Episode 37: Hurdles & Hashtags

Welcome back lovelies! We begin this week with a quick recap of the #NABJNAHJ16 convention. After participating in the panel ‘So You Think You Can Podcast’ on Friday, we came back feeling refreshed and inspired! We chat about going to a convention full of talented journalists of color, and how important it is to never give up on your vision.

The 2016 Olympics have begun and our Facebook feeds are full of some of the most compelling sports testimonials. From Simone Biles to Ibtihaj Muhammad, we are captivated by everything that is happening in Rio right now. Check out our favorite Olympians so far and how U.S. athletes are making history.

Millennials all over the world are struggling, but are they the same struggles we face in the U.S? We discuss the different ways Millennials around the world are living and how social media has impacted awareness for the worldwide struggle-bus.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 36: More About Millies

Welcome back! This week, we chat about the social media reaction to a video of Malia Obama dancing at this year’s Lollapalooza music festival over the weekend, and why everyone was a little too harsh on the nation’s First Daughter.

Wednesday marked the start of the joint 2016 NABJ/NAHJ Convention here in Washington, D.C, and everyone got word on Monday that Hillary Clinton will be in attendance on Friday. We share what we think the Democratic presidential nominee will have to say to a room full of journalists of color, as well as a few details about the exciting podcasting panel we get to be a part of.

Millies don’t want a Milli?!? A recent Wall Street Journal article says that Millennials don’t exactly see themselves becoming millionaires during their lifetime – we discuss our key takeaways from the article and how we are working on our own personal spending habits while living in D.C.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,
