The Gym's Toxic List

The Gym's Toxic List

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, Kam with the help of regular culture vulture Sim Wie Boon finally got Ali Johan to cross from the producer’s desk to the front of the mic to debate on the credibility of year-end lists, the varieties of gym culture and the entitlement of fandoms. Ali challenges the upcoming insurgence of year-end lists when December comes. Gym rat Sim compares the well-rounded culture of his gym to classic stereotypes one would associate it with. And when Game of Thrones showrunners reportedly abandoned Star Wars due to its “toxic fandom”, Sim believes that sometimes fanatics are outright disrespectful.
