I keep seeing headlines like “Generation Hopeless: millennials who lack basic life and workplace skills.” Which I think is bullshit. Older generations usually poke shit at the younger ones. But maybe they know something we don’t?

So I thought an interesting podcast might be to sit down with my 18 year old identical twins – Hunter and Taylor. They are GenZ, the generation after Millennials, but it’s still relevant. Both just finished their first year of university, have held down part-time marketing jobs, and are entrepreneurial – by 18 they have started a couple of business ventures and written a couple of business plans. How does their generation see the world? That’s the purpose of this show. If you think it has legs, we might turn it into a separate series, or it might just turn up sporadically in this feed. Let me know what you think!

This first episode is about their view on social media – what it’s for, and how their generation tends to use it. Imagine you’re 18 and Instagram is a dating tool. And you have TWO Instagram accounts – one for the general public, and one for your close friends. Twitter is where you go to get your daily news. Facebook is what you let your religious grandparents see.

    I liked the new show. Very interesting to see different views from different generations. I’m 28 mainly use Facebook. I don’t post much, I do reply a bit, mostly use it to keep up with friends, news and general interest. I do use Facebook to private message a lot though. I occasionally jump on Twitter for news on things I have interest in, like computer games, never post. I watch a lot of YouTube, mostly computer games, history docos or denfence news. Never post.

    I thought I’d say what I do since I’m in the middle of your 2 generations.
