Highline’s Michael Hobbes joins Jordan to discuss the precarious position of millennials and what they can do to fix it.
“Generation Screwed” author Michael Hobbes hops on the Beane 2018 Podcast for a wide-ranging conversation about how our millennial generation is so far behind their parents – from health care and housing to politics and policy. A terrific writer (check him out on twitter at @rottenindemark), Michael and Jordan discuss what made him write this deep dive into the obstacles facing millennials (3:29), the lack of actual differences between generations at the same age (4:46) and what the biggest surprise he found in his research was (7:02). Later the two discuss the domination of conservative political language in our culture (9:31), the inequality within the millennial generation (13:55), activation 18 to 35’s politically (19:12) and any positives Michael found in the course of writing this piece (22:08). All in all, just like the last podcast with Sean McElwee, the conversation makes clear that it’s time a new generation demands a seat at the table.
