This podcast attempts to spark conversations on navigating our early twenties in a more meaningful way.
We are a gang of four college friends -- Gyani(24), Sodhi(24), Shubhu(24) & Preet(23), figuring out life in runtime. And we wanna document it, sharing our experiences with the world!
Every Sunday, one of us takes the lead on a topic that has been most pressing in our professional/social lives, and all of us take it from there :)

Guest Episode with Debarghya (Deedy) Das!
Welcome to one of the biggest episodes on this podcast, on this one we sit down with Deedy(yes, from the Deedy resume fame!) to talk about his life's journey, career decisions, relationships, fitness and a lot more! Deedy has a lot of stories to share, and we have a funny feeling about him making it big in the podcasting world :)
This episode is especially interesting for folks doing/have done Computer Science as their major as he talks about his transition from working at Google & Facebook to now working at a startup in the valley. One thing we've learnt from talking to people on the show is that a huge amount of skills are transferrable across different sectors of life - and this was one thing that was very clear as I reflected on this conversation. Lots to unpack here, tune in and enjoy!

New Year, New Me - 2021 Kickoff episode
On this episode of the Early Twenties podcast, the four of us sit down to do a review on 2020(as they say, Hindsight is 20/20), and discuss goals for the new year. We discuss finance, relationships, work and martial arts - along with the usual bakchodi that comes with our episodes.
Tune in and let us know whether you like these free-flowing conversations better than the scripted ones? Well, we never did scripted ones anyway :)

Changing the world, one programmer at a time | Guest episode with Abhishek Gupta (CEO @ NavGurukul)
If we don’t take responsibility of weeding out unwanted societal elements, it will eventually come back and bite us! — Abhishek
On this episode of the Early Twenties Podcast we learn about Abhishek’s journey of navigating from the helm of capitalism to an agent of change.
He sold a startup right after college and now runs Navgurukul, a foundation that enables youngsters from under privileged communities to get high paying jobs in the industry.
We dig deep into his quest for happiness and meaning, evolving through experience instead of intellect and how everyone can contribute towards a better society. Fun fact- Abhishek went from being a temperature sensitive person to living without a fan in Delhi summer and bathing in the river in hilly winter.
He is an intense personality and so is this episode. Rest assured, it’s going to be a lot of learning and unlearning. Jump right in!

Running a thousand kilometers in eight months | Celebration Episode with Gyani
On this episode, we are celebrating Gyani's 1000 kilometer running goal this year. On the one-year anniversary episode of the Early Twenties, we had committed to mileage goals for 2020, Gyani went ahead and killed it in eight months!
We go behind the scenes, and talk about Gyani's running consistency and how controlling the diet helped him lose 16 kilos in this time period. Running is one of those things that are discussed often on this podcast, and we never get bored of it. Continuing on the thread of making commitments on this public platform, we commit to training goals for our full marathon attempt in Jan/Feb 2021.
Drawing parallels between running and life isn't much of a stretch, and that's why they say, Keep hammering.
