Discussion Podcast 7, Relationships

are complicated, and for most of us, very necessary. Americans tend to show their passion openly while other cultures can be much more conservative. Where should we draw the line? Social gatherings where men & women meet are taboo-is it worth going to jail to experience some fun? What makes a relationship/marriage work? The recipe for a perfect relationship is revealed.

Jessica, Christy, Katrin, Jihyun, Esther, & Dave contemplate this tumultuous drive inherent within all of us. Very open & honest viewpoints expressed from Korea, Peru, Iran, & America.
