Being a millennial isn’t easy – our climate is warming, our social lives are being mediated by technology and the internet, and politicians are out of sync with what we want. Contrary to the popular narrative about millennials being entitled snowflakes, we're faced with challenges that previous generations would never have imagined. In Heckin' Concerned, Amruta speaks with smart and sensitive people about topics that scare millennials, and how to find some hope amongst the endless smashed avocado.

I LOVE IT

I recently discovered this podcast after watching the episode of inconceivable featuring Amruta. Wow am I glad I did. I was looking for such a long time for a podcast like this - one that talks about the climate and other topics I am interested whilst being really entertaining and engaging. I love the host. She is so intelligent and witty. I have already learnt so much from listening to these episodes. I don’t know if you’re still making episodes but I reallly really hope you do! This is now one of my fave podcasts!!
