Episode 3: Insta-ntly Addicted

May 22, 2019

Our generation basically grew up as the Internet did too. Was the Internet your first friend? Did you grow up addicted, or deprived? And now, as adults, how do you utilize your social media?
This week we explore how we grew up with (un)limited internet access. We also chat about instas, finstas, baby instas, and ads in social media.
Reach out to us @eatyourcrustpod on insta, twitter, facebook, or gmail - let us know how many snapchat streaks (fire) you have or what your favorite thing to flex on insta is ;)
