Mary Pritchard interviewed about the emotional impact of ‘keeping up with the Joneses’

Mary Pritchard, a professor of psychological science, recently was a featured guest on a podcast exploring the financial and emotional downsides of trying to keep up with the polished lives of others in our social circle.

Pritchard also was interviewed about stress eating by a reporter for Thrive Global. A blog post based on that conversation can be found here:
