As a graduated, working, twenty something, I try to actively inform myself of what is going on in the outside world.
I may not sit down and read the paper every morning or watch the news but thankfully there is an app for that (insert eye roll from my parents)! But hey, at least I am trying!
During my morning muni commute I listen to Nightly News with Brian Williams via audio podcast. It's free, under 30 minutes and the perfect overview of both national and world events.
For a lighter take, I read the skimm while waiting for coffee. This email subscription (written by two producers for NBC News) is a daily newsletter that focuses on headlines for the educated professional who knows enough to know she needs more.
While on the go, I love the CNN app. The alerts keep me informed of breaking news throughout the day!
And someday I might splurge on a subscription to the paper (once I finally get a morning routine that would allow for more than 5 minutes before I dash out the door)!
