On Point Radio has had several outstanding shows that examine our relationship to technology and how it is influencing our daily lives. “Wired Life and Your Brain” and “Texting and Human Contact” are a good place to start on this topic. Older adults will gain great insights into young people if they listen to the show about texting and how different young people’s outlooks are on the ways to communicate. How technology is influencing thinking is further explored on their show called U.S. Creativity in Question that makes you stop and wonder how creativity may be getting stunted by all this time spent interacting with machines. Are you a Tom Ashbrook fan yet? You will be after listening to these three thoughtful shows.
