Smart, engaging, real

I love the vulnerability and intelligence on this podcast. Thank you for addressing real issues and topics which affect the Desi community and contributing to the important work of representing Desis in the media.

Thank you for this podcast

Being born and raised in America, but having Indian roots in a majority white society has always made me feel misunderstood. I’ve never had close Indian friends, but the ones I do come across I feel a sense of home with. Being externally brown but internally completely Americanized definitely makes me self conscious. This is not something many people can relate to, unless they are themselves a first generation american. Thank you so much for making this podcast because it’s nice to hear experiences that are similar to mine be voiced. I think it’s important to inform others of this culture.

Incredibly Enlightening, I can listen for hours

The two of you have a great on air chemistry and while you keep it light and humorous the moments of deep reflection are nuggets that force me to reflect. Keep it going!
