Mini-sode #6 Younger

Wait – before we get to the actual show topic this week – Meg finds a delightful surprise during an internet deep dive on Andrew Keegan (her adolescent crush.) Looks like he founded his own cult – WHAT?! No. Seriously. The internet WOULDN’T lie. More on that in an upcoming episode. This must be discussed.

On THIS week’s episode….

Age doesn’t have to define us, right? Meg’s approaching 40 and “working through” her aging process as she hits a new stage of life. Meg and Casey reflect on her newest television binge fest – Younger –  where the main characters work for a publishing company in NY. Age-related storylines showcase the differences between the Millennial and GenX age gap – which Meg loves of course since she’s right in between the two. Touching on ageism and imposter syndrome – Meg ties the show in with Millennials and how much we all struggle with anxiety.
