The Myths Behind Being Laughed At

Kam Raslan | Umapagan Ampikaipakan | Ann Lee

11-Nov-17 17:00

The

Kam starts off the show with a surprising question: Should he get a Masters degree? Which Uma and Ann respond to encouragingly by reminiscing on their own up-hill journeys in the pursuit of education. Uma goes on to share his thoughts on the phenomenon of myth-making surrounding heroes both real and fictitious. Finally, ABOC-first-timer Ann Lee schools the other two about gelotophobia (the fear of being laughed at) and it’s connection to our everyday experiences.
