If you read any millennial’s blog, most of our activities and/or preoccupations fall in the realm of:
a) finding or keeping a well-paying job
b) spending quality time with friends/family
c) finding new movies/foods/books/music/shows to enjoy
d) finishing school or paying off student loan debt
e) becoming healthier (or at least, staying healthy-ish)
Ruining the department store industry and chain restaurants like Applebee’s and Buffalo Wild Wings, or even killing the housing market, is not on most (if any) millennials’ to-do list and yet…
During the later half of 2017, I researched a select few industries millennials are accused of killing or ruining, interviewed actual millennials and other individuals in different age groups affected by the shift in that particular industry, and, finally, along with a co-host, put together a podcast miniseries to answer the question of a) if this industry is actually dead and b) if it is dead, who killed it?
The podcast miniseries is titled, “Killing the Industry.” The trailer actually airs today (which you can listen to here or on the podcast’s blog), but the first episode premieres Friday, February 2nd. I hope you’ll give it a listen, especially if you’re dying to know if millennials are actually to blame for killing, well, everything.
What I’m Listening To: (See below)
What I’m Reading: Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham on audiobook; even though she’s technically not a comedian, I’m still lumping Graham into the category because she’s a funny person who doesn’t take herself too seriously, and so far the book does not disappoint.
What I’m Watching: Netflix’s remake of One Day At a Time is back! Out of all the original series Netflix pushes on its customers, I actually don’t mind this one because this beautiful, hilarious Cuban-American family still faces real issues affecting veterans with PTS, LGBT teens, non-traditional matriculation, Latinx culture, and so much more without being corny. So excited for season two!
