Overnight America Podcast: August 16th, 2016 – Nicholas Kardaras, Rob Ross

We’ve all seen them: kids hypnotically staring at glowing screens in restaurants, in playgrounds and in friends’ houses―and the numbers are growing. Like a virtual scourge, the illuminated glowing faces―the Glow Kids―are multiplying. But at what cost? Is this just a harmless indulgence or fad like some sort of digital hula-hoop? Some say that glowing screens might even be good for kids―a form of interactive educational tool.  Dr. Nicholas Kardaras sat down with Jon to talk about how that electronic device might not be the best idea for you to let your kid use.

 

In my Day we didn’t have kids on their cell phones in class.  To be fair kids didn’t even have cell phones it was a beeper.  Wait, it wasn’t that either.  We were passing notes on folded sheets of paper and darn it if your teacher caught you and made you read it out loud.  So much changes so fast when we think of pop culture; do you remember the rap battles on the street corner?  How about when we all thought mixing pop rocks and soda would make your stomach explode.  Do you remember slouch socks with high heels?  I do and so does my friend Rob Ross from PopDose.com.  Which is why we look to him to help keep us on top of the latest trends in Pop Culture each week on the show.  This week Rob talks about new music, trends on tv, and more.
