Insights Into Teens: Episode 93 “Year in Review”

After a few weeks of hiatus over the holiday’s we ease back into the swing of things with a little review of the holidays. We’ll discuss how we spent Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years and some of the fun activities we were able to do despite the lockdowns still being in place.

We’ll also talk a little about some of the work we did in the studio and some of the upgrades and changes we made. We get our geek on a bit talking about our new Dungeons and Dragons series that we’re doing offline and we’ll also talk about some of the fun new board games we played over the holiday break.

Finally we’ll take a look at the struggles we all had getting back into our regular routines after such a long break. Balancing our sleep schedules, ramping up efforts with school and work and just shaking off the general grogginess and cob webs of a long break.

We’ll end with a look ahead, our views on New Years Resolutions and both what we are looking forward to in the coming year and what we might have some concerns about in the near future. In all we’ve got a positive outlook for 2021 and we hope to get back into our regular swing of things and back on topic moving forward.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 92 “Holiday Special 2020”

This week’s episode is all about the holidays. First we’ll talk about holiday traditions that we do as a family and ones that we’ve done over the years. Then we’ll have some fun with a little holiday trivia and learn some things about the holidays we didn’t know before. And finally we’ll finish up with another fun segment of “Would you rather…Holiday Edition”. We figured we’d wrap up another great year of podcasting with some fun as we take a few weeks off for the holidays. We’ll be back broadcasting live again after the first of the year.

Have a safe and happy holiday to all our viewers, listeners and fans.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 46 “Santa Claus”

This week we take a break from our more serious topics to celebrate the holidays and explore the nature and origins of Santa Claus. From a 3rd century monk named Saint Nicholas to the familiar depiction given to us by Thomas Nast to the classic portrayal in Clement C. Moore’s poem all the way up to the familiar department store Santa’s kids line up to talk to every year we look at Santa through the years. We also compare Christmas traditions from around the world and look for similarities that link them all together. Ultimately we address the burning questions of “Is Santa Claus real” and “Do you believe in Santa Claus”. We close with a very special creative presentation from all of our hosts for this joyous holiday.

Thank you to all of our viewers over these past 46 episodes. We’ll be taking a brief hiatus and will be back after the new year with more great podcasts. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!
