That's a Thing?!

Karen just wanted to know why Elizabeth reads Tumblr on Instagram, and it turned into a two-part episode on how the web evolved from a nerdy, interconnected blogosphere to the semi-siloed mishmash we have today. This is Part 1.

What is That's a Thing?!?

A sometimes belated, already outdated guide to your teens, tweens and everything under 20. In each episode, Elizabeth, a teenager, explains a thing to Karen, her mother. And Karen tells Elizabeth how that thing relates to something she knows. Maybe.
