“Generation Nation”, “Sci-Tech Now Georgia” And Politics In The Morning

Earlier this week, you heard three familiar voices joining Morning Edition host Bradley George for insightful conversations about technology, politics and the gap between generations.

These discussions are now a regular part of the morning line-up.

On Mondays, GPB’s Bobbie Battista will examine issues, characteristics and trends that define the five generations of Americans intermingling with each other and the impact their integration is having on our society. This subject is the basis of her upcoming podcast “Generation Nation.”

On Tuesdays, GPB-TV’s "Sci-Tech Now Georgia" host Renay San Miguel will keep us connected to the latest tech lifestyle and business trends.

On Fridays, GPB’s Bill Nigut fills us in on the latest political news and issues.

You can hear these segments on 7:45 a.m.
