The World According to Generation Z with Emily

How do young foxes see the world? Are they all unique snowflakes; lazy, over sensitive with an unrealistic sense of entitlement, or are they just like we were when we were their age?

Representing Generation Z in this episode of Old Fox Young Fox is Emily Woolwich-Steele in conversation with Ollie (a Generation X Fox) and Jeremy (a very old ‘Baby Boomer’ Fox) for a spirited intergenerational debate.

Topics include:

  • School in the noughties
  • Home ownership (or lack of it)
  • Life as a vLogger on YouTube
  • The Me too movement
  • Job hunting and attitudes to work
  • Remote working during covid-19

About our guest

Emily is a seasoned vlogger, hipster and is definitely woke. As far as we can work out she’s neither pescatarian nor pan-sexual, but is in favour of no platforming. So if you want to know what life is like for Generation Z, you don’t need to reach for a dictionary, just have a listen to this conversation about life through the eyes of a Gen Z’er.
