The day is finally here, the day our littlest Smirl sister has officially graduated high school! Before we dive into summer break, we're going over all the high points of the social event of the season: (apparently?) Rileigh's high school's graduation. From the speeches to the awards ceremonies, we've got it all. So come join us in congratulating our babiest of sisters.

Well, our littlest Smirl sister has completed high school at last. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're taking a look back at all of our high school years and discussing all of our regrets, best moments, and advice to our past selves and all of you cool teens who are still in high school. Come join us on our walk down memory road since we're all officially high school graduates now!

Live from the Columbus Podcast Festival, the sisters play the hot teen game, The Game of Phones! Although Teylor got it confused with something else and it turned into an emoji-off, it still made for some fun, sisterly rivalry live from the Short North Stage in beautiful Columbus, Ohio!

Backpacks. An integral part of every teen/school experience. Something that seems as if it's remained constant throughout time, but has it? Despite the general idea remaining the same, a lot has changed about how the teens use their backpacks and what they keep in them, and sadly, they can't return them and get a new one for free every time it breaks now.

So Sydnee found this book, and it's a very bad book, but it makes for very good talking points on our show, so that's what we're sharing with you today. Apparently teen girls in the 80s had a lot of rules, from archetype roles they had to fit into to how they could eat corn, there's a lot there to talk about and we're doing it all.

Teens these days are living their lives inside of their apps, and not the delicious kind that you eat before dinner, but the tech kind that live in their phones! So we're consulting the internets and finding what apps adults think teens are into and what apps other teens think teens are into to see who's actually right.

Our babiest sister is fresh off of Senior Prom weekend and is here to give us the inside scoop! We've covered prom before, but now we have a firsthand account of what prom is actually like on this inside. From dancing to "DJs" and everything else we've covered a cool t33n prom from start to finish.

Happy week 2 of the MaxFunDrive! To celebrate our youngest Smirl's impending graduation, we decided to come up with a definitive playlist of the best songs to encapsulate the aura of senior year and graduation, from Vitamin C to Taylor Swift these sisters have all of their decades covered, and you're in for a TREAT.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, the MaxFunDrive! To kick off our yearly celebration of our MaximumFun family, we're diving into the most popular "teen life hacks" of the 90s and of today, and if any of them actually do what they're supposed to do and, well, hack your life.

It's Sydnee's birthday, so she can finally run for president! Also, our babiest sister just got back from a fun, big kid road trip, so we're talking about them! From the perfect car snack, to music, to road trip duties based on seating position, we have created the ten commandments of road trips, so come on a trip with us!

We've joked for a long time about our collective feelings towards Claire's, a mall staple for decades, and now (maybe unsurprisingly?) they're closing for good. So let's take a look back on what malls were for teens "back in the day" and what they are now!

As requested by a listener, Emma, this week, the sisters are talking about flirting! Sydnee is a self-proclaimed "expert" in flirting, Rileigh believes she is somewhere in the middle, and Teylor is very open about how bad she thinks she is at flirting. From the ~look~ to the mixtapes, flirting spans the ages, just like our sisters, so let's talk about it!

The new Netflix original, "Everything Sucks!" was basically designed to be discussed on our podcast, so here we are discussing it! On our podcast! From stereotypical 90s fashion to the 90s being /that/ 90s, we've covered it all, so of course, there will be spoilers if you haven't seen the show yet. But, it only takes five hours to watch the whole first season, so we'll see you when you're done binging.

We're back with an all new edition of Ask a Teen, where you all can ask America's Favorite Teen, Rileigh Smirl, all of your most dire generation z-centered questions. Also, Cooper is back by popular demand this week with even more of her world famous baby noises!

It's been a rough week here in America, and we want to talk about it because it seems like teenagers are finally on the front page for something other than Tide pods and fidget spinners, and that something is much bigger than teens have been known for in recent history. (Also, this week we're joined by our favorite fourth host, Cooper McElroy!)

Sorry for the late upload this week again, but one of our sisters had a baby! To celebrate the arrival of another McElroy who showed up just a day before Valentine's Day, we're talking about the day of ~love~ that so many people seem to, well, not love.

We're sorry for another late upload, it is apparently the time of year where everyone is sick with everything all of the time, including our sisters. But, Rileigh has some exciting news to share and we want to talk about it! So come join us this week as we discuss what body parts you could technically remove and sicknesses that result in dislocation of your eyes....Wait, what?

The flu season is in full swing, and unfortunately 2/3 of this podcast have contracted some sort of flu-like bug. Not to fear though! The sisters still have an episode for you this week all about the best and worst parts of sick days off of school and work. Even Sydnee's weird and short-lived obsession with soap operas.

We kind of talked about Tide pods last week, but this week we went ALL in on Internet challenges. We talked about all of the dumb and dangerous things teens have been doing on the Internet for views and likes and all the things teens used to do before they even got views. Apparently doing something stupid with everything from compressed air to condoms will get you all of those likes! (But don't do them) (also the word "ass" is in this episode once but as a title so we're still friendly for your family's ears we promise)

We're sorry this episode is a day late, but we're all really really bad about procrastinating, so that's what we decided to talk about! This episode covers all of the ways to navigate a last minute assignment from Cliff's Notes to Sparknotes and...Tide pods?

This week, our eldest Smirl sister is too sick to make goofs, so we put together some of our favorite and best goofs from all of our shows to make up for it! From Teylor waking up with her hand in a bowl of pasta to our 12 Days of Candlenights song we wrote this holiday season, we have it all! And we'll be back with a regular episode next week!

The holiday season may be over, but the spirit of Candlenights lives on all year round! So to save you from those post-holiday blues, here is our live episode from this year's Candlenights Spectacular in our very own hometown of Huntington, West Virginia! We wrote a song, things got a little weird, there were many Buscemis and scrunchies.

We're less than one week away from Christmas and only a day away from Candlenights, so let's talk about one of the most popular holiday movies of this season, A Christmas Prince. It's magical and terrible and hilarious and confusing and we want you to watch it, we think. Also, major super spoiler warning for A Christmas Prince, just in case.

We did a live show! At PodCon! In Seattle! We talked more about Claire's because it's been a while since we've reminded you all of the many joys and horrors of that store, and we had a sisterly secret Santa that may have been messed up by our littlest sister. Oh and we threw out scrunchies, lip smackers, and earrings, so if you were there we hope you enjoy and if you weren't...well...we're sorry.

Finals and exams and holiday shopping are all happening at once, so we all need a little bit of an energy boost, so why not down a few Red Bulls and Surges? Caffeine becomes a part of nearly everyone's life during the stressful teen years, so let's talk about it! Also, we created our first hit track for the Still Buffering album, stay tuned.
