Airs Sunday, July 24, at 6 p.m. You probably don’t even notice them, but social norms determine so much of your behavior - how you dress, talk, eat, and even what you allow yourself to feel. These emotional norms are so entrenched we never imagine they can shift. But hosts Alix Spiegel, Hanna Rosin and Lulu Miller examine two social experiments that attempted to do just that: teach McDonald’s employees in Russia to smile, and workers on an oil rig how to cry.
