Episode 1 - Welcome to the Deep Culture Podcast

When we cross borders or live between different cultural worlds, we discover new parts of the self and learn to see the world in new ways ways. In Episode 1, host Joseph Shaules introduces the themes of this podcast. It will explore the psychological impact of intercultural experiences, informed by the sciences of brain, culture and mind. This podcast is inspired by the work of Edward T. Hall, who believed that deep forms of intercultural understanding are harder than they might seem, that intercultural experiences can be transformational, and who wouldn’t be surprised by the level of conflict and misunderstanding in our 21st century “global village”.
