Dear Young Rocker

After writing a memoir about her adolescence, Chelsea Ursin hit a roadblock. Publishers told her a book deal would be nearly impossible because no one knew who she was. So, eventually, she took that memoir and created Dear Young Rocker. The A.V. Club wrote “this podcast exploring the relationship between gender, rage, and the power of music is like an unearthed time capsule containing a forgotten strain of teendom.” Chelsea calls it a podcast for the weirdos, the loners, and the ugly ducklings. Hear her tell her story and sing a song on episode 66 of The Path to Authenticity.

The Path to Authenticity is a podcast for people looking for more from life. It focuses on emotional wellness and the pursuit of one’s authentic self, starting from the premise that our true power comes from our individuality. We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait.  They’re people who know who they are.  We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.
