Two moms review the TV and movies made for their kids.
Ep101 100th Episode Celebration
Join us as we discuss how making 100 episodes of the podcast has changed how we approach screen time with our kids and in our grown up lives. To celebrate, we introduce a new segment - Lightning Round - in which we give bite-sized reviews of Hero Elementary, Finding Ohana, On Pointe, and Gabby’s Dollhouse.
Ep100 Santiago of the Seas
We review Nickelodeon’s newest swashbuckling adventure, Santiago of the Seas. How do we feel about idolizing pirates? Is it enough to call them good pirates, sit back, and admire their cool clothes and catchy slang? We chat with Niki Lopez, the show’s creator, about representation, creating bilingual content, and how to get grown ups interested in a preschool show.
In this episode, we are joined by graphic designer and host of the I’m a Muslim and That’s Okay podcast Shehla Faizi to discuss the latest Pixar blockbuster: Soul. Is the burden of representation too much for the plot to bear? Does the jazz music meet Deborah’s standards? And where could we shoehorn John Cho into the cast? In Screen Time in the News, we discuss our hopes and fears for Common Sense Media’s coming streaming platform: Sensical.
Ep98 Over the Moon
We’re joined by librarian extraordinaire, Katie Kiekhaefer, to discuss Netflix’s animated feature Over the Moon. We celebrate blended families and diversity, wonder whether John Cho would be a good dad, lament our lack of vocal range for sing-alongs, and wish for more Margaret Cho and Awkwafina in our lives. In Screen Time in the News, we discuss an Undefeated article about 2020’s strides for blackness in animation.
Ep97 Supermarket Sweep
We’re joined by registered dietitian and personal trainer Leslie Urbas to discuss ABC’s reboot of Supermarket Sweep. Deborah’s love for Leslie Jones propels her through supersized episodes, and Katie is highly confident in her skills as a potential competitor. We touch on the old truism that men can’t grocery shop and ponder the Criminal Minds Supermarket Sweep mash-up we never knew we always wanted. In Screen Time in the News, we discuss a New York Times article that asks whether YouTube kidfluencers are making our kids fat.
Ep96 Jingle Jangle
Can a stellar cast, joyful dancing, and beautiful design make up for the plot holes and excessive run time of Netflix’s Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey? In Screen Time In the News, we point out any bright spots in the more than 80 new holiday movies that premiered in 2020.
