This week, culture vultures Ong Jo Lene and Uma rejoin Kam for another gripping discussion on anything and everything pop-culture related. Uma opens the show with an insight on cultural relativism in the ‘age of outrage’: is it always justified? Jo Lene recounts her trip to Manila and talks about coping mechanisms when faced with poverty. Last but not least, in lieu of the riots in the U.S., Kam gives his thoughts on the removal of historic statues and whether or not it’s relevant in a Malaysian context.
