The Plugged In Show, Episode 156: Entertainment Conversation Starters & A Chat With Gloria Gaynor


One of the words we use a lot at Plugged In is conversation. We want you not only to make good decisions ahead of time when it comes to appropriate entertainment, but to talk about the ideas, themes and values you encounter in a given TV show, movie or other expressions of pop culture. But how do we do that effectively as parents? This week, we’ll talk about some ways to start natural conversations about entertainment and talk about the issues your family encounters there.

And in our second segment, I talk with disco legend Gloria Gaynor, most famous for her 1978 “I Will Survive.” But we’ll go deeper than just revisiting those bell-bottom glory days. Turns out Gloria’s in a new Christian movie, and she shared some of the story about her journey to faith as well.

So take a listen, and then tell us what you think about this week’s discussion. What kinds of questions does your family discuss after a movie? What did you think of Gloria’s story? You can share your thoughts on Plugged In’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, or shoot us an email at [email protected].  

You can also contact Focus on the Family by phone at 800-A-FAMILY (800-262-3459) if there any family-oriented questions or issues you’d like to talk about. We’d love to hear from you. And be sure to check out the links below related to our conversation this week!
