Millennials are Ruining the World? an Xennial perspective is a new podcast featuring real conversations bridging the X/Y generation gap. Its catchphrase is: “I’m not woke, but I’m awake!”
Join award-winning author and cabaret star Seth Bisen-Hersh as he humorously discusses the generational divide with his friends through authentic conversations bridging the gap between Generations X & Y. The podcast will cover a variety of topics from life advice (finding happiness, dealing with anxiety) to show biz career advice (insouciance, being a multi-hyphenate) to technological and social changes between generations X, Y & Z and what it means for society. It will also include more whimsical discussions about the differences between Japan and America and also the state of Science Fiction/Fantasy TV. Finally, there will be a political episode dedicated to analyzing the June Democratic primary debates and choosing the Xennial candidate for President!!
What is an Xennial you might ask? Xennials are the micro-generation between Generation X and Millennials, born approximately 1976-1984, which gives them a unique point of view that bridges the gap between generations because they both remember what cassette tapes and rotary phones are, while still being able to use their iPhones without a tutorial.
