Behind the company that's taking on cyberbullies and creating "smart towns" in rural America

Connected Nation

Oct 16 2023 • 36 mins

On this episode of Connected Nation, we discuss what resources families can access to combat the harmful effects of social media on the mental health of America’s youth.

It’s a problem that’s grown so large and so serious that the US Surgeon General recently issued a call for urgent action to policymakers, technology companies, researchers, families, and others to protect teenagers and children online.

We’ll talk to two companies that are answering that call AND learn how they're working together to deliver access to critical technology in small towns.
