Gen Z Tea

Podcast
  • Hosted by Jane Marolt & Mariel Gorsuch

Gen Z Tea is a new podcast produced during the summer of 2019 – by teens, for teens – from Aspen Public Radio. In each episode, we share the voices of our generation through exploring why we are so attached to technology, and how social media is shaping the way we think, act and relate to one another. 

We are always connected, but at the same time, we are more isolated than ever. 

Hosted by Aspen locals Jane Marolt and Mariel Gorsuch. Produced by Eleanor Bennett.

"To Vote or Not to Vote"

Older generations expect Generation Z to sway the 2020 election, but young people seem to turn their backs on politics. With election coverage more accessible than ever before, why aren’t we more involved? Are we pessimistic? Misinformed? Jaded? Or do we just not care?

In our final story of the season, we talk to Gen Zer, Leslie Hernandez, who is bucking the trend by diving into her community’s complicated political scene. Then, in a special interview taped live from the campaign trail in the summer of 2019, former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper discusses strategies politicians on all sides are using to engage with Generation Z. Don’t miss the hot political tea!

   "Not So Social Media"

 Studies say Generation Z has become more depressed and anxious than any generation before them. The cause? Experts worry it might be our reliance on social media as our main form of communication.  We take a digital detox to see if removing technology from the center of our social lives could make us feel differently. Then we talk with Hannah and Charlie Lucas, the Gen Z founders of notOK, a social media app designed to save lives.

"Under the Influence(r)"

For many Gen Zers, watching YouTube and following influencers on Instagram consumes hours of their day. In turn, many young people have turned to social media “influencing” as a profession. To find out more, we catch up with two Aspen High School alumni who are working towards careers as YouTube and Instagram stars.

Special guests Noelle Woods and Jack Sweeney help us uncover the truth about this fascinating new career path for Generation Z.
