Megan Angelo's Debut Book "Followers"

Feb 8, 2020

Hayim Herring joined us recently to talk about his latest book - Connecting Generations Bridging the Boomer, Gen X and Millennial Divide. 

Social isolation, loneliness, and suicide are conditions we associate with the elderly. But these issues have sharply increased across the younger generations. Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, Millennials and post-Millennials all report a declining number of friends and an increasing number of health issues associated with loneliness.

Many schools are adopting one-on-one technology initiatives.  There are pros and cons to this, and retired superintendent Craig Menozzi stopped by to tell us more. 

Aaron Brown has been a strong advocate for rural broadband.  Chuck?  Not quite as much.  Listen to this conversation and let us know what you think!
