The High of the Buy (aka Shopping Addiction)

Gaby talks to a compulsive buyer to understand the real motivations for over-shopping. April Benson, one of the leading psychologists who helps compulsive buyers, introduces us to the emotional and psychological reasons for shopping. And to get a personal look at it, Avis Cardella, author of "Spent: Memoirs of a Shopping Addict," talks about her own experience and motivation for compulsive buying. Finally, because our culture seems so addicted to shopping, Lan Nguyen Chaplin gives us some insight into where that comes from: spoiler alert, we learn it as children. 

TW: One of the guests in this episode refers to "the two genders."
