Turn on the news these days and you’re bound to hear some kind of fretting about millennials and their views on the world. Usually – the conversation revolves around questions like “why are millennials so lazy?” or “why do they spend so much time on social media?” – and while questions like that are kind of trite – they have a point. Millennials ARE different from other generations. Very – different in fact – especially when it comes to politics. My guest for tonight’s Conversations with Great Minds has tried to find out why. Joining me now now is David Cahn. David is a journalist – an activist – a national leader of the Junior State of America – and an experienced campaign organizer. He also writes for the Huffington Post and along with his brother Jack – is the co-author of “When Millennials Rule: The Reshaping of America.”
