    Guest Bio

    Radha Patel is a Founder of the premier South Asian Matchmaking Service “Singe to Shaadi”. Never having used dating apps before, she was surprised to hear from so many of her friends and family how they are just not working. Most of the singles she spoke with said they were being open to being introduced, but either their networks weren’t that big or they were being set up with people they had nothing in common with. Radha decided her approach would be to serve as an extension of your “Friend Group” to make more meaningful introductions.

She’s a Disney princess in real life!

Yuko is everything they show you in the movies, but in real life. She’s made the journey of self discovery like they did. Faced adversity, time and time again. Is beloved by everyone she comes in contact with, and can sing her butt off. Her podcast is a lovely walk through her life, her art, and so many other things. Just a pleasure to listen to. It’s truly a gift!

Down to Earth and Full of Heart

After being invited on the show, I started listening to Yuko’s podcast; I should’ve started sooner. It dispels with the ranting and commercial angles of some traditional podcasts and meets people where they are, on a human level.

Yuko brings her ability to connect with people in-person and on-stage, and leads endearing, insightful conversations about art, humanity, creativity, and connection.

mkeenanb ,

Awesome listen for all artists!

Yuko is an awesome host, who gets down to the heart of things; personal, political and creative. You can tell she has a passion for connecting with people through artistic expression, and her conversations with the wide variety of guests bring up so many fascinating questions about the world we live in. Highly recommend.
