Welcome to Third Eye Weekly–a podcast dedicated to answering the big questions through intimate story telling. Tune in and listen to BTR hosts Zach Schepis and Lisa Autz as they weave spoken word, independent music, and unique stories that help bring our inner and external selves to full circle.
On today’s show we ask the big question: What is a millennial, and what is their role in society?
We speak to people on the streets along with three riveting individuals about their perspective into the role that a millennial plays in our society.
We talk to Steven Olikara, the president of the Millennial Action Project–an organization dedicated to encouraging millennial participation in politics.
We also talk with Juliette Campbell. She hosts a series of secret underground-speakeasy parties in New York City that are largely attended by those in their 20s and 30s, along with other age groups.
Lastly, we’ll talk with Robert Moore–a professor at Rollins College who has written a research paper “Generation Ku: Individualism in China’s millennial youth” to give us the “third eye” perspective on millennials in a global context.
Today’s spoken word segment features Michael Lee’s “Pass On”.
Also, feel free to check out our video interview with Steven Olikara!
