NFTs have been facing criticism recently as some investors are being left with assets that are only worth a fraction of the value from when they first bought them.  The volatile market of NFTs and cryptocurrencies can make it easy to make money, but also lose huge amounts too.  The problem can be compounded when celebrities and influencers promote them without also informing followers of the risks.  Jesselyn Cook, investigative tech reporter at NBC News, joins us for more.

 

Next, its something families have been struggling with, the massive amounts of time kids are spending on their screens, but there is a small number of parents who are refusing to give their kids smartphones.  53% of kids have a smartphone by age 11 and that number swells to 89% once they hit 16.  It can be a hard dilemma for families to navigate as children often feel left out and face social pressure as well.  Ellen McCarthy, feature reporter at the Washington Post, joins us for what to know.

 

Finally, why is it so hard to get a restaurant reservation right now?  It’s great for restaurants trying to make their rebound from the pandemic, but tough for customers as you need to plan a little better or have a bit of luck.  Everyone is trying to get back out and there could be fewer options because of pandemic closures.  Lane Florsheim, style reporter at the NY Times, joins us with some tips for nailing down that reservation.
