We Stand with Farmers
This week we drop our episode early to highlight the protests from Sikh farmers in India and of course the Sikh community across the UK.
The Indian government are trying to pass a bill which will see farmers faced with major cooperation negotiations to settle for a price on crops as opposed to MSP (minimum support price) which insures they all receive a guaranteed basic income.
Gully also talks about the South Asian Audio Creative group who released alarming stats around the lack of Asian presenters in mainstream radio stations across the country.
They also get into the Dutchavelli allegations and the Millwall fans who booed at the weekend during the BLM knee drop.
The guys give their take on BBC One's Small Axe starring Letitia Wright. The TV episode focuses on the Mangrove restaurant in London's Notting Hill as a community fight back against police brutality and end up standing trial.
We talk about the misuse of police power even in this day, the British Caribbean experience as portrayed in the show and a surprise appearance in the episode from a UK MC.
Gully shares his feelings on the racial attack on the young Sikh Kid in Telford and the double celebration of Gurpurb and St. Andrews Day.
Slang for Slang
Today the guys teach each other some slang from their respective cultures as Gully tries his hand at Punjabi and Joel, Jamaican Patois.
Whilst butchering some of them they both test each other on how the terms could be used in a sentence.
They also talk about the retirement of WWE superstar The Undertaker, the 2020 Mobo nominations and Lady Leshurr's PS5 dilemma.
Tone Down For What
This week we talk about accents and how we use them to identify with our culture and what sense of pride do we feel around them.
Gully talks about his mix between being Scottish Indian and how he see's himself more so Scottish than Asian.
Also how has he benefited from being a mix working in a huge city like London but on the flipside how much has he had to tone down to accommodate for the locals?
Joel talks about the Fresh Prince reunion on how the TV show played such a huge part for him growing up especially without his own dad being around.
