Podcast 475: Kids and technology go together like PB&J

Glenn and Susie are joined by Macworld columnist Lisa Schmeiser for a discussion about parenting young kids in the age of social media and omnipresent screens.

Another special guest on the podcast this week: Lisa Schmeiser, who writes [the Generations column here at Macworld, and you probably also know her from The Incomparable podcasts, her amazing So What, Who Cares? newsletter—by day she runs the SuperSite for Windows but we won't hold that against her. Lisa joins us to talk about kids and technology: how to manage screen time, teach kids to be good digital citizens, and help them establish and control their online identity.

There's also plenty of news to discuss this week, including the first round of iPhone 6s reviews, this XcodeGhost malware problem, the fashionably late arrival of watchOS 2, and a little bit on content blockers before we run out of steam and pull the podcast equivalent of ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
