I would’ve been interested to hear Jean talk about the “xennials,” that micro-generation of people born from around 1977-1983. I was born in 1980 and fit in tha category. Mix of Gen X and millennial. Analog childhood and teenage years but then digital from young adult and on.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xennials
