Episode 33: Is it all the media's fault?

Contributors to the podcast are Siri Helle, a psychologist who wrote the book Smartare än din telefon, about social media, and Amelia Adamo, who has been working with media since the 1970s. Is it the media that creates our health anxiety or does it help us with the answers?
How should we respond to all the advice, encouragement and beautiful and successful people that are everywhere on social media? Does comparing ourselves to others make us sick or does finding like-minded people online make us healthy?
