'Xennials' The New Generation?

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:33 pm on 14 July 2017

A new term for describing people in their early 40s has become a worldwide phenomenon. The media is reporting that babies born between 1977 and 1983 no longer have to be confused if they're Generation X or a Millennial, they can call themselves Xennials. The term was allegedly coined by Australian Associate Professor of Sociology, Dan Woodman. But contrary to reports, Dan isn't so sure about the label himself. He's with us from the University of Melbourne.
