Lonely Exotic Geniuses

The culture vultures are back to nurture your minds with another three riveting topics. Kam starts off by asking why we find movie heroes and heroines so compelling when a lot of them lead rather solitary lives. Grey then talks about how we tend to exoticise cultures that we’re unfamiliar with and Uma ponders on the possibility of there being geniuses in the world who are unable to reach their full potential because society won’t let them.
