Episode 10 – Life as a “Millennial”

This episode of the LTC podcast is all about millennials! There is often a negative stigma associated with the word “millennial” and we delve into how it has transformed from simply a word used to describe a generation of young people, into a label with several different stereotypes attached to it. We attempt to dissolve the stereotype of the self entitled, participation trophy seeking, lazy millennial, but also acknowledge reasons as to why some of these stereotypes do have some validity.  From technology to politics to social demographics, we explore a variety of topics in effort to paint a clear picture as to what life as a millennial is like in today’s world.
