Sync with YouTube

Very informative and engaging. My only quibble is that there are more episodes of Grand Tamasha on YouTube lately than on the podcast so I can’t listen while walking or driving. But that’s a “good problem”—your audience wants more!

Good overview of Indian politics and foreign policy

I started following this podcast around April of this year. Milan interviews some of the key players and commentators who influence foreign policies of India primarily. He provides a balanced viewpoint. I’ve enjoyed it and as an Indian living in US and Canada I can relate to the viewpoints provided outside in.
