Parenting and Media with Jared Sylva

This week, parent, geek, and holder of strong opinions, Jared Sylva, joins us to talk about watching geek media with kids. How do you decide what media to watch with kids, and how do you talk to them about it? What geek media offers entertainment and lessons for kids and parents alike? And how can parents deal with the so-called ‘Princess Problem?’

Whether you have kids of your own or not, this conversation goes deep on the messages media sends us, and how we consume it and talk about it with others.

Jared Sylva is a life-long Star Wars fan and a professional geek as the Organized Play department manager for Star City Games, who loves sharing the movies and shows he loves with his two young children. You can reach out to Jared on Twitter @JaredSylva.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
