Podcast Episode #12

What do we talk about?

There’s so much misunderstanding about the concepts of honor and shame. It seems that people routinely talk past one another when speaking about these ideas. So, in this episode, we define our terms.

  • What is “honor”?
  • What are common misunderstandings when people talk about these ideas?
  • What are examples of honor and shame within various cultures?
