29: Cultural Heritage & Identity, Are You A Product of Your Environment?
The first of two December episodes, which form as part of the conclusion of Season 1 of the Savageers, arrives with special guest Theophilus (TJ) Nelson, of Marinel Foundation and a pro MMA combat fighter.  We touch upon several interesting themes around what we pick up and leave out when learning from our parents growing up, what values we hold that have come at odds against mainstream society's, the pressures of holding onto your cultural identity as an ethnic minority, and how much do we take from our social settings and environment which contributes to our sense of self.
