Happy Black Friday everyone! Let Distillations keep you company on your drive over to the mall. On today's show, producer Sheri Quinn visits her shopaholic mom to explore how your brain reacts when you start to buy—and why for some this leads to a full-fledged addiction. Then producer Lindsay Patterson examines a chemical found in printer paper that some researchers are concerned might be hazardous to your health.
