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 87 “Would You Rather”

We decided to change things up a bit for our Halloween episode and have some fun. We decorated the studio set, threw on our costumes and decided to play a game of “Would You Rather”.

In this episode we ask Madison a serious of questions on topics such as Technology, Pop Culture, Family, School, Food and Fantasy. We give Madison two choices and she needs to pick which one she would rather go with. It’s a fun and interesting little game of personality questions that we play at home from time to time. This time we’re asking the questions on the podcast and getting the answers on the fly.
