    Halloween V: Typewriter, or Dedflix and Kill

    It’s time for our fifth annual Hindi Horror Halloween episode, hosted by a not-so-spooky Erin and an actual vampire. This year we’re crossing over with our Netflix and Dil series to discuss Sujoy Ghosh’s supernatural ghost hunting series Typewriter.

A fresh take!

Have been following this podcast for a while now & now look forward to every new episode. Being a Bollywood enthusiast & a Bombayite myself, I have more than a passing interest in the topics discussed. I appreciate Matt & Erin’s sincere engagement with the movies they watch & their acknowledgment of the fact that they’re not experts but lovers of film (like all of us). It is all done in a non-fetishised manner, without preconceived notions. It feels as though they’re friends!

Anshita Makwana(mood:eye roll) ,

Incredible podcast!

A Bollywood podcast with better content, relaxed conversations and is surprisingly funny too. The hosts, Erin and Matt and perfectly complementary and fun to listen. With the growth of Bollywood-related podcasts in recent time, this is the one with which I've stuck around. I enjoy the addition of Friendlies and Netflix/Amazon series they discuss. Keep up the good work guys!

Bifl lover

Only did this for the Bifl points. But seriously i love this podcast and the hosts. I hope they don’t learn hindi anytime soon cause i enjoy them butchering the names.
