Episode 44: Metamorphosis

Happy Wednesday lovelies! Kim Kardashian-West was robbed while being held at gunpoint early Monday morning by thieves who posed as police in Paris, France. The robbers reportedly took $10 million worth of jewelry and a phone while leaving Kim shaken up about the incident. We talk about how oversharing on social media played into this horrific situation and how it can happen to anyone (minus the stealing of millions of dollars).

Solange Knowles released her fourth studio album A Seat at the Table last week and we cannot get enough! The soulful, melodic artistry is arguably one of our favorite music pieces of the year. We discuss a few of our favorite songs, as well as the political and personal themes the album conveys.

Last week we chatted about some of the things that keep us inspired when times can be particularly low. This week, we follow-up on that conversation with positive news, and how we handle rapid, but positive, changes after a storm.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 35: Taylor, Trump and Twenty-Five

Welcome back lovelies! Sunday night, Kim Kardashian posted a video of Kanye’s phone call with Taylor Swift about his record ‘Famous’ – a song Taylor’s team had labeled offensive and misogynistic upon its release a few months ago. The Snapchat video shows a cordial conversation between the two, with Taylor saying – “I really appreciate you telling me about it. That’s really nice,” she says. “It’s all very tongue-in-cheek either way.” We discuss Twitter’s reaction and our views on the #KimExposedTaylorParty.

The Republican National Convention began this week and so far, it is living up to its hype. Melania Trump’s speech at the RNC seems to have almost exact similarities to Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. We talk about what went wrong and how Mrs. Trump’s speech made it past the editor’s room.

Although the term ‘Millennials’ encapsulates a broad range of ages, our particular focus this week is on the mid-twenty-something’s. As Ashley’s birthday approaches and the first quarter-century of our lives drifts away, we chat about some of the ways to deal with becoming a real grown-up.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Episode 21: Slow it Down Pt.1

Hello #TMH listeners! This week we chat about the Twitter monster that is #KimYe, and the latest social media rant and controversial nude photo Kim Kardashian posted online. We share our take on how this potentially influences the current generation of young women – in a negative way.

Ambition can be both a gift and a curse – Millennials often get wrapped up in aggressievely pursuing their goals that we forget to slow down, de-stress, and breathe. We give key takeaways from our convo with Stefanie Seifer, Co-Founder of dirtyandthirty.com, who offered awesome advice for the creative busy body. Check out our exclusive interview with her on the blog tomorrow, as she chatted with us all the way from LA.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

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
