Episode 49: Publicity & Podcasting

Welcome back Millies! We hope our east coast listeners are staying warm on these brutally cold days, it’s very burr.

Kanye West is at it again with his attention seeking shenanigans – earlier this week the musician was seen at the Trump Tower in New York for a mysterious meeting with president-elect Donald Trump. We share our thoughts (and disappointment) in what some are calling a publicity stunt.

Diversity and representation in media is a topic near and dear to our hearts. After seeing the #SupportPOCPods hashtag on Twitter last week, we were inspired to discuss why it’s important now more than ever to have a diverse spectrum of storytellers in media, especially in podcasting.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Episode 42: Breakups, Blues & Future of News

Welcome back lovelies! It’s only halfway through the week and to tell you the truth, we’re already a bit emotionally exhausted. From Tulsa to Charlotte, the question of if #BlackLivesMatter is something we are all wondering. In an effort to take a moment to breathe and process all the heavy news, we offer some lighthearted topics this week.

Brangelina is over! Angelina Jolie-Pitt filed for divorce from Brad Pitt yesterday, citing irreconcilable differences after two years of marriage and 12 years of partnership. Countless humanitarian contributions, six children and several Hollywood projects are just some of the things the two accomplished together. We chat about their marriage, Jennifer Aniston (of course) and what Twitter had to say.

Steph spent the last week in Denver for the 2016 Online News Association Conference. One of the interesting things about this conference was the collaboration of start-ups and technology companies with news organizations. We discuss the meshing of tech and media, and share what it means for the future of journalism.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 24: Who Run The World?

Welcome back lovelies! This week we catch up the latest Photoshop debacle featuring one of our favorite Scandal stars – we discuss Adweek’s altered cover of Kerry Washington, and what these changes made by the magazine mean for societal beauty standards.

There was little-to-no coverage of a recent protest resulting in 400 arrests of those in support of Democracy Spring, the movement to bring awareness of political corruption. We delve into the potential influence campaigns and politics have over cable news networks in journalism.

What happens when Millennials run the workplace? A little good and a little bad is the result that a New York Times article highlights. We talk about what a Millennial-driven brand looks like, and how it could change the workforce.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash
