||Clean#34 Pies Secos, Pies Mojados||“ Pies Secos, Pies Mojados” or “Wet Foot, Dry Foot.” In the U.S., it’s the nickname of a piece of legislation, but in Cuba, it’s been the key to a dream. To what lengths will Cubans go to make that dream a reality?||1/24/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

||Clean#1 Welcome To Millennial||#1 Welcome To Millennial by Megan Tan||1/16/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
In a world where loneliness is in excess and the pressure of life as a millennial is suffocating, Megan is here to let you know you're not alone.
Interesting, insightful, inspiring, and above all else comforting. A great listen to anyone who feels like they have lost their path.
Megan's Self Pity Party
Megan sets out to give depth to the stereotype of entitled Millennials; unfortunately even with that she is still just an entitled Millennial.
This podcast is mostly her whining about things everyone manages to deal with and go through. Her problems seemed more ad more petty the further I got in the episode list. I can't take it anymore. It's just all so petty. Her insights have the cadence of weight, but they are the superficial musings of someone still naiive and still unfamiliar with the real world. Her condescension of service jobs was distasteful.
All that said I give two stars because production quality is excellent.
If you're a millennial, listen!!
Amazing! As a 20-something, this is amazing. The struggle of this age is highlighted, and rarely does this age group get a sympathetic shoulder. As millennials continue to be regarded as lazy and entitled, we catch a glimpse of the real existential crisis that continues to plague our generation. Thank you! Makes me want to cry with relief!!
