ash15Oct!! ,

Great desi podcast!

Love the way you talk. Believe it or not you sound very much like an ABCD Californian boy! Great content dude. Keep it up!!

FasterFood ,

The creative Indian!

Love sanjays take on dating and tech especially

Andrew Naveen ,

Highly recommend this to any and all millennial who's going through just life

One of the ways I escape is podcasts. They help you get motivated and recharge your spirit.

Finding "Birdy num num" podcast was the best thing that happened to me a few months back.. Topics run the gamut of daily life, including career, dating, marriage and more things life and work.
