Eye Opening

It's really eye opening to get a deeper prespective of our online lives. It's even better that it's entertaining as well. Really enjoying this podcast and I'm looking forward to more episodes. Also forever freed myself from Facebook after listening to the one about how addicted we are to our devices. Thank you!
