Vicarious Euphoria: Ranking Favorites from the ‘Heartstopper’ Soundtrack for Pride Month

“I loved seeing these queer teens live out their love stories on screen. But at the same time, I also felt so sad that I never got to do the same. That time in my life is gone. *POOF.* It’s disappeared, it’s over, and I’ll never get it back. So it also makes me deeply glad that we have shows like Heartstopper to show the beauty of the queer experience.”

– Hanna Smith, “Sounding Out with Izzy”

In the latest episode of “Sounding Out with Izzy,” Izzy is joined by special guest Hanna Smith, a journalist and child psychology expert, to discuss the beloved webcomic-turned-Netflix-teen-romance Heartstopper, and why it’s the perfect representation that they never got to have as teenagers.
