Episode 2: Gen X and the 2016 Election Fallout

November 16, 2016
In the wake of one of the most contentious elections in recent memory, what's the role of Generation X when it comes to our current political and cultural climate? Are we contributing to the growing division between political and social factions (either through action or inaction), or can we be the bridge that crosses the divide?
 
Derek, Dan, and Anthony tackle the big questions in the aftermath of the Trump presidential victory. Is there a path forward to a reunified nation, or will the country continue to fracture? And what can Gen X do about it?
 
Here's the Forbes article Anthony references during the show, which doesn't mention Generation X at all when referencing voters in the 2016 election (once again, we're treated as a "lost" generation).

Episode 1: Generation X - Lost or Found?

November 3, 2016

The first episode of Gen X Men introduces our overarching question: what is the legacy of Generation X, or will we even have one at all? Defined by traits like disrespect for authority, stubbornness, and skepticism, are we the slackers many believe us to be? Is there more to us than grunge and flannel?

Hosts Derek, Anthony, and Dan launch a long-overdue conversation about the place of Generation X in history. It's time Gen X learned to use its voice and find its place between the Boomers and the Millennials.

Is Gen X destined to be a lost generation, or will we find our purpose at last?

Make sure you listen and get into the conversation! We welcome your thoughts, feedback, opinions, death threats, etc.
