Episode 51: Moonlight

Hey, Millies! A few thousand miles and technical difficulties couldn’t hold us back too long – this week we are happily reunited with each other and with you lovely listeners – welcome back. ūüôā

The¬†89th Academy Awards were held this past Sunday and our favorite Oscar wins included¬†Viola Davis taking home Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Fences¬†and Moonlight¬†taking home Best Picture. We chat about the awkward¬†award announcement mix up and discuss if this years’ wins showed improvement from the 2016 #OscarsSoWhite backlash on Hollywood.

Over the weekend Steph attended a live podcast taping in NYC for the hip-hop and pop culture podcast, The Read – a question from the audience sparked a controversial discussion on societal gender roles in the current dating scene for Millennials. We share our personal thoughts on the topic, as well as the importance of open-mindedness and inclusion at a time when gender issues are on the front lines.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 20: Power & Perceptions

Happy March lovelies! This week, we discuss¬†Chris Rock’s opening monologue and¬†our reactions to the conversation about¬†race during The Academy Awards.

The New York Times recently published¬†an interactive article showing The Faces of American Power. It¬†unsurprisingly shows a vast number of underrepresentation for both minorities and women in American culture’s most influential¬†people.

Alas, yet another study has found a new way of calling Millennials lazy. See what The New York Times Food section had to say about this generations eating habits and how it could be a tie to a perceived lack of work ethic.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Episode 16: Jada, Jobs and Jonas

Welcome back! We kickstart this week by asking why the #OscarsSoWhite ? Jada Pinkett Smith began the conversation by announcing she will not attend an awards ceremony that is not representative of diverse talent. Since her Facebook video post, people have been discussing on social media what it will take for people of ALL cultures to be nominated and featured in the Oscars ceremony.

According to a recent study by Deloitte, many millennials do not envision themselves staying in their current job past the year 2020. Is the lack of company-loyal millennials a positive or negative thing?

#Jonas2016 had all of Washington, D.C. shut down. From Lifetime biopics to new TVLand shows, we share how we spent our bingeworthy snowcation.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,
