PA Media seeking psychologist

ended 31. March 2022

A journalist from PA Media, the UK's leading newswire, is keen to speak to a psychologist either tomorrow or Friday morning in relation to an upcoming piece on the launch of the new Kardashian TV show. She wants to know why so many people love watching reality TV shows like this? What is the emotional connection between people and reality TV? If you'd like to chat to her, jot some quick thoughts down and we'll also line up a call.

There is so much to this, just a few things: It doesn't take much cognitive power to watch and follow, it's easy low energy consumption. Parasocial relationships and living vicariously through the stars. Novelty and stories, amplified distraction. Happy to chat tomorrow or Friday.
