"Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it." ~ George Orwell
The fashion. The music. The selfies. The texting and tweeting.
If you're a middle-aged baby boomer, you've probably found yourself shaking your head on more than one occasion when trying to understand millenials. The glaring differences between the generations are often hard to ignore. Sometimes this fuels misunderstandings and misjudgments that tend to create a culture of cynism and distrust. But once you get past the differences, you'll find that there is plenty that each generation can learn from the other.
If you have a millenial in your life that you struggle to understand and relate to, you'll want to tune in today. We're chatting with Christin Taylor, a professor who has worked with millenials for 10 years, and author of the new book, Crew: Finding Community When Your Dreams Crash. Tune in as she teaches you what it takes to bridge the generational gap and reach out to the young adults in your life.

Every year, millions of working Americans spend part of the month of November selecting their employee benefits. It's a confusing experience for most of us. How do you choose what's right for you?
This show will focus on helping Millenial workers sift through their employee benefits options and put together a plan that makes sense for them.
Carol Harnett, president of the Council for Disability Awareness, and Jennifer Fitzgerald, co-founder and CEO of PolicyGenius, will talk through how Gen Y employees can make the most of their employee benefits choices -- in 15 minutes or less.
This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Union Building at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we continue our conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century.
It seems every religious group has its fundamentalists. So, are religious people particularly prone to fundamentalism? Or, is it just part of some people’s personality? And how about religion and politics? Is there a line between faith and political involvement? Can we honor both our religious values and our responsibilities as a member of a diverse nation, at the same time?
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. We’ll get into these difficult issues of fundamentalism and religion and politics from a faith perspective with the students. Their questions, and our conversation with them is the content of this program.

The Pew Research Center says: "By some key measures, Americans ages 18 to 29 are considerably less religious than older Americans. Fewer young adults belong to any particular faith community compared to older people today. Also they’re less likely to be religiously affiliated than their parents’ and grandparents’ were, when younger. Fully one fourth of the Millennial generation are unaffiliated with any particular faith group. And more young people say that religion 'isn’t very important in their lives' compared to the elder generation."
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. These young adults have some “significant” questions for us around the issues of inclusion regarding faith communities and religious authority.

We have an exclusive interview with We the Kids President, Judy Lane. We explore outreach to the Millenial generation. Such issues include: community, self reliance, liberty, personal responsibility, traditional family values, honesty, and hardworking. We shall hit each topic quickly and then listen to what the Millenials have to say.
I get accused of many things. My liberal friends think I am a right wing wacko hard core capitalist. My right-wing friends think I am a socialist Communist bleeding heart.
Others think I am a wishy-washy independent playing both sides.
If you really want to categorize me, then I guess you could call me a social liberal and a fiscal conservative. But that is way too broad.
I think of myself – without modesty -- as forward thinking. I see myself as thinking like a millennial with the experience of a baby boomer.
That’s why I see problems differently from most Americans. Too many of us think we are a Republican or Democrat. The problem is Democrats and Republicans are on the same side.
Both political parties -- and their elected officials -- are working together -- against you the American taxpayer. And they win every single time.
The best example is the Congressional committees on the IRS and Benghazi. I'm not saying that something isn’t wrong in what those investigations are trying to look into. But go back over the last two decades and look at all the other congressional investigations. The Democrats did the same thing when they were in power. Think of all the investigations of corruption by the GOP and the Bush administration that was alleged by Democrats.
Think of what the GOP did against Clinton with Whitewater and Vince Foster’s death – and Monica Lewinsky.
What was the purpose? Campaign tactics. And what's the end result. Taxpayer money spent and no real answers at all.
In fact, when you look at the campaign-finance laws, you realize they work hand-in-glove with these congressional investigations. They raise money for candidates and special interests.
And most of us in America fall into this game of either siding with the Democrats or the Republicans.
Children born in an era when three major outer planets formed what's called a stellium in astrology have grown up under the most unusual circumstances. Framed around a cluster of planets, all in close proximity, the millenials have grown up in a world far different than many of their baby-boom parents. A stellium is a close alignmeent of three or more planets in the same zodiacal proximity. In the case of these millenials, the three planets were Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune which were all located in the middle degrees of Capricorn, a place in the grand wheel that is being triggered by the current position of Pluto. This has presented this generation with a much different picture of daily reality than many a generation has had to face. Saturn represnts responsbility, Uranus harkens rebellion, and Neptune provides a shroud of fog that clouds the view dramatically. Disillusionment, harsh reality, and a dream that has yet to appear. This has become the cross this generation bears. Listen as I speak with one of the world's most respected astrologers on this topic. Donna Cunningham writes of this topic with an honest, empathetic eye and sheds insights on what will become of this generation. Listen and learn. Do you have a millenial under your roof?

The last thing on the minds of freelancers and entrepreneurs is making certain they planned for employee benefits for themselves and/or their employees. Building and maintaining a business is always top of mind. But, entrepreneurs and freelancers can protect themselves financially -- and provide themselves with benefits such as health, disability and life insurance as well as retirement and investment products -- more easily than they may realize.
Carol Harnett, president of the Council for Disabiilty Awareness, will talk through benefits, retirement and investment options with Jennifer Fitgerald, CEO and Co-Founder of Policy Genius and financial planner, Mary Beth Storjohann (a paid spokesperson for the CDA), of Workable Wealth.
