Another episode, another incredible lineup of guests to talk about the issues that matter most to our generation. This is Youth Rising by NCS, the podcast for young people, made by young people. On today’s episode we’re having a look at privacy and ask the question: in this day and age, is privacy a luxury? Being part of online communities and participating in social media has become the norm. We’ve become accustomed to having access to people’s private lives and there can be an expectation on what we should be privy to, especially when it comes to celebrities.
We are joined by retired British Army captain and Mermaids patron Hannah Graf MBE and her husband, actor, writer and co-Mermaids patron Jake Graf about their decision to share their relationship and parenting journey on social media.
How do we navigate being online and still retain a sense of our private lives? Are we able to be on social media and not feel exposed? And is it possible to stay truly connected with our peers without an online profile? Listen along to hear their insights.
Plus, the Youth Rising team share their perspectives on consent when it comes to parents sharing images of their children online, and Kate Edwards from the NSPCC talks us through some practical ways to stay safe online and where to turn to if you experience any problems.
