About this Magazine

Youth, Now

Radical tech and extreme anti-aging. Breathtaking challenges and bold visions for the future. The September issue of Medium magazine — Youth, Now — explores the world being inherited, informed, and altered by the next generations. All month long, we will be publishing stories that illuminate our obsession with youth—telling the stories of kids who may not be all right, but remain the best hope we have. Cover art by Ben Voldman, Blake Suarez, Sofia Hydman & Victoria Lu
