November 04, 2018 04:24 PM PST
Have you ever really wanted to know what goes on in the mind of today's teens? Not just 'what are they thinking?' but how they feel about life's issues? About truth? About where God is in the world today? At long last, ScreenFish is proud to announce teenFish, a new podcast series that lets teenagers speak about media that matters to them in their own voice. Hosted by Daniel Collins (Infinity Warm-Up), teenFish will be air the first Sunday of every month and invite local youth to engage the truth and lies of the shows and films that excite them.
This month, Daniel welcomes Gabby to talk about Netflix's Insatiable, a new original series that looks at the way we look at others from the outside. Drawing accusations of 'fat-shaming', the show is a satirical look at what happens when a teenage girl suddenly loses a great deal of weight after she's involved in an accident. In a lively first ep, the teens look at body image, labels, and what makes us who we are.dOctober18: Sanjay Rawal (3100: RUN AND BECOME)

Beyond competitiveness and athletic prowess, they run not for glory but for spiritual enlightenment, universal oneness—or because they simply have the responsibility to run. In this 1on1, Steve speaks to Sanjay about why we pilgrimage, the relationship between faith and the physical body and how this story has changed his life.5.03 Goals and Grief in FIRST MAN

In FIRST MAN, Oscar-winner Damien Chazelle (LA LA LAND) gives new life to the story of the Apollo 11 moon landing by looking at the iconic moment through the eyes and experiences of astronaut Neil Armstrong. In doing so, he creates a unique style of 'space film' that spends just as much time with the people on the ground as it does in the shuttle itself.
