 Disneyland Dopamine Theory

In this edition of A Bit Of Culture, we welcome back Vernon Adrian Emuang and BFM producer Julian Yap. Kam begins with his discovery behind the science of dopamine and how it works with regards to supporting his favourite football team. Does this little neurotransmitter change the way we go about our lives? Julian steers the conversation to the magical land, Disneyland. The trio discusses the galore of their experiences with this magical land, and how these experiences are somewhat manufactured to achieve utopia. Lastly, Vernon raises a movement called 'critical race theory' that examines cultural, social and legal issues in relation to race and racism - why is it under attack in the US and discusses if it could be a viable option to adopt the concept here in our country.
