Translating Moral Makeovers

Translating Moral Makeovers

This week our culture vultures discuss three exciting topics from the world of pop culture. Kam's been watching too much TV lately and finds himself hooked on makeover programmes like Property Brothers and Income Property; exploring the tropes & appeal surrounding makeovers. Vernon Adrian Emuang then explains what a social phenomenon called 'moral licensing' can tell us about the behavior of public figures, especially ones in Malaysia. Sharmilla wraps up the episode with a recount of a play she watched, as she ponders over what being 'lost in translation' really means.
