Four high-achieving students redefine what it means to be successful beyond the books. Traditionally, a wooden spoon is given to the person who comes last in a race. Instead of lingering on the failure of coming last, that same wooden spoon can be put to work and become something useful. The Wooden Spoon is a podcast about success, but more importantly, what success really looks like after you finish school and take on the real world. It's no longer defined by a grade - it's about living a successful life that is unique to you.

Insightful and entertaining

As someone who just finished my doctoral studies, I have experienced my share of anxiety related to personal and perceived success. This podcast has reminded me that others cannot assign us value — that is something we must do for ourselves. The Fab Four are wise beyond their years, and this comes through in each episode as they are given a chance to share their experiences and insights. Plus, they have great chemistry and I often found myself smiling or even laughing out loud. Thank you so much for the thoughtful podcast, and I hope there will be more seasons to come!

The Wooden Spoon

Just finished every episode and let me just say...I AM OBSESSED! I loved every single episode so much! I’m so glad I’ve listened to this podcast! It has opened my eyes to so many topics that are very hard to discuss with others! Just listening to these four people talk about it helps me a lot. Especially learning about what they think of these topics and it helps me personally of seeing how others struggle in different ways. I love that they aren’t scared to take on these tough topics! I need more episodes...ASAP!

Great

Excellent cast, very well researched and organized, good for motivation and tips for overcoming university specific struggles. I really enjoy the dynamic between the hosts, they seem like genuine friends. I do wish they talked more about their specific paths of study, like maybe they could do a question and answer sesh with each other, or they could each have a segment once a cast where they divulge their favorite things. (I'm also a philosophy student/teacher, and it's such an esoteric field. Would like to hear more about Ruby's experiences, and Eve's law school stuff. Jade could easily give creative writing tips, and Jack's full of book reccs I imagine.) Four stars because there aren't enough episodes! I do hope that they are not finished casting, but taking a break through exams/summer.

One of my favorite podcasts!

I came over from Eve’s youtube channel, not really knowing the others and I’ve got to say, over the course of the series, everyone has taught me so much!

One of My New Favorite Podcasts!

I absolutely loved this podcast! Everyone was so easy and fun to listen to, the topics were relevant and well represented each episode, and the puns were off the wall! Breaking episodes into seasons is such a refreshing idea and makes the show more manageable, but now I have to wait for a second season! Love the show, keep it up, and I can’t wait for more!

Sooooo gooooood !!!!

I loved this podcast so much - it was funny whilst thought provoking, easy listening but at the same time puts forward some arguments/solutions to issues facing younger people today. The atmosphere is really relaxed and the four seem to get on well and all seem really honest and down to earth. Really good advice and tips too x

The Wooden Spoon, more like The Wooden SOON TO HAVE SEASON 2!!!!

Aghhh, this podcast has really spoken to me for some reason. I’m a student doing their GCSE’s this year and revision is basically taking over my life, but with the help of these 4 beans I know I’ll get through my exams just fine. Perfect to listen to whilst you study, exercise, anything really! Whenever you need motivation, give this thing a listen! I really hope these guys get a season 2, they’ve clearly put so much effort into creating this podcast!! Love you guys!!! Xxxx

Stupendous

Heard about WS from Jack on YouTube! Such an enjoyable podcast, I’ve learned so much! Really appreciate you four taking all the time and work to make it! Having on in the background while I work/ travel/ study is a treat for my busy, constantly wandering brain 😝.

Amazing!

Brilliant! 4 young people who are very well spoken, and have wisdom beyond their years. So true to themselves and with a clear understanding of how they are as people. Every Monday I come to the beach on my day off, go for a short walk and then sit alone on the beach and listen to the rest.
