Fellow fangirls, this episode is for you. This week Kelsey and Mary dive into parasocial relationships, aka one-sided relationships, usually between an individual and a celebrity or influencer. They are pop culture enthusiasts, not psychologists, so they chatted with Dr. Sally Theran, Associate Professor of Psychology at Wellesley College in Massachusetts and a licensed clinical psychologist to learn more about the phenomenon of parasocial relationships: what are they, what causes them, and are some of us predisposed to them? Tune in to find out!
