Wake Up To Politics Podcast: Generation Pandemic

Wake Up To Politics Podcast: Generation Pandemic

Millennials are facing the second economic crisis of their time in the workforce. Members of Generation Z, like me, are graduating high school in the midst of the deadliest pandemic in the nation's history — after having been born around the time of the deadliest terrorist attack, 9/11.

The coronavirus pandemic is impacting young Americans in unique ways, the most recent in a trail of turbulent events that have shaped our lives and political identities. The latest episode of Wake Up To Politics is in podcast feeds now — and it includes the voices of a range of young listeners, sharing their experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Plus, the episode features an interview with TIME national correspondent Charlotte Alter, the author of a book on millennials in politics. Alter analyzes the political lives of millennials and Generation Z, how they've lost trust in government through a series of "great disillusionments," and how the coronavirus will accelerate their calls for political change.

You can listen now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, or Stitcher! I am confident that Wake Up To Politics readers of all ages will have much to learn from the episode, so I hope you'll take a listen — and then subscribe to the show, share it, and leave a review! Your support means so much to me.
