Eeeek! Listen with parents present!

I went to look for podcasts for my 9 year old and thought this one sounded great, I mean I love Ted Talks and this one is the Kids and Family version, so we added it to the list and off my son went to explore the world of podcasts... 10 minutes later he comes in and says “ummmmm mom, you’re gonna want to delete this one!” So I look at the first episode... “How porn changes the way teens think about sex” 😳 Trying not to make a big deal, I thanked him and deleted it from the list. My bad I guess for not checking out every detail... but wanted to warn somebody else who may be looking for podcasts for their young kiddos.

Not a podcast

Well, the thing is sometimes you need to see a picture because it’s a regular TEDTalk not like a podcast and that kinda defeats the purpose of a podcast.

but I still love TEDTalks ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
