Episode 38: Love & Other Drugs

Happy hump-day! As the 2016 Olympics continue in Rio, we give our thoughts on the controversial – and offensive – news coverage that a few USA female champions have received, and the dire need for diversity in all newsrooms.

Social media has its pros and cons, and celebrities often face some of the harshest backlash for what they choose to share on their profiles. We chat about what stirred up Twitter’s #SelenaEndedJustinBieberParty, and how other Hollywood couples in the limelight sometimes choose to put a little too much on their Instagram and Snapchat.

The social media world also presents us Millennials with a constant Facebook feed of new engagements, baby announcements, weddings and other life-changing news. We share what personal relationship pressures we’ve faced and how the internet offers only a narrow view of others’ realities.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

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
