The Station Wagon Podcast with Marc and Julie is a brother and sister project locally cultivated in the Seattle, WA area (specifically Olympia and Snoqualmie). In each episode we discuss the cultural and historical implications of something we take for granted, we give it up or change it, and then tell you how it goes!

Episode 28: Giving up Killing Time with Screen Time
We explored the history and science of screen-time and then tried giving it up for two weeks.What's that mean?

Some say this exercise is supposed to help a person be more mindful of their surroundings and contribute to relationship building. Spoiler -- Marc loves his cell phone.
"If you leave your cell phone at home, you feel impacted by not having it. It's an important part of your daily function and what you can do in a day." - Aimee Mullins
We couldn't agree more (at least Marc couldn't).
