Back in the early days of talking vegetables, Bob the Tomato used to introduce pretty much every VeggieTales episode with, “Have we got a show for you!”
And boy, is that true of the latest episode of The Plugged In Show. We’ve stuffed so much in here that I’m getting dizzy just writing about it.
First up, we talk about Netflix’s charming animated film Vivo, the brainchild of Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and featuring perhaps the world’s most talented kinkajou.
Next up, we take a deep dive into our own Jonathan McKee’s latest book, Parenting Generation Screen: Guiding Your Kids to Be Wise in a Digital World. Jonathan gives us some excellent advice on how to do just that. (And even better news: We’ll give you Jonathan’s book for a gift of any amount. Just check the link down in the show notes for more details.)
And finally, we turn on an egg timer and rattle off what you need to know about in the culture, taking a quick dive into the issues that impact parents, Christians and entertainment consumers.
We hope you have fun listening. We sure did talking. Take a look at everything we talked about below.
