    How Long Should You Wait Before Saying 'I Love You'? feat. Relationship Coach Ekta Dixit & Michaela Stone Cross

    Hi Overthinkers.
    Do you find yourself feeling a bit skeptical about the whole dating scene? Starting to lose hope that dating apps will ever lead to anything? Wondering about how you can step up your dating game in 2024?

    Well, you're in luck! Your effervescent host Surbhi is joined by relationship coach Ekta Dixit and writer/journalist Michaela Stone Cross for a chat about the ups and downs of dating.

    From ghosting to bread-crumbing, kitten-fishing to love bombing, we cover it all. Plus, we also explore how our childhoods impact our adult relationships and even touch on the not-so-surprising trend of LinkedIn Stalking.

    Stuff we overthought:


    Are we romanticizing toxicity?
    What if we're just hooked on sadness?
    Is it cool to stalk someone on LinkedIn before meeting them?
    Daddy and Mommy issues and how they affect our relationships as grown-ups.

    Trust us, this is one discussion you won't want to miss!

    Why We Can't Stop Watching True Crime ft. Aryaan Misra and Aishwarya Singh

    Can't get enough of true crime shows? Are gruesome murder stories your guilty pleasure? Ever wonder if you're watching too much true crime?

    Hey Overthinkers! In this episode, Surbhi is chatting with the hosts of the popular true crime podcast Desi Crime; Aishwarya Singh and Aryaan Misra, to overthink what our fascination with true crime says about us as a society. Are we just learning how to stay safe, or do we all secretly wish we were serial killers? Plus, we end with a fun quiz on some wild crime stories from South Asia.

    stuff we overthought:


    Is true crime making us more anxious?
    How much crime's really out there?
    Why do women enjoy stories with female victims?
    The Good, The Bad, and the Monkey Man

    How Talking to Yourself Can Change Your Life feat. Ventriloquist Seema Golcha

    How Talking to Yourself Can Change Your Life feat. Ventriloquist Seema Golcha

    Do you talk to yourself when no-one's around? Ever feel like your creativity is buried under the weight of self-doubt? What if talking to puppets is the confidence breakthrough you've been waiting for???

    In this very special episode of the Overthink Tank, Surbhi Bagga sits down to overthink with Seema Golcha, a ventriloquist and comedian. Seema discovered her love for ventriloquism after getting married and needed a creative way to express herself. She has created some ground-breaking characters like Jack Denials and a sassy granny. On this episode, you'll get a chance to learn more about the art of ventriloquism, and the power of discovering your "inner voice."

    Stuff we overthought:


    Figuring out what the heck you're meant to do in life
    The Art Of Ventriloquism
    Turning that inner voice in your head into a talking-out-loud voice (freaky, right?)
    Can you crack jokes without being a total jerk?

    When did hair-care get so...complicated? feat. Hair Expert Dr. Taniyaa Bakshi & Zorawar Ahluwalia

    So, how much hair on my pillow is too much? Why does having a killer hair day put me in such a great mood? Wait, is that a grey hair???

    Hello Overthinkers! Welcome to Season 7!

    On this episode, Surbhi is hanging out with Dr. Taniyaa Bakshi, a hair specialist, who's all about natural hair care and Zorawar Ahluwalia, who still uses a 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner, and life partner. Together, they will be delving deep into why on earth are we so obsessed with our hair and how it magically boosts our self-confidence.

    Stuff we overthought:


    Why is hair such a major thing nowadays?
    How does hair affect our self-confidence?
    Different hair loss treatments and if they actually do more harm than good?
    How different cultures view and value hair?
    Personal stories of bad haircuts.

    Tune in as we overthink our obsession with hair. Like fleabag said, hair is everything, so let's ask why that is!

    How Can I Afford to Treat Myself Without Feeling Like I've Sinned?

    Do you ever ask, "Is it okay to pamper myself a bit? Why is everything so damn expensive? Could I justify buying those sneakers now or will the guilt of not waiting for a sale consume me?! — then, this episode is for you.

    On today's episode, Surbhi is joined by the passionate PPF advocate and comedian, Shreeja Chaturvedi, along with sweet treat enthusiast and creator, Ankita Chawla.

    We overthink guilt associated with money, how it's inherited from our parents' complex relationship with money and how to save for the future without sacrificing your happiness in the now.

    Warning: We're get so real about our money worries in this episode, that you might think we're about to spill our deepest secrets - our bank statements! 😂💰

    Is the Beauty Industry Messing With Our Minds?

    Is the Beauty Industry Messing With Our Minds?

    Ever caught yourself wondering if your skin could look better? Or if your stomach should be flatter? And seriously, does my parlour aunty secretly hate me? Trust us, we have all been down this rabbit hole.

    In today's episode, join your host Surbhi alongside the brutally honest Srishti Dixit and the internet's favorite dermat, Dr. Agni Kumar Bose. We're diving deep into the land of beauty, covering everything from skincare worries to embracing our own genes.

    We've overthought it all:


    From skincare rituals to battling insecurities
    Is the beauty industry a friend or a black hole?
    Finding what works for you
    The constant urge to change our bodies, in a world that keeps shifting ideals.
    Embracing every bit and owning those genes

    Tune in as we try to rise above the world of beauty trends – the ones that seem to appear and then disappear faster than you can say "mascara."
