With the cost of living going up and the value of each hard-earned pound going down, it’s harder than ever to be a twenty-something navigating the big wide world of adult life. Nobody has it all figured out, yet the picture-perfect lives of people online would have us thinking otherwise.
We’re a community platform committed to creating a safe and trusted space for twenty-somethings to ask those big life questions and learn. We know that school didn’t prepare us for actual adult life so we’re here to bridge the gap. Whether it’s getting to grips with your finances, navigating a new career, cultivating that work/life balance or making new friends…
Our award-winning podcast and supportive community will be the teacher, friend and wingman you didn’t know you needed.
How it started
Our founder, Gaby Mendes, graduated from university in 2016 and shortly after found herself in what can only be described as a quarter-life crisis.
She decided that no twenty-something should feel ill-equipped for adulthood so after a short stint in teaching she left to build Talk Twenties.
Launched in 2020, the Talk Twenties Podcast helps you navigate your twenties with greater ease. We chat to some of the most inspiring people on the planet about the roller-coaster decade that is your twenties. Nobody has it all figured out, but each episode will help you get you one step closer.
How it’s going
In 2022 it was time to add some new branding and fresh perspective to the podcast, and so we welcomed Felix Kabutey Jnr as a co-host to sit alongside Gaby as they interview our amazing line-up of guests.
Felix previously founded W.I.G.Up (When I Grow Up), a platform with similar premise to Talk Twenties, and so the pair decided to join forces and build the platform all twenty-somethings are talking about!
