Show Notes

The Squeezers discuss the highly anticipated documentary called “The Social Dilemma.” In a fun, lively, and sometimes controversial discussion, Cris and Dianne comment on both the benefits and drawbacks of social media.

The ideas of the “digital pacifier” and “snapchat dysmorphia” are covered as the discussion takes the listener on a journey of self-reflection. Decide for yourself how “likes” may influence your thoughts on your own value and self-worth. This episode is all about how to manage tech usage in your life so it feels enriching instead of depleting.

Laugh along with Cris and Dianne as they share their own personal anecdotes. This episode may be one that you agree with, disagree with, or makes you question your own social media approach. Either way you don’t want to miss this lively discussion about the human impact of social networking.
