Gen V was launched to give young adults a platform to speak their thoughts on technological developments and their impact on our culture. Particularly, these developments have the biggest impact on the new generation. With the broad theme of “Technology and Culture,” students can feel free to deeply explore topics of interest and share their opinions.
We hope that the Gen V podcast not only allows students to explore their interests, but also builds a generation of outspoken leaders and change-makers.
