Explore generational labels and their impact with this week’s host Bryan DeAngelis, head of the Washington, D.C. office, and guests Lauren Wolfson, a Penta Partner, and Daniel Cox, Director and Founder of the Survey Center on American Life and senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and Kelsey Eyre Hammond, research associate at the Survey Center on American Life. They delve into recent studies on the key differences between Generation Z and older generations, examining how major events and technology shape each generation’s perspective.
The group discusses the effects of the global pandemic on Gen Z’s social and educational journey, including personal struggles and weakened social ties. They also address the potential for tech proficiency and social connectivity of generations that have had less exposure to technology than Gen Z. The group also addresses the generational divides and social media’s role in responses to the Israel-Hamas conflict and analyzes the decline in institutional trust. Take a listen for a discussion on how these divisions reshape our culture and values.
