Millennials are a special bunch of individuals. We are resilient, innovative, motivated and strong-willed. However, we live in a world where we can be underestimated by the older generation because we don’t fit the “traditional” work, professional or social lifestyle. That can make us feel lonely because we feel that there is no one out there that understands us.
Podcasts really fill that gap of understandability which most millennials are searching for. It is nice to find your kindred spirit whether they be in or a bit outside of your age range. Since graduating college, I have felt a bit lonely and in a space where no one really understands what I am going through. When I listen to podcasts it gives me hope for the future and puts my mind at ease of all the fear and anxiety that comes with adulthood.
Here are eight podcasts that are aimed towards millennials that will give you a good laugh, advice and a bit of reassurance about life ahead.
