A slower news week means that Joshua Vergara and guest Thunder E talk at length about a topic close to home – and by that, they mean YouTube. A deep-dive by Bloomberg this past week has our podcast panel looking back on the platform we all know and love (and perhaps use too much) and what can be done to protect viewers from some of the potentially harmful content that finds its way in. The conversation moves toward the general topic of digital wellness and how much of our attention we willingly give to social media networks like Twitter and Instagram.

It’s an almost existential conversation on this edition of the Pocketnow Weekly!
