Laurie and Jesse invite filmmaker and PhD Deb Wainwright to the conversation about the risks and benefits of children being posted and published online. Deb is developing a film, which studies the long terms effects of children living a broadcast life. She has a master’s degree in Human Learning and Development, plus she holds a PhD in Communications, so let’s just say she’s studied this … a lot! The conversation is primarily about the risks and benefits of parents posting and publishing their children online. But it’s also a conversation about parenting the child who wants to post or publish themselves online. We dive into everything from childhood consent, to viral fame in the digital age, to family vloggers and parent producers hoping for their child to be the next viral sensation. If you post your kid’s picture, if you share videos of your child or if your child has aspirations to be the next big YouTuber, then this podcast is for you.
