    Muhammad Moiz, Mariam Shafqat Goraya and Tamkenat Mansoor come on the podcast for a mammoth Group Therapy session where we discuss ourselves, our content and our journeys.  

    This may not be the podcast you were expecting but this may be the podcast you need; honest, raw and vulnerable, the content creators go in depth of everything that happened to them that made them who they are today. How they were knocked down and how they learned to rise from the ashes to reclaim yourself.   

    From Pakistan's rising radicalism to toxic masculinity, from heartbreaks to hate speech, to receiving hate online to dealing with family, from being shunned by those you love to reclaiming yourself, we put all of ourselves out there in this podcast.

Shams Tabraiz ,

A gem of a podcast. Bravo!

I am so glad to find this podcast! Intellectual, thought provoking and informative. An excellent source to learn about the history of sub continent in a truly objective and unbiased way. In my opinion the star of the show is the host who knows how to ask the best questions and bring out the best information from his guests. Bravo!

Genuinely curious Pakistani conversations

Great conversations between Pakistanis, and those of Pakistani origin. Matters of concern to that community are always addressed with humor and nuance.
