Positivity In Peril

Kam Raslan | Dhanya Nair | Vernon Adrian Emuang

Positivity In Peril

It’s a laughter-filled episode of A Bit of Culture as Kam and regular guests Dhanya Nair and Vernon Adrian Emuang discuss different facets of modern culture, peeling through the topics layer-by-layer. Our culture vulture gets the ball rolling by looking at Barbie’s latest line up consisting of notable real-life figures, made into figurines, and wonders whether they can actually change or shape children’s minds as they grow older. Afterwards, Vernon talks about the possibility of positivity being suppressed by the powers-that-be in order to control society. In the second part of the show, Dhanya speaks about the struggles of not being able to speak her mother tongue. Another episode you don’t want to miss!
