In this two part episode, we talk with two young people about the juxtaposition of the mental health crisis of young people -- and -- the pervasive role of social media in young people's lives. Sara Lund (age 18) and Ingrid Ahlefeldt-Laurvig (age 17) share their views and experiences with FOMO, self-image, being united with others, and parenting -- among many other things. If you are a young person you might find their insights heartening. If you are an older person or a parent of young people, it's an important listen. It shifted some of our views. It also gave us hope and excitement about the future. Something we all need!
