Episode Description

Kathryn interviews cultural psychologist Michele Gelfand PhD, author of “Rule Makers, Rule Breakers: How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire Our World”. In 2011, Gelfand and her colleagues conducted a major cross-cultural investigation of the behaviors of 7,000 people in more than 30 countries. This led Gelfand to develop the tightness-looseness classification system of cultures that is the focus of her new book. Gelfand, Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland, is featured in The Washington Post, NPR and the NYTimes. Kathryn also interviews humanitarian Hanna Jaff Bosdet, star of the Netflix series “Made in Mexico”. Bosdet was born in San Diego to a Mexican (Catholic) mother and a Kurdish (Muslim) father and learned from a young age about bias and discrimination; in America it is not socially ideal to be either Mexican or Muslim, and she is both. Bosdet knew these biases were wrong, and she was determined to change that narrative.
