Hosted by Mr. Patrick Reidy, Plugged In is a monthly podcast offering personal and professional insights from guests with hands-on involvement in the life of adolescents and expertise in education and related fields. Our goal is to partner with parents and adults involved in the formation of young men and women by inviting them to tune into ongoing and engaging conversations that offer insight into the lives, habits, culture, gifts, and challenges of the current generation of adolescents. We hope these insights will enable all of us to raise young men and women of deep faith, sound intellect, and exceptional character.

She offers parents practical tips on how to navigate the often-tumultuous teen years and how to leverage their sons' and daughters' gifts for a hopeful future.
