    Cycling, Causes & Creativity: Four Women in Bangalore Share Their Stories

    Cycling, Causes & Creativity: Four Women in Bangalore Share Their Stories

    Sometimes we need to rethink why we do things, and ironically take a step back in order to move forward.

    Having been a fan of cycling since the pandemic began, a fan of outdoor activities and an expert of ten years of Bangalore Traffic, I decided to chat with the folks at @BengaluruMoving to hear from a few ladies about their transport journey in the city.

    Remember, sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.  And how you travel can be as important as where you travel to!

    If Beyonce Needs to Market Why Don't You?

    Marketing gets a bad reputation especially amongst artists who think "well if my art or app is just that good, I won't need to market."

Bharadwaj Pendyala ,

Much Love for BNN <3

From the topics you choose, and practical advice to which once could easily relate to. Sanjay is doing an incredible job. Here’s to many more Podcasts.

7e'sandanerd ,

Super Relatable

All very relatable content especially for our generation. I think it’s great content and it’s what we think about but ,don’t talk about. It’s great to hear someone else speak on these topics.

Ashishpamak ,

Topics are really unique

Sanjay is great with his topic selection. While he says he has a list and takes notes of stuff he wants to address, but if you listen to the podcast it sounds organic. Many times he has picked topics from his social media comments, which is great. I would suggest Sanjay if he can have guest more often and chat with some of his comic friends about serious topics and give it a humorous spin (this would happen organically). Like planting more trees or volunteering being ignored in India. (just a suggestion) I would definitely recommend this podcast for some great laughs and awesome topic selection. Keep going Sanjay. Cheers!
