Nice beginning - but shouldn't the host add some value
Captures Mint's key stories in a digestible capsule. But here's what the host (usually Nandita Mathur in a deadpan bored-out-of-mind tone) contributes: "Right...True....Great... ummm" - rinse, repeat. Just let R. Sukumar or the expert get along with it if you're not going to add more value to the story or offer an opinion!
I love this podcast
Great source of Indian business news and opinions. As a US-based listener, very hard to find good Indian podcasts focused on news. Recommend.
