Customer Reviews

Vinamrata ,

Original take on the desi experience!

Chai noon is great! As a fellow desi, it’s really awesome to hear Kiran and Hanik discuss topics that impact the desi American community, like identity confusion, navigating dating, and religion. Keep it up!

BalkiBee ,

A nice, light podcast

I enjoy how relatable this podcast is to Desis born/raised in the diaspora. The co-hosts also complement each other very well! It’s unique that one is in the US and the other is in the UK.
