The No App For Life Podcast
“This is so big, and it doesn’t have a name,” said a student to me back in 2013 when we were editing our film Celling Your Soul explains No App For Life founder Joni Siani. Siani found that when she was trying to explain the harmful elements of our new digital world, she would get caught up in the either good or bad elements of technology. “We have to make a distinction between the utilitarian uses of technology as a tool of mass communication, and the way we use these tools to develop relationships and how we process the values and norms of a society.”
With the support of Filmmakers Collaborative, Celling Your Soul, went on to win more than 20 film awards. The cautionary tale of the first digitally socialized generation and their courage to speak out to say “something just didn’t feel right,” was the power of Celling Your Soul.
When the truth is known it can no longer be ignored, just denied.
We now have a young population more anxious, stressed, depressed – and, ironically, the most digitally connected generation are now the loneliest.
The stories and awareness of our mission now continues with our No App For Life Podcast. As big tech continues to squash and hide the damaging and harmful elements social media poses as a part of life, The No App For Life Podcast offers a powerful voice for those who want to feel a little less alone, learn the shocking activities that are a part of a teens experience, and how to address the mental health issues that have been connected to digital socialization.
In our series – The Harms – you’ll hear from parents who bravely share their stories of how they lost a child to some “silly” online challenge, anonymous apps that exacerbate bullying behavior, deadly drugs that are sold online, even advertised by drug dealers without any accountability.
You’ll also hear from teens and college age students who had no idea that their online behavior was linked to their struggles with depression and anxiety. We’ll also bring you conversations with the leading authorities on digital use and the human experience.
