I'm loving this podcast!

I first heard about it because my friend was a guest on the show, but I have to admit I have completely devoured the entire health season. I'm loving the hosts as well as the guests and the "stupid question" portion is kinda fun. Highly recommend it.

Great podcast covering wide range of topics relevant to the Desi American community

I love listening to this podcast, and wish I had more of these conversation with my Desi friends! I really appreciate the focus on health this season, and how many topics they are able to cover, from both Western and Eastern perspectives. I also like how open Akaash and Arjun have been about their therapy experiences, and hope it encourages more people to seek out therapy and mental wellness.

If I had one critique, it would be that I do feel like the two hosts could do a better job of listening to their guests. I often feel like they jump in too quickly or interrupt the folks that they are interviewing. It feels a little unsettling as a listener. Still love their insight, but do think that if they listened more the flow of the podcast would be better.
