Disgust: The Culture of Gross

Wit Without Wisdom, Ep. 11

WAD Disgust pod.jpg

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.

So 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:

  • What Cottage Cheese reminds Raymond of

  • Why you might want to avoid eating in a restaurant in China

  • The reason shower frequencies vary around the globe

  • 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.

We’re S.K. Anthony and Raymond Esposito, your hosts at Writers After Dark. She writes those urban-fantasy–superhero-badass-chicks-with-a-touch-of-romance stories and he writes those dark fiction-things-that-go-bump-in-the night tales.

When it comes to writing, we don’t agree on genre, but we do agree that . . . we love stories . . . and one of the things we love most: hanging out in our mostly-sober, Writers After Dark studio and debating the merits of just about anything related to the story of life.
