The Secret to
with Danny Pellegrino and Lola Tash
Social Media is a fickle friend. It helps us connect to friends and family, expand our professional networks, and express ourselves… but also comes with unrealistic body expectations, cyberbullying, and social anxiety. Does the good outweigh the bad? Robin sits down with podcast and social-media star Danny Pellegrino (of "Everything Iconic”) and viral Instagram sensation Lola Tash (of @MyTherapistSays) to discuss the good, the bad- and everything in between- of social media! Take a crash course in social media vocabulary (what the heck is a meme?), learn tips on best-practices, and listen to thoughtful conversations about parenting in the digital age. PLUS, listen to the three discuss celebrity social media accounts: which celebs are follow-worthy and which ones aren’t?!
Stay until the end for a game of “Would You Rather: Social Media” that will leave you in stitches!
