Happy July lovelies! This week we kickstart our discussion with the latest Serial podcast update. A judge ordered a retrial for Adnan Syed after a 1999 lifetime conviction for murdering his former girlfriend, Hae Min Lee. We talk about how the podcast helped shed light on the case that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.
According to new 2015 U.S. Census data, babies of color are making news this week by outnumbering their non-Hispanic white counterparts. Although NPR couldn’t reach any babies for comment, we chat about the societal impact this could have and compare our childhood experiences.
Fourth of July weekend was rainy in D.C. but thankfully Ashley was in New Orleans. We catch up on her Essence Festival adventures and hint at what makes this July particularly special.
This is The Millennial Hour.
