Episode 47: Protests & Pressure

Greetings Millies! We’re back on the mic’s this week after a quick break. Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock was named People Magazine’s 2016 Sexiest Man Alive – we chat briefly on what makes him “sexy” and an overall good role model.

Shifting gears, we get into the powerful student protests that have taken place over the past week since America’s new President-elect was chosen. While the youth often get a bad rap for being lazy, glued-to-an-iPhone narcissists, we share how their recent public action combats generational stereotypes at a time when unity is needed the most.

Take some freakin’ action people and fight for what you believe in! We express the importance of supporting organizations like Refugee Rights, and subscribing to a newspaper or donating to ProPublica to keep trustworthy journalism alive.

Has dating become hopeless? A Rolling Stone article published yesterday explores the awkward, in-between space many Millennials are currently in as we try to achieve personal intimacy in the age of social media and internet dating. We give our favorite takeaways from the piece and our hopes for the future of relationships.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 46: Laughing While Podcasting

Welcome back lovelies! This week, we catch up on our favorite fall TV. From Westworld, Atlanta and Insecure to New Girl and Shameless, we are obsessed with everything that’s on TV. Check out our thoughts on this seasons top picks.

Sometimes when something hurts, laughing through the pain can be the only comfort. This is the approach we are taking when it comes to this year’s election. Listen to the ways we ease our political distress until election day on November 8th.

Laughter is can be awkward, especially in the workplace. We chat about our experiences with workplace humor as Millennials, and why it’s important to think twice before dishing out that semi-offensive joke.

Things are changing with TMH! Beginning this week, we will be releasing new episodes every two weeks. Thank you, as always, for listening!

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 28: A Chat with Emma Roller

Emma Roller

This week we sat down to chat with the DC-based journalist and fellow Millennial Emma Roller of The New York Times, who shared what it’s like working her dream job, how writing about the 2016 election has been a reporting roller coaster, and why her, and many Millennial women, battle with ‘imposter syndrome’.

“Everyone is going through something, even people who seem like they have their whole lives figured out.”

We also talked a bit about #Bey (of course we couldn’t avoid it!). Emma’s current pop culture obsession is #Lemonade – for many reasons, but mainly because of the political influence of the project. “You can’t call yourself a politics junkie and not know anything about Beyonce, because she is a big political figure of this time,” she says.

Listen above now to hear more from our conversation!
