Quarter-Life Crisis, the Podcast: 4/10/13 Episode 1

Get ready, I’m launching my very first podcast, aptly titled:


You can start listening to it today, right here (soon to be available on iTunes). I aim to have a new episode every Wednesday, so be sure to subscribe (RSS feed here). It is unscripted, unedited, and very honest, so bear with my growing pains as I try to exercise my voice and explore my own (and others’) experiences of becoming an “adult.” Enjoy.

It’s the very first episode! And it is every bit of awkward as you would expect. Brenda talks out of her ass about why she’s doing this podcast, why is the “quarter-life crisis” so fascinating, and 7 skills one must develop in their twenties. [Intro song: Dumbfoundead – “Born For This”]

    Interesting topic of conversation. As a historian in response to your historical query about “quarter life crisis” in past era’s or generations this is something that is not new to the Human experience. For example the generation of the First World War faced their won crisis in the loss of innocence in the trenches of the western front and searched for new meaning in existentialism and consumerism of the 1920s. The contexts of each generation do change. Like you pointed out, communications and social media in our time allow for different fields of human interactions that did not exist even twenty years ago. Nevertheless, some of the struggles of youth remain constant. unrequited love, Angst or the fear of responsibility, The death of dreams, the desire for success, fame and money. Dickens writes about all this in ‘Great Expectations’ the story of a young man coming of age over hundred years ago before cell phones or facebook.

    I should also note for the record that for most of Human history life expectancy was roughly 30 so for many people life was more or less a perpetual crisis.
