Episode #9×33: Sorry Trumpers, You’re All Dead and Gen Z is Legal

  • Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real talk!
  • Laura “wins” a longstanding “game,” and Andrew toasts to the end of an era.
  • LendingTree and Credit Karma have conducted surveys of millennials and Gen Z’ers to look at reasons why our age groups may be incurring debt in the pursuit of love. 
  • Younger generations are more likely to accrue “dating debt” than older generations. We get personal and share how much we’ve spent on dating.
  • Even though it feels like we’re always spending, spending, spending, traditional shopping is dying. (Yet another thing to blame millennials for!)
  • Believe it or not, the majority of consumers (54%) prefer shopping in-store, as opposed to online. (We could never.)
  • If you think listening to podcasts helps combat loneliness, how do you think it helps podcast hosts? This show is our social lives!!
  • If you lean on podcasts for companionship, check out this article in the Washington Post about how people use podcasts to fill this gap. 
  • What is the relationship between arousal and focus? What content do we consume to help us focus?
  • This week’s recommendations will empower and entertain: SHOOT YOUR SHOT (Andrew), ‘Once More with Feeling’ by Elissa Sussman, and Baldur’s Gate 3 (Laura).

And in this week’s installment of After Dark:

  • Laura opens up about a crazy squatting situation her complex experienced last year. The reason police couldn’t do anything about it is WILD.
  • Andrew provides a neighbor update, and may or may not be doing surveillance droning to learn more.
