Episode 40: Anthems & #Aubrih

Welcome back #TMH listeners! This week, we tackle the controversy surrounding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the playing of the national anthem. We discuss how his race, upbringing, and his NFL platform all play into him taking a stand against police brutality in the U.S., and how social media reacted to his actions.

The 2016 MTV VMA’s did not disappoint this year – with four different stunning Rihanna performances, a 16-minute Beyonce show and an obnoxious Kanye rant, it was undoubtedly an entertaining night. We share our (Ashley’s) obsession with the birth of #AubRih and why Drake presenting Rihanna with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award was the cutest moment in the history of the VMA’s.

Do nice guys always finish last? We chat about the patience many Millennials lack when it comes to finding “the one”, and the need to stay away from the Chris Brown’s and wait for your Drake.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 27: #Views, Wilmore & Women

Welcome back! Last week, Drake dropped his fourth studio album – Views. We give our first impressions of the project and ponder which long-lost love our favorite sappy rapper is singing about.

Obama’s last White House Correspondents Dinner was held this past Saturday, and Comedy Central’s Larry Wilmore had everyone’s jaw hitting the floor as he dealt countless low-blows during his speech. We give our reactions to his choice of jokes, especially his use of the ‘N’ word toward the President.

Gender inequality in the U.S. workplace is an ongoing problem that the #Millennial generation is facing – especially women of color. Stephanie shares her key takeaways from The Atlantic’s ‘Women, Fairness and Power’ event this past weekend and how we can combat this issue in the future.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash
