Generation game: miserable millennials and boomers in business

Eliza Filby of King's College, London sits down with Ollie Smith to talk intergenerational differences, mansplaining, and the plague of extended adolescence.

Generation game: miserable millennials and boomers in business

Young people these days. They are so lazy and entitled. Swanning around on their phones. They have no manners!

Well, that might all be true sometimes, but they are also drinking less, taking fewer drugs, having less sex and confronting their problems. They are a pragmatic, sceptical, entrepreneurial bunch, who are afraid of being shamed, and know what it is like to be told 'no' in the age of austerity.

In this podcast, intergenerational expert Eliza Filby sits down with Ollie Smith to tease out and explain the details behind the intergenerational divide. 

Hear how the baby boomers need to get up to speed on gender politics, how Generation X was the first to experience arrested development, and a fair degree of scepticism about whether millennials will ever change their behaviour.
