Episode 32: Freedom, Freedom, Where Are You?

Welcome back! This past Sunday night, actor and activist Jesse Williams delivered a powerful speech at the 2016 BET Awards as he received the Humanitarian Award. We share our favorite quotes from this pivotal “woke” moment, as he reminded us that #BlackLivesMatter goes far beyond a hashtag.

Last week, the United Kingdom made one of the most historic political votes we’ve seen in decades – to leave the European Union. We discuss how the shocking #Brexit decision will negatively impact the future of U.K. Millennials.

As the Brexit vote showed us just how much power a vote holds, we emphasize the importance of voting and activism among the Millennial population here in the U.S. – our voice matters now more than ever. Share your thoughts and comments below!

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

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.

Thanks for listening, and we’d love to hear your comments below!

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash
