Are Birds Real?

Are Birds Real?

In this last episode of A Bit of Culture for the year 2021, Kam Raslan is joined by his sidekicks, Ann Lee and Sim Wie Boon, and together, they wander off into the deep rabbit hole of reflective thoughts. Ann Lee lamented the fate of the arts, theater and cinema, as they became the last few industries that were given the permission to reopen relatively recently. The rise in popularity of conspiracy theories has made Sim wonder whether this is a recent phenomenon or it has always been there, but less visible. And in the second part of the show, Kam looked at practices that are assumed to be universal, but are actually culturally specific, using the home-ownership vs rental duality as an example.
