    ..To "Sharent" Less On Social And Why....with Dr Veronica Barassi

    We all want the best for our children and we all want to protect them from the worst but we could all be inadvertently handing them a bomb when we share too much, or anything, about them online.
    Anthropologist Dr Veronica Barassi explains that the more data we are producing about children, the more we are creating them as datafied citizens and stripping them of the right to self-define in the future.

    She explores social media, education (like google classroom), health and home data.

Thought provoking

I’m really enjoying this podcast, the topics are interesting and current without being too intense. The conversation flows well and the length works well for morning tube commutes. I have shared several episodes with my friends already!
