"The Kids Are Alright” features Jesse Miller, an expert educator of social media, digital citizenship and mobile technology to both children and adults. Through candid conversation with podcast producer and parent Laurie Case they help break down some of the most perplexing issues facing anyone trying to guide their youngster through the complex world of new media and technology. They talk to experts, they break down current issues, they answer questions and they riff about their own experiences and concerns with their kids around technology and social media. Jesse is a smart guy and Laurie is a perplexed parent - so together they make a terrific duo.
Laurie and Jesse have an in depth conversation with Sgt Lindsey Houghton of the “Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) of British Columbia” and discuss what his agency does to suppress crime in our communities – but they also discuss how crime uses technology to get to our kids. It’s a scary conversation about the drug trade, the sex trade and gang life…and how possible it is for our kids to be influenced by that life.
