    #Socialdilemma #AI #NepaliPodcast #Ep14



    Contrary to their own words, the makers of 'The Social Dilemma' relentlessly paint a picture that shouts one-sided gloom and doom. The highly dramatized documentary was released on Netflix this September and we wouldn't really blame you if you missed it. It is, after all, only one in a long list of putative eye-openers—The Creepy Line, Terms and Agreements May Apply, The Great Hack, to name a few. All with the same broad message—there is more to social media than connecting like-minded people.



    In this episode, we present our take on the documentary and the possible ramifications of such algorithmic recommendation engines on the Nepali society. We have barely seen the tip of the iceberg of the intolerance and polarization that can be bred through the social media platforms we find our lives so intertwined with—hopefully, we never have to. And what does it take to prepare yourself for that? All of that in this episode.

    #Dashain #Festival #NepaliPodcast #Ep13

    Did you know Dashain wasn't celebrated in this pleasant so called "Dashain Weather" long back then? A lot of us didn't know it too. Thank goodness, they shifted it. With this fact, its that time of the year again. Dashain is back and we are back with an episode talking about it. This week we talk it out about Dashain, the nostalgia, the food, the punishment we got at school for not completing Dashain Homework, Dashain ko tika, Cards and Langurburja, The Dakshina, The pop culture related to it and how Dashain might be a bummer for more people this year due to Covid-19 Pandemic.

    About Youth & Politics

    About Youth & Politics

    About Youth & Politics

    Politics comes from the Greek word Politiká, meaning 'affairs of the cities'. From 'affairs of the cities' to 'a dirty game'. Talk about the downgrade. And while Aristotle had an absolute flair for romanticizing otherwise boring proceedings, we don't. You. Me. All of us. We despise politics, more so the political parties and the leaders. Quick to blame, quicker to shame, and come every 5 years, we end up voting for the same. Repeat.

    So in this episode, hear us talk about our shared frustrations about the state of our national politics and how the indifference of the youth only ends up exacerbating it. We get the leaders we deserve, and we will not deserve better until we educate ourselves better. So, episode 12 of What The Guff, here's to being more politically aware.

    About "Nepali Music" 

     We didn't think we'd be reaching 11 episodes when we started this, but here we are. Looks like we ain't a lazy bunch of people after all, YAY!! In this episode, we talk about how Nepali music has evolved throughout the years, from watching top 10 countdowns on Local channels to YouTube. How the scene has changed and how it has affected the artists and the listeners, how Covid-19 has played a role in the life of musicians in Nepal. From "lajalu muskan le priyasi, chori lagyau mann mero timile" to " Sochejhai jindagi rainacha" and " lakhau hajarau madhye timrai muskan". We talk about the journey and different aspects and what we think are important and what changes are happening.   

     Special thanks to Ankit for adding some soul to our intro music with his guitar piece.

    About College Life | Ep. 10 | What The Guff! | Podcast

    About "College Life"  
    Made it to the 10th episode. Woohoo!! Who would have thought? Celebrations aside, in this episode, we talk about our college life with our in-house motivational speaker. We did this episode, in part, to show off that we all went to and have graduated from college. And then, reminiscing the glory days, the fun, the friends, them "sugar, spice, everything nice" moments. Finishing that off with a TED Talk that absolutely no one asked for.

    About Nepali Festivals | Ep. 09 | What The Guff! | Podcast

    About Nepali Festivals 

     It is believed that the festive season in Nepal begins with the Shrawan Sakranti and then practically never ends. In this week's episode, we talk about the love/no-love relation we have with the festivals in Nepal. The flavor and the fun, the rituals and the rang and tons of delicious cuisines. But the essence of the celebrations has been changing over the last several years, for the better or the worse. What do you make of that? What are your favorite festivals?
