Your culture shapes everything - yes, everything - about who you are and what you do. So how, exactly, is your culture showing? And when should you let it shine or let it, well, not? World cultures expert Dean Foster (www.deanfosterglobal.com) and longtime friend Tom Peterson search for, and occasionally find, answers to these questions as they explore different world cultures in each episode. Along the way, Dean and Tom revel in the glories of the Japanese toilet, sip strong coffee with friends in Ethiopia, yearn for finely-crafted Argentinian pink underwear - and much more!
