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!
