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 50: Golden Globes & No Place Like Roam

Hey Millies! It’s been a while – after the holidays and Ashley beginning a whole new life abroad, we are back!

Like most TV & movie fans, we tuned into the 2017 Golden Globe Awards this past Sunday night. We chat about our favorite moments from the show, which include creative mastermind Donald Glover snagging his first two Golden Globes for the FX series Atlanta (you go boy!), Tracee Ellis Ross receiving a well-deserved award for Blackish, as well as Meryl Streep’s powerful and timely speech.

It’s a new year! We share our number one resolutions and goals for 2017, which include the talented author Zadie Smith, and packing up your life to travel the world in 365 days.

Thanks for listening!

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

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 31: Ruling & Roaming

Happy hump-day #TMH listeners! Yesterday was #NationalSelfieDay – a whole day dedicated to celebrating the art of the ‘selfie’ photo across social media. We give our thoughts on why this is a little ridiculous, and what selfies mean in our generation.

On Sunday, Lebron James finally brought the NBA Championship victory home to Cleveland! As an Ohio native, Steph shares her excitement, and what this big win means to the Cavs who finally broke their 52-year drought.

Millennials are obsessed with travel. We chat about what our generation ultimately seeks to fulfill by roaming the globe, and Steph gives her favorite moments from her recent 2-week trip to Croatia, Budapest and more (check out her photos below!).

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Episode 14: Ready Or Not

Happy New Year lovelies! We kickstarted 2016 with some fashion news – Jaden Smith is adding one more title to his resume, ‘Womenswear model’. As the new face of Louis Vuitton, we discuss what this means for the future of gender-based clothing.

Men are sometimes taught to stifle their emotions, but our President proved yesterday that it’s okay to shed some tears. We discuss the Twitter conversation that ignited after Obama’s reaction on gun violence toward children and the stereotypes on public displays of emotion.

New Year, new Millennial Hour. We chat about some of our New Years ventures and what’s to soon come for the podcast.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph and Ash

On Tuesday the world found out that the officers involved in the Sandra Bland case will not face any criminal charges – we discuss what this means in the midst of the #BlackLivesMatters movement.
