The world as we know it was built on bad behavior, from dance and debauchery to trash talk and tripping. Our panelists dig deep to uncover the many and magnificent ways vice has influenced history and how we continue to crave it today. Harmless fun, character building or the path to self-destruction? You decide.

Dunia sebagaimana kita tahu dibagun berdasarkan perilaku buruk, dari tarian dan pesta pora hingga perkataan sampah dan penuh dosa. Panelis kami menggali lebih dalam untuk mengungkap berbagai cara beragam dan luar biasa buruk telah memengaruhi sejarah dan bagaimana kita terus saja menginginkan hal tersebut hingga hari ini. Kegembiraan yang tidak merusak, pembangunan karakter, atau jalan menuju kehancuran diri? Anda yang memutuskan.
