Travel Broadens The Mind - Or Does It?

Travel Broadens The Mind - Or Does It?

…that’s the question of the week, as Kam Raslan and his guests, Julian Yap and Vernon Adrian Emuang, unpack our obsession with travelling and whether it truly broadens our horizons, as claimed by many. From there, they then move on to talking about swearing, without dropping any foul words along the way, surprisingly. In the second part of the show, Vernon speaks about identity and diasporas, reflecting on his own identity and community. It’s another fun episode that you don’t want to miss!
