We're back with the last podcast of our first culture series and we're talking about the British "stiff upper lip," which is the mentality that one must keep their composure, even when faced with extreme adversity.  This is a concept that is relatively foreign to most Americans, who are slightly more used to expressing their emotions, if not sadness, then most certainly excitement.  But is the idea of having a "stiff upper lip" dying off in Britain?  Let us know your thoughts on the idea of the British "stiff upper lip" over on Facebook or tweet at us!
