Disgust is one of those things that is universal and yet so individual. In fact, although we’re sort of biologically primed for the emotion, the stuff that grosses us out is actually something we learn.

Tonight, we thought it would be kind of fun and kind of gross to delve into the gag-inducing world of the emotion of disgust.

Not an episode to listen to while eating because we’re taking a journey around the world to explore some of the most disgusting behaviors of each culture.

In this episode we explore:

  • Why you won’t want to eat in a restaurant in China
  • The reason shower frequencies vary around the globe
  • The hidden reason why some people are disgusted by President Trump
  • What Cottage Cheese reminds Raymond of
  • And the one thing Shanny won’t put in her mouth

So get ready to be grossed out as we take disgust around the globe.
