Audacy presents “It’s Generational,” an insightful exploration of how each generation looks at things differently. Hosted by Lauren Barry, episodes feature roundtable discussions and deep-dives into compelling questions that all generations care about.

For the roundtable discussions, panelists representing Gen Z, Millennials, Baby Boomers, and Gen X will weigh in with their takes. All guests have unique perspectives from an array of backgrounds and disciplines.

Language is ever-evolving. The first episode unpacked the word “trauma,” how different generations use language, and how words shape our understanding of the world. Future questions on this series will discuss: What can polyamory teach us about breaking bad relationship cycles? Why do different generations have such different perspectives about work?

The panel discussions kicked off with John Evans, a baby boomer and longtime journalist (recently retired from KCBS in San Francisco); Gen Xer, journalist, critic, author and podcast host Virginia Heffernan; millennial influencer, writer, and model Kendra Austin; and Gen Z influencer, activist, and model Michelle Chubb.

Brigitta Busch, researcher and lecturer at the University of Vienna’s department of linguistics, also participated in episode 1 to explain the history of the word “trauma.”

Future panels will include Dr. Raquel Peel, psychology lecturer University of Southern Queensland, and The Kaleidoscope Group’s executive consultant Joyce Trimuel.
