Assistant Professor of Psychology Keelah Williams was recently interviewed for an episode of the podcast Ten Percent Happier. The episode, titled “Jealousy: Friends & Lovers,” is part of a series on feelings.

The interview focused on Williams’ work on friendship jealousy and her co-authored article, “Friendship jealousy: One tool for maintaining friendships in the face of third-party threats?” The article was published last year by APA PsychNet.

Williams was joined in the interview by Jaimie Arona Krems of Oklahoma State University, who was a co-author of the article. They discussed how jealousy may not always be a bad thing, saying that friendship jealousy, even with its unpleasant feelings, is an overlooked tool of friendship maintenance that may help us maintain valued friendships.
