The Plugged In Show, Episode 140: I Kissed Instagram Goodbye and Top Pro-Life Movies

blog top 07-28


Social media promises connection with the people we care about the most. But it can, at times, seem like an infinite black hole, something that we get sucked into and spend far more time engaging with than we ever really intended. I’m sure that most of us have probably had moments where we’ve thought, “Ugh, I should just delete _______,” whether that’s Facebook or Instagram, Twitter or TikTok or something else.

Well, our very own Emily Clark did just that. She deleted her Instagram account—a process that proved surprisingly difficult. In this episode of The Plugged In Show, we’ll talk with Emily about what motivated her to ditch Insta, why it was technologically a lot harder than she expected and what she’s discovered since.

In our second segment, Plugged In intern Marsella Evans tells us about some pro-life movies that might provide a natural opportunity to talk about the difficult subject of abortion and which powerfully remind us of the value of every life.

So take a listen, and then tell us what you think about this week’s discussion. Have you ever felt like deleting your social media accounts? You can share your thoughts and experiences on Plugged In’s Facebook and Instagram, or shoot us an email at [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you.
