15 - Hoarders and Hoarding disorder

15 - This week we talk about people who hoard things (objects, animals) so much so that it causes them distress and disrupts their day to day lives. Hoarding disorder has only recently been recognised as a distinct disorder and so we discuss some of the research into what makes someone more likely to hoard, as well as how to treat this disorder. As usual we end up with our "Things we came across" segment, Amy goes dark with discussion about Trolling on Tinder, whilst Hunter goes light by talking about psychologists and reality tv (as well as a lot of discussion of Survivor).
