This podcast episode contains a discussion about active shooter/lockdown drills which may be triggering to some listeners. Discretion is advised. 

Episode two of the HBO Max Original series gives the American high school institutions of lockdown and the Gay Straight Alliance club the Generation treatment: chewing them up and spitting them out with moments of wry humor, poignancy and utter chaos. And we get a closer look at Arianna, the ride-or-die friend and party girl who uses her gay dads as an excuse for making homophobic jokes. In the second episode of Generation: The Podcast, hosts Gigi Goode & Whembley Sewell get the real take on cringe high school traditions from series creator Zelda Barnz and explore what animates Arianna’s antics with the actor who portrays her, Nathanya Alexander. Plus: more sapphic longing, Gen Z mental health awareness, and, of course, the big “dickscovery.”
