Social media makes it easy to see where your friends spend their money, but we don’t see how they are saving. We talk with a researcher who says this creates an inaccurate perception, leading us to spend more. We also learn how to make vegan eats that are accessible and appealing and we take a look at rulings on Medicaid work requirements in Arkansas and Kentucky and consider whether they’ll affect other states.
