What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, June 15, 2018: 

Monday night at 10 on WITF-TV,  POV presents the documentary film Quest.  The critically-acclaimed and multi-award-winning film follows a North Philadelphia family for 10 years.  Chris "Quest" Rainey brings hip hop artists from all over the city into his home studio giving them an opportunity to be creative instead of hanging out on the streets.  During that decade, his daughter grows into a teenager and is the victim of gun violence.  It's a film about race and class in an urban setting.

Appearing on Friday's Smart Talk to discuss important film are Director Jonathan Olshefski and Producer Sabrina Schmidt.

Also on the show, when your children go over to a friend's house to play, attend a birthday party or just visit - how much do you know about where they're going and the people who will there?  Are there pets in the home?  How about a swimming pool?  And what about a gun in the home and if so is it secure so kids can't get to it? 

These may be tough questions to ask but the group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is on a campaign encouraging parents to ask those questions.

Joining us on Friday's program are Shari Jacobson and Mary Markle from the Central Valley chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
