    In the first episode after our winter hiatus, we kickstart a new series entitled "Offbeat" where we speak to people across the institute who have tried out unconventional things during their time in institute and beyond. For this first episode in the series, we speak to Zarin Shihab, a alumna of the HS department and a professional actor. We speak to her about her career in the film industry, how insti shaped her experience, and some fun stories from her time here. We hope you enjoy the conversation, and we'd like to thank her for coming on!

    What not to do in insti

    What not to do in insti

    In this special episode, the T5E Podcast team welcomes IITM's new batch of 2020, and tells them what they should not do when IITM reopens.

    One of the important "not-to-do's" is to not take anything your seniors say very seriously. Tune into listen as a bunch of seniors reminisce about their time in the institute, and for an additional segment of light bulb jokes.
