 This week 'Generation whY' will  are joined in studio by Fairfield poets Monserrat Iñiguez and Taylor Irezumi of Soapbox Speakeasy.

The Soapbox Speakeasy presents Fairfield poets a venue where they spit, flow and shock. Show takes place every Saturday after ArtWalk at the Urban Village Collective. The Soapbox Speakeasy is headlined by a different language artist each month- the headliner selects the theme, which sets the writing challenge, and the ensuing lineup is filled by poets who craft work to speak on the topic. The goal of the event is to inspire people to write- including audience members. It promotes a community of writers who gather to teach, write, share, rehearse, play and support each other, as well as develop material for performance and publishing. The Soapbox Speakeasy is presented by The Urban Village Collective, a space for craftspeople, artisans, and independent business owners to create and developtheir products in a friendly cooperative setting. 

The concerns confronting the millennial generation affect more than just a select few- the entire nation is deeply impacted by the tribulations of Generation Y as they come of age. Join Andrew as he discusses a wide range of topics that include; student loan debt, internships, social media, and more. His guests will include OURTIME.org co-founder Matt Segal, The host of the David Pakman show David Pakman, and more.
