CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #61 Tiffanie Darke (Gen X vs Millennials)

Tiffanie Darke is someone I’ve admired for years. She was the editor of Sunday Times Style for 12 years, then the creative content director at News UK.

She has a new book that has just come out called “This is 40: whatever happened to Generation X“, where she has interviewed some of the most iconic Gen X’ers such as Pearl Lowe, Richard Reed and Blur’s bassist Alex James to look at how Gen X live their life in between being young and old.

She’s also written two novels – her first novel, MARROW, was shortlisted for the WH Smith Fresh Talent award. In this episode we talk about the myth of “having it all”, burn-out, the differences between Gen X and Millennials and how to go after the life you want.
