In the world of Netflix’s Big Mouth, an animated comedy about tweens stumbling their way through the mysteries of puberty, every character has a “hormone monster.” Literally, a horned monster that can appear (and disappear) out of nowhere and embodies each character’s innermost urgings. When a character is caught masturbating at a friend’s house, he is whisked away by a Voldemort-like “Shame Wizard” and tried in Shame Court. In short, the show externalizes the turmoil of puberty to surreal, often hilarious effect.

Life Kit hosts Anya Kamenetz and Cory Turner talked to the creators of Big Mouth, life-long friends Andrew Goldberg and Nick Kroll about surviving puberty and shedding light on the “shameful” moments many of us keep to ourselves.
