Description:

Everyone has gone through, will go through, or is currently going through their 20s. It’s the first gateway into the “real world,” when you’re forced to start making decisions that could carve out your life. Millennial is a podcast that documents what people never teach you – how to maneuver your 20s. Host and producer Megan Tan will document what it’s like to be a present-day millennial in real time. You don’t know what’s going to happen and she doesn’t know what’s going to happen – but being uncomfortable, taking risks, and enduring excitement and anxiety are all a part of the process…right? Millennial is a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX, a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven shows. Learn more at radiotopia.fm
