Not quite a millennial

Xennial Cast

Hi, I’m Luciana Couto, a journalist born in 1982. Technically, I’m a millennial but sometimes, I don’t feel like one.


As someone born in the beginning of the 80’s I think I was not raised following some – let’s say – millennial standards. It’s like being raised to be a boomer and suddenly realizing you were not quite prepared for this new world.


Technology has changed a lot and with that some of society’s behaviours and even values. I still remember my  first CD and young people nowadays don’t even know what I’m talking about.


If you sometimes feel the same way, or if you’re curious about how we early millennials navigate this new reality, I invite you to join the discussion on my podcast, Xennial Cast. On each episode I research and try to understand new concepts brought by the real millennials.
