Watersheds & The Columbian Interchange

In this edition of A Bit of Culture, we have BFM producers Julian Yap and Michael Gong together with our host Kam Raslan. Beginning with the good old days, the trio analyzes a few different inventions in the yesteryear and try to decide its value today. Then, Kam steers the conversation back to the epoch of The Columbian Exchange, discussing the various contrasts in environmental turning points and cultural practices in the Old World to the New. Lastly, our trio ends with highlighting the advantages of being able to learn history through movies at present times - with that said, should a film always be historically accurate?
