  1. I was pretty shocked (and honesty pretty angered) to hear the guest speaker talking down about social media (when she herself was actively benefiting from it), and say that it is “superficial” when some of the deepest, richest, most amazing conversations are being had on places like Instagram… I follow people whose posts have been so raw and beautiful that they have moved me on such a deep level…. I think her belittling of the platform was sad and untrue, and I know so many people who have found and made incredibly meaningful connections on places like Instagram, myself included. Just thought it was disrespectful to use blanket statements that it is superficial and discredit the artists and writers who are baring their souls there to move mountains within us all.

    1. Hi Faith, Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. I definitely agree with you that social media can be a place for deep connections and meaningful conversations and I have built some amazing friendships through social media. Everyone’s experience is different and for our guest, social media is not a place where she forms those connections like some other people (me and it sounds like you included). 🙂 I can’t speak for our guest but I will say that what she is said is just her opinion and you or any listener can take it or leave it. I’m happy to have our podcast be a place where our guests can freely share their thoughts and opinions as well as a place where our listeners can chime in with their own thoughts and opinions (even if they don’t match those of our guest). Thanks for listening and thank you so much for sharing your thoughts here. I really value your honesty and openness. 🙂

  2. I LOVED the part when she said “She left all social media”. I am one to go back to the roots of human interaction and personal interaction, so kudos to you Linsi! xoxo
