Episode 51: Moonlight

Hey, Millies! A few thousand miles and technical difficulties couldn’t hold us back too long – this week we are happily reunited with each other and with you lovely listeners – welcome back. ūüôā

The¬†89th Academy Awards were held this past Sunday and our favorite Oscar wins included¬†Viola Davis taking home Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Fences¬†and Moonlight¬†taking home Best Picture. We chat about the awkward¬†award announcement mix up and discuss if this years’ wins showed improvement from the 2016 #OscarsSoWhite backlash on Hollywood.

Over the weekend Steph attended a live podcast taping in NYC for the hip-hop and pop culture podcast, The Read – a question from the audience sparked a controversial discussion on societal gender roles in the current dating scene for Millennials. We share our personal thoughts on the topic, as well as the importance of open-mindedness and inclusion at a time when gender issues are on the front lines.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 49: Publicity & Podcasting

Welcome back Millies! We hope our east coast listeners are staying warm on these brutally cold days, it’s very burr.

Kanye West is at it again with his attention seeking shenanigans Рearlier this week the musician was seen at the Trump Tower in New York for a mysterious meeting with president-elect Donald Trump. We share our thoughts (and disappointment) in what some are calling a publicity stunt.

Diversity and representation in¬†media is a topic near and dear to our hearts. After seeing the #SupportPOCPods hashtag on Twitter last week, we were inspired to discuss why it’s important now more than ever to have a diverse spectrum of storytellers in media, especially in podcasting.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 16: Jada, Jobs and Jonas

Welcome back! We kickstart this week by asking why the #OscarsSoWhite ? Jada Pinkett Smith began the conversation by announcing she will not attend an awards ceremony that is not representative of diverse talent. Since her Facebook video post, people have been discussing on social media what it will take for people of ALL cultures to be nominated and featured in the Oscars ceremony.

According to a recent study by Deloitte, many millennials do not envision themselves staying in their current job past the year 2020. Is the lack of company-loyal millennials a positive or negative thing?

#Jonas2016 had all of Washington, D.C. shut down. From Lifetime biopics to new TVLand shows, we share how we spent our bingeworthy snowcation.

This is The Millennial Hour.
