Episode 5: Heroes, Headlines, Horrors and Homecomings

Five is live! In this week’s episode, we tackle some hot topics with our special guest, our friend and fellow journo – Joi. From Rihanna and Rachel to Kim K and the Kardashians, we were here for everything Twitter had to say about two controversial statements published this week in the popular Vanity Fair and Cosmopolitan magazines.

Switching gears, we also dive into what has been one of America’s biggest policy dilemmas over the past few years – gun control. Last week, a 26-year-old man opened fire and killed nine at a college campus in Oregon. Afterwards, Obama made some statements about our gun control laws, adding that “our thought’s and prayers are not enough.” Some media outlets have begun to label this another case of mental illness gone wrong, but could this be the only answer?

Despite the tragedy, many students and alumni will be flocking to their college campuses in the coming weeks for homecoming. We’re taking this opportunity to talk about our varied undergraduate experiences as black women.

We want to hear your thoughts so please comment below and make sure to check out Joi’s blog HERE!

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO
