Many adults in their 20s and 30s are feeling anxious and lost. They find themselves experiencing what is being called a “quarterlife crisis.”

After living through a multiyear pandemic, financial hardship and years of polarizing politics, this generation is struggling to gain independence. The setbacks have left many “quarterlifers” scrambling to jumpstart their lives.

MPR News host Angela Davis talks about how people in their 20s and 30s can get through this pivotal time in life, and what going through a quarterlife crisis can teach us about ourselves through this period of intense soul searching.
