Especially with the Synod of Bishops focusing on young people, the faith, and vocational discernment, there is an increasing focus on what is going on in the lives of young people today, personally and culturally. If the church is asking about vocational discernment for our young people, we are really thinking about their freedom to hear and respond to God’s call to take on the responsibility and joy of discipleship.

Our show today is dedicated to trying to get a better sense of what is actually marking the lives of young people, what is their situation? What are their burdens? What are their possibilities? To help us think more deeply, we are talking with someone who examined the millennial generation, from a very broad, cultural perspective.

Malcolm Harris is a freelance writer and editor at The New Inquiry. His work has appeared in the New Republic, Book Forum, The Village Voice, and n+1 and the New York Times Magazine. He hails from Philadelphia. In his recently published book, ‘Kids These Days: Human capital and the making of millennials’, Harris examines a broad trend like runaway student debt, the rise of the intern, mass incarnations, social media, and more. He is here today to talk to us about his new book and what he is seeing in the millennial generation.
