“Digital technology, particularly social media, dominates our world today—and it is clearly not always in our best interests,” said Dr. Strohman. “With ‘The Point’ I will discuss the downsides of social media, including its abusive nature and its ability to be manipulated by bad people for insidious reasons, such as giving child predators access to children, drug dealing, and even human trafficking.

“The Point” will feature U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Swimmer Amy Van Dyken in episode two. Van Dyken was paralyzed from the waist down following a car accident, and she will discuss some of the social media harassment she has received from others who were unaware of her accident.
