Season: 13 Episode: 186
The world isn’t netural. Our culture is after the hearts and minds of our kids and social media is the battle ground. Parents aren’t aware of the dangers lurking behind the screen in the hands of their own kids. Chris Gonzales, a former FBI agent, does. Chris shares some of the dangers behind the screen and what parents need to be aware of in this digital age. After years in the agency, Chris left the force and launched Goodtube Kids – a platform where kids and families can grow in education and entertainment rooted in the truth.

After 19 years in law-enforcement, including fourteen years in the FBI, Chris Gonzales realized
the greatest war we are in is for the hearts and minds of our youth. As a Christian, husband, father and pastor, Chris saw the need to fight for our children in the digital realm and to provide a safe place for kids online. So in January of this year, Chris resigned from the FBI to launch GoodTube Kids. A new platform where youth can laugh, learn, and grow watching entertaining and educational content anchored in the truth and goodness of the Christian Faith.
