A wonderful podcast.

Not only is Deepa a wonderful interviewer and able to bring out the best information held in the minds of the illustrious guests she interviews, but she has written a book which lucidly and beautifully brings together the modern research (in a down to earth way you can easily understand) with the ancient wisdom of the ancient Vedic seers. A delightful read for people like myself who love to validate the ancient texts with cutting edge research.
