The Plugged In Show, Episode 111: The Biggest Entertainment & Tech Stories of 2021

blog top 01-06 podcast 111


Another year has come and gone. And that can only mean one thing: It’s time to turn around and take one last look at the entertainment and technology stories that impacted our culture and our families over the previous 12 months. 

It’s always fun to talk about what we thought the biggest headlines were from the last year. And we found plenty of conversation fodder in 2021. What in the world is Meta anyway? Why is Friends having a reunion on HBO almost two decades after TV finale? Will screen time ever not be an issue? And why do we care so much what British royals (or former royals?) do?

Those stories and more take center stage in our Plugged In Show conversation this week.

But what about you? What were the biggest entertainment, tech and cultural stories last year from your point of view? You can let us know on Facebook and Instagram. (Or send us an email at [email protected], too.)
