Email a Friend

Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994 – a major event for many members of Generation X. Former MTV correspondent, NPR host and author Alison Stewart and Emily Bazelon, New York Times Magazine correspondent and panelist on Slate’s “Political Gabfest,” talk about the lingering impact of Generation X. Plus: the Pew Research Center’s Paul Taylor explains both how generations differ, and how being part of a generation shapes the values of its members; how the so-called Gen X slackers handled work; and a look (and a listen) to some of the amazing music of ’94.
