When does someone truly become an adult? Is it when they graduate from high school? The first time they pay their own rent? Or maybe it's an emotional shift that happens after the death of a loved one? We discuss what it means to be an adult and how it's being redefined in the Bay Area, where CEOs wear hoodies and employees go to work on skateboards. We want to hear from you: When do you feel you became an adult ... or are you not there yet?

Guests:

Julie Beck, journalist, The Atlantic; wrote the article "When Are You Really An Adult?"

Betty Reid Soskin, park ranger, Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond, California; National Park Service

Michelle Tea, author and poet; author of "How To Grow Up: A Memoir"

Marcus Shelby, Jazz bassist, composer and teacher; member of the San Francisco Arts Commission
