fear, panic, scary
Due to the "Momo Challenge": the latest in a series of internet "challenges" and urban legends, Chris, Jess, JC, and Mandy talk about fear mongering and inducing panic: What do we do as parents to protect our kids? Do we, as technologists, have an advantage in understanding "hoaxes" better than non-technologists? Should we ignore the hype and "let live and let go?" And how much do we/should we be monitoring our kids?
