Episode #8×32: Corn Kid’s Set For College, The White House Wins the Internet, Quiet Quitting

  • Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and CORN talk!
  • Corn kid is precious and must be protected at all costs.
  • We’re pleasantly surprised by how much the Biden-Harris student debt relief plan includes, and how many people are seeing significant or complete loan cancellation. Also, we have GREAT news about interest!
  • Listeners sound off about what they’ll be able to do when their student debt is canceled, and we celebrate the newly unveiled IDR plan effectively canceling interest.
  • PSA: You’ll still need to apply for the debt relief by 12/31. Don’t worry, we’ll issue lots of reminders!
  • The White House Twitter account sees a sudden tone shift, endearing the account to tens of thousands of users.
  • As midterms loom, so too does “Dark Brandon.”
  • What is Quiet Quitting? How do we establish a balance between work life and LIFE?
  • This new trend can refer to scaling back to the bare minimum work required, not centering our lives around work, or letting go of doing additional work without additional pay.
  • It’s an entertainment themed recommendation week for #Millennial! Check out ‘The Princess’ on HBO Max (Andrew), season 2 of ‘Only Murders in the Building’ (Laura), and the *Nterviews series on the Lance Bass Show podcast (Pam).
