Twelve 20-somethings chronicle their lives for WBUR. Learn more.
We put that call out in July and were inundated by responses. We received story after story of unmet expectations, compromised dreams, overwhelming student loans, and moves back home. From the dozens of stories that came in, ten bloggers and two radio documentarians were chosen.
For the next eight weeks, the bloggers will be sharing their lives with you. Each week, they will tackle a new issue: underemployment, education, debt, expectation, relationships, psychology, generational gaps, and the future. In November, the radio documentarians will join in the conversation.
We hope that you will follow along on their journey. But, even more, we hope that you’ll join in the conversation. You can comment on their stories. They’ll be part of those discussions. You can share your own story. Does it line up? Or contradict? You can ask questions of the group or of one person in particular.
If you want to send us your story instead, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Generation Stuck is a project of the iLab, a new initiative at WBUR committed to innovation and experimentation in public radio. We are the producers of this series. Let us know what you think.
