Episode 47: Protests & Pressure

Greetings Millies! We’re back on the mic’s this week after a quick break. Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock was named People Magazine’s 2016 Sexiest Man Alive – we chat briefly on what makes him “sexy” and an overall good role model.

Shifting gears, we get into the powerful student protests that have taken place over the past week since America’s new President-elect was chosen. While the youth often get a bad rap for being lazy, glued-to-an-iPhone narcissists, we share how their recent public action combats generational stereotypes at a time when unity is needed the most.

Take some freakin’ action people and fight for what you believe in! We express the importance of supporting organizations like Refugee Rights, and subscribing to a newspaper or donating to ProPublica to keep trustworthy journalism alive.

Has dating become hopeless? A Rolling Stone article published yesterday explores the awkward, in-between space many Millennials are currently in as we try to achieve personal intimacy in the age of social media and internet dating. We give our favorite takeaways from the piece and our hopes for the future of relationships.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash

Welcome back lovelies! This week, we catch up on our favorite fall TV. From Westworld, Atlanta and Insecure to New Girl and Shameless, we are obsessed with everything that’s on TV. Check out our thoughts on this seasons top picks.

Sometimes when something hurts, laughing through the pain can be the only comfort. This is the approach we are taking when it comes to this year’s election. Listen to the ways we ease our political distress until election day on November 8th.

Laughter is can be awkward, especially in the workplace. We chat about our experiences with workplace humor as Millennials, and why it’s important to think twice before dishing out that semi-offensive joke.

Episode 11: The Company You Keep

Happy hump-day loyal listeners! This past Monday, Kendrick Lamar was nominated for 11 different awards for the 58th annual Grammy’s – he leads with the most nominations, and is only one behind Michael Jackson’s record-setting 12 nominations in 1984. We chat about his reign over the past few years, and the different reactions this announcement received.

Trump is at it again – more racially offensive words were said this week from the 2016 presidential candidate we love to hate. We discuss what this means to different communities in the U.S. and the importance of voting.

Finally, we offer a little advice on how to manage friendships in adulthood as a millennial – keep your circle tight, folks.
