Americans are “cutting the cord” on their satellite and cable TV at a record pace, but they’re also discovering that parental controls are sorely lacking on popular streaming services.

What’s a parent to do?

Melissa Henson, the program director for the Parents Television Council, is our guest this week on a special edition of Live The Adventure Radio.

We discuss the findings of the report, including:
