A new study found that social media use, television viewing and computer use over a four-year period predicted more severe symptoms of anxiety and depression among adolescents. We talk with study author Patricia Conrod about the research. Also, host Jeremy Hobson remembers his friend Kay Evans, who took care of him when he was a little kid growing up in Urbana, Illinois. Evans died last week at the age of 77 after a battle with cancer. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Jan. 9, 2020, full broadcast.
