So Money - Episode 1387

Charlotte Cowles

New York Times contributor

Millennials are all grown up. Some are approaching 40 years of age and wondering, “Why am I not further along?” Guest Charlotte Cowles joins to share insights from her recent New York Times feature entitled, Why Millennials Are Facing More Anxiety Than Ever. In the piece, Charlotte profiles more than 30 millennials from around the United States about their finances. She writes, “Their anxieties were palpable, and painfully familiar — many of them felt behind, indebted, unable to live up to the expectations placed upon them. Even those who were doing well were vigilant.”

More about Charlotte: She is is a freelance writer for the New York Times and columnist for New York Magazine’s The Cut. She writes primarily about money, how we make financial decisions, and why it can be so stressful.
