Ep 67 - Technophilia: These Kids Today and Their Phones
You've seen them in restaurants, heads bowed down at the table but not necessarily for prayer. You've seen them at bus stops, standing mere inches from other human beings but completely oblivious. And you've been behind them when the stoplight turns green and their cars don't budge. We live in a world that, like it or not, is addicted to smartphones and the virtually limitless access of information, communication, and recreation they provide. And the hardest thing to accept is not that you have also been one of the people described above; no, the hardest thing is that, outside of a global meltdown, this kind of technological advancement is not going to stop.
On this episode of As You Go, Bo sits down to talk about technophilia and the ubiquitous influence of smartphones and their Internet-capable brethren on various generations. Joined by regular guest co-hosts Mark Paul (Student Pastor at Dunwoody Baptist Church) and Katie Phillips (Senior Writer with Shaunti Feldhahn & Associates), the three consider various points of data about Generation Z and how, as the first generation to grow up completely within the age of the Internet, they see and experience the world differently. They also discuss how to address the "disconnect" that often exists between these young people and those of older generations who can still fathom life before Google, Facebook, Twitter, and a smartphone in every pocket.
This episode is not about bemoaning the loss of innocence from bygone eras. Rather, it is about looking to the future and embracing the good of these astonishing advancements while being mindful of the problems and dangers that come with any great power we suddenly find ourselves able to freely wield.
And it's just the beginning of a greater conversation that we hope you will join in.

I love this podcast!
This is such a fun and enlightening podcast! You definitely should give it a chance. I love that one minute I'm learning something new, the next minute I'm laughing, and by the end I'm always inspired. It doesn't shy away from hard subjects, but every conversation ends positive, with a lot of grace and hope. So much of what Bo and the other guests talk about are subjects I would never spend time thinking about. I totally appreciate this show and look forward to every episode.
