Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite logo Two interlocking ribbons, one red, one blue. The word Lite is across the logo in a playful font. The podfeet (two little bare feet) are in the upper right. The background is dark blue with Chat and Chat in the upper left and lower right corners with "across the pond" in thin letter across the bottom. Sounds more confusing than it is!

CCATP #579 – Shai Yammanee on Pulling Back from Social Media

This week we have recurring guest Shai Yammanee back, but this time not to talk about photography, videography or performing as he has in the past. Shai recently decided to remove Facebook from his phone (he still accesses it from his computer) and I wanted to have him on to find out why and also to explore this whole movement of people getting out of social media. We talk about the repercussions for “normal” people but also we learn about how important Instagram is for employment for performers. We talk about how social media makes us feel and what we would lose if we left.

You can follow Shai on Instagram at shai_yammanee and shai_yammanee_photography. You can follow him on Twitter @shaiyammanee.

    Ack! I was listening to (and thoroughly enjoying!) this episode while driving to my doctor’s appointment across town this morning. I thought I could come home and look on this page to find the names of some of the books you were discussing. Drat! No list. 🙁

    Update — I was “forced” to listen again to get the information I wanted. What a sacrifice to have to listen to that gorgeous voice singing at the end again. 😉

    Oh shoot – I didn’t even think to write them down, Sandy! Sorry about that.
