Indicast is India's first multi person podcast. We believe that a discussion is always more interesting than a monologue. We are not experts but knowledgeable about the things we talk. We will be covering anything and everything that might be of interest to a listener of Indian origin so the topics range from Sonia to Sania. The podcast is a mix of english and hindi and we try to keep it very informal. We usually have a serious discussion and balance it out with lighter topic. So expect a good discussion with few laughs. This should gave birth to the Indicast Podcast Network, India's most popular podcast network
