful for all involved, the idea of an ongoing series was embraced.
