Episode 48: Survival, Revivals & Finales

Welcome back lovelies! Terrifying school shootings – how is this still a thing? We discuss how a man ran his car into students and then used a knife to attack others on The Ohio State University campus. As an alumna, Steph chats about the impact these types of incidents have on past, present and future students.

Gilmore Girls made its triumphant return to Netflix last week and it was too much too handle. SPOILER ALERT: we talk about the final four words of the last episode, and how Amy Sherman-Palladino’s writing is everything we could have asked for in the revival.

Piggy-backing on some more TV recap, Twitter was going crazy over HBO’s Insecure finale and we could not get enough. With Ash #teamIssa and Steph #teamLawrence we share all the feels we felt after watching this cliff-hanger finale, and how it relates to real-world dating.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

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
