Do you feel like your life is an endless to-do list?

Do you find yourself mindlessly scrolling through Instagram because you’re too exhausted to pick up a book? Are you mired in debt, or feel like you work all the time, or feel pressure to take whatever gives you joy and turn it into a monetizable hustle? Welcome to burnout culture.

Anne Helen Petersen’s 2019 BuzzFeed article on burnout has amassed over seven million reads and became the genesis for her new book, Can’t Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation. Joining her to discuss parenting burnout are writers Tamara Mose (The Playdate), Darcy Lockman (All the Rage: Mothers, Fathers and the Myth of Equal Partnership), LaTonya Yvette (Woman of Color), and Venessa Wong (the recent BuzzFeed essay Working Parenthood Is A Terrible Deal Right Now).

Anne Helen Petersen’s new book, Can’t Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation, is available for purchase.
