Culture Shocks

Culture Shocks | Next Door Neighbors | NPT

Three Tennesseans who moved to the state from another country share what surprised them about the food, homes, and customs they encountered. They identify a range of bafflements from waving to fellow drivers on country roads to the presence of pet food in grocery stores or eating dinner at 5:30 p.m. The three discuss how over time, things that once seemed novel started feeling like part of home.
