The seen and the Unseen – Being Gay in India ft Navin Noronha

Writer, stand-up comic and the host of the popular podcast ‘Keeping it Queer’, Navin Noronha, joins the host Amit Verma in this compelling episode about growing up queer in a homophobic country like India, being a part of a conservative family, coming out to friends and family, his journey from a small town to Mumbai, and the joy of acceptance.

The Joe Rogan Experience ft Elon Musk

If you’ve been wondering about all the news about Elon Musk and pictures of him smoking weeb weed floating around in mainstream idea, then you’re not alone. In this riveting conversation between the two powerhouses, Elon Musk geeks about tunnels, hyperloop, electric cars, how he’d make aeroplane designs better, AI, and more.

His occasional sarcasm laden ‘haha’s’ sounded like he was laughing at us lesser mortals. It is sad that the only bits that most of the media seems to have picked up from this over 2-hour long chat areElon sipping on whiskey and smoking marijuana on the livestream. Perhaps a reflection of the clickbait’y’ times we live in!

The Knowledge Project: Getting Better by Being Wrong with Annie Duke

The knowledge project hosted by Shane Parrish is an amazing podcast that features a diverse range of in-depth conversations with some of the smartest people on the planet.

In this episode, Shane talks to Annie Duke, former professional poker player and author of the new book, Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts.

This podcast is a masterclass in decision making. No description I write can do justice, so I’ll just let you listen to the conversation. 

Business Wars: Marvel vs DC

Marvel which is owned by Disney today is one its crown jewels. Much like any success story, Marvel had an incredibly hard slog to be where it is today. It took on the might DC and came out victorious. In the past decade, it created the concept of cinematic universes, redefined superhero movies, and the meaning of the word blockbuster. 

These episodes capture the bruising battles between Marvel and DC in a gripping manner.
