Episode 53: Catchin’ Up + CTRL

Welcome back – it’s been SO long! As we enter the middle of 2017, we connected to play catch-up with each other and with our wonderful #TMH listeners.

As Ashley continues her travel journey with Remote Year, she shares what the past couple of months have been like living in Argentina during the country’s winter season. Back in New York, Steph is getting ready for her first summer in the big city. Although we’ve been miles apart, recent months have brought sudden periods of growth and self-realizations for us both.

While on the topic of growth + evolvement, we give our first impressions of the new SZA album CTRL – TDE’s unapologetic sultry songstress delivers all the #carefreeblackgirl vibes on this long-awaited piece of work, and we are here for every bit of it.

Thanks for listening!

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 52: Rockstars & Revelations

Welcome back! This week we kick off with our ode to womanhood. We talk about why Malala Yousafzai, Yara Shahidi and Gretta Cohn are just three rockstars shining during this Women’s History Month.

NBC recently announced that Weekend Update, the Saturday Night Live segment featuring Micheal Che and Colin Jost, has been signed on to run as a prime-time show during this summer. We gush over the exciting news and map out our post-Bachelor plans.

Adults are having less sex than 20 years ago. As Millennials make up a significant portion of this age group, we chat about ways in which our generation could be contributing to the dip.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

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 10: I’d Rather Enjoy My Sandwich

Welcome back lovelies! This week, we dive in with Trump’s new campaign ad featuring President Barack Obama. Composed of clips from The President’s video on Buzzfeed and ISIS imagery, the ad sends some controversial messages to voters.

Last week we spent time with family, friends, Netflix and Hulu. We discuss binge watching some of our favorite aged millennials from Master of None and The Mindy Project.

Speaking of millennials, an article from The Atlantic outlined why this generation of minorities can’t get ahead. We decided to unpack some of the reasons why and outline what the future may hold.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash
