IGA033: Inter-Generational Learning – Finding Teachers in Strange Places

Summary:

This episode delves into the concepts of Inter-Generational Learning (IGL). Inter-Generational Learning (IGL) is the oldest form of learning dating back to when the old taught the young how to create pictures on cave walls. Lee has recently had two intense experiences showing the immense value of IGL for both young and old. The telling of these experiences provides an educational and entertaining view of how Lee is “mixing it up” with the younger generations and what he (and they) are learning from the interactions. He starts off with his recent trip to Lake Placid, NY, where he meets up with an entirely different culture. The episode finishes with his considerations and ultimate signing up to be a member of a new gym where “kids” are training parkour skills. This episode will have you chuckling a bit, but more importantly, Lee hopes to inspire your own inter-generational experiences.

IGA021- Millennials vs. Boomers – Bridging The Generation Gap

Summary:

Social scientists try to specify the defining characteristics of each of the generations. But there isn’t a lot of information on how Millennials view aging and older people. If today’s guest is any indication, there is a lot to be hopeful for. Brett Roger Gebbie, a 32 year old millennial, is the host of a podcast titled “Inspect Your Elders”, where he chats with those having many more years of experience than he to find out the thoughts and events that have shaped their lives.
After listening to several of his episodes, Lee invites Brett to discuss his motivations and purpose for doing his podcast and uncovers a thinking that seems rather unique among millennials. Or perhaps we have misjudged what millennials are all about? Adjusting our view of millennials and their opinions will most certainly affect our relationships in the world. You be the judge as to whether Brett’s thinking is unique or typical of his generation.
