ⓘ Millennial (podcast)

Millennial is an independently produced podcast created by Megan Tan that focuses on the transition between university and work, "how to maneuver your twenties". It explores the subject of finding meaningful and fulfilling work with the pressures of money, status, and self-worth. The podcast is autobiographical and includes interviews with people in Tans life including family members, coworkers, and friends. The series began in 2015 when Tan left college and was unemployed living in her childhood home.

In 2016, Millennial joined Radiotopia, becoming the 14th show in the network. In August 2017, the show aired its final episode. Tan explained her decision to end the podcast, saying it was turning into something different from what she envisioned at the start.
