Great and interesting topics
Alex, the host, makes me want to go back and visit Denmark again. Cultural insights are fascinating and help us reflect on our own nuances. Keep this podcast up!
Jaywalking & Peeing in Public? With a title like that, it's got to be interesting!
Check out Episode 3 on jaywalking vs. peeing in public in Denmark. Fascinating and hilarious. It is great to hear insights in the psychology of things like 'cognitive dissonance' and the power of social modeling in our own behavior!
Examples like these make me reflect on the U.S. cultural norms and be more aware of how my behavior is influenced.
Thanks for a great show, Alex! Keep it up. [And I appreciate the brevity of the episodes so I can binge a lot of them at once!]
