Monday, February 12, 2018
2:00 PM - 2:45 PM

With US children spending an average of 48 minutes a day on mobile devices, the definition of “family dynamics” has shifted to include more time spent by individuals immersed in their own screens.

Responding to a growing demand for kid-friendly podcasts over the last year, producers in this space are offering families a welcome alternative to screen time. Listen in as this group of award-winning podcast creators they talk business models, creative and production processes and benefits.
