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

Episode 36: More About Millies

Welcome back! This week, we chat about the social media reaction to a video of Malia Obama dancing at this year’s Lollapalooza music festival over the weekend, and why everyone was a little too harsh on the nation’s First Daughter.

Wednesday marked the start of the joint 2016 NABJ/NAHJ Convention here in Washington, D.C, and everyone got word on Monday that Hillary Clinton will be in attendance on Friday. We share what we think the Democratic presidential nominee will have to say to a room full of journalists of color, as well as a few details about the exciting podcasting panel we get to be a part of.

Millies don’t want a Milli?!? A recent Wall Street Journal article says that Millennials don’t exactly see themselves becoming millionaires during their lifetime – we discuss our key takeaways from the article and how we are working on our own personal spending habits while living in D.C.

This is The Millennial Hour.

XOXO,

Steph & Ash
