A refreshing view into the Tamil community

If you are looking for another tech podcast you have come to wrong place; however, if you need to reboot your mind with everything other than tech then you have come to the right place. The host does make reference to Tamil food and some cultural norms. So if you are not from the Tamil community or have not spent inordinate amount of time with the community these may be alien to you. If you want to reconnect with the community in a way that keeps up with the evolution of this community as a diaspora this is an amazingly refreshing podcast for you.
BTW this is also a great place to find the best kothu rotti places in TO!
