Popaganda Episode: How to Talk to Kids About Pop Culture

feminist podcast

As kids, we learn about the world through pop culture—for better or worse. On this week’s episode of Popaganda, we have three discussions about kids and pop culture. First, Tomas Moniz, the founder of Rad Dad magazine, talks to us about how his ideas around media consumption have changed as his three kids have grown up. After that, writer Allyson McCabe explains how her two-mom family sticks out in suburban schools where all the kids aspire to be Frozen characters. We wrap up the show with Cristen and Caroline of the irreverent podcast Stuff Mom Never Told You, who were raised with very different parenting styles.

Also, on the show: voicemails from listeners who called in to tell us their ideas for talking to kids about pop culture. Listen in!

Loved the most recent podcast

Thanks so much for what you guys are doing in Portland! One of the big themes that hit me was the theme of children, education and how they learn. Not sure if you are aware of Saturday Academy - we are a local non-profit offering classes and camps for students grades 2-12. Our entire philosophy is about helping students to follow their curiosity through hands-on experiences. It's nice to hear that there are others in our community that feel the same way! Thanks again.
