The Lit Pickers is a podcast that celebrates books and bold opinions. Hosted by writers Supriya Nair and Deepanjana Pal, each episode explores literature, authors and reading. The show champions the written word, as well as the biggest ideas, tiniest thoughts, silliest questions, and confounding conundrums. Nair and Pal invite you to their Sunday breakfast table banter, that makes for truly lively commentary for readers and thinkers, and awaken the bookworm in you. So, pop the kettle on, grab a biscuit and listen, as your reading list gets longer and longer.
Our flagship daily news show, where hosts Neha Mathews and Shashank Bhargava talk to in-house experts about what is going on and why you need to care about it
We spend way too much time discussing minuscule facts, character dynamics, story arcs and unique concepts in the wonderful world of science-fiction and overall nerd culture. Think you do that too? Find us and become one with the geeks! And believe it; the Force is totally strong with us.
All public policies -- indeed, all actions by humans -- have two kinds of effects: the effects that are intended, and visible; and unintended consequences, which are invisible. The Seen and the Unseen is a podcast that aims to examine both the seen and the unseen effects of our actions. Presented by Amit Varma (a journalist for a decade-and-a-half, and winner of the prestigious Bastiat Prize for journalism in 2007 and 2015 -- the only person to win it twice), the show takes on a specific public policy in every episode, and dissects its seen and unseen effects. For example: the ban on surge pricing by Uber in Delhi. What is seen is that Uber no longer costs so much; what is unseen is that you cannot get an Uber at all, because of the scarcity that is a direct result of the price control. The host explains the economic reasoning at work, and talks to an expert who breaks it down further. The host will have a panel of experts at his disposal, from a variety of disciplines, and will speak to a relevant expert in every episode. Subjects covered will range from broad ones like the state of education in India, to narrower ones like the banning of 'victimless crimes' like prostitution and gambling.
The show is India's first indie music podcast that showcases the best Indian independent musicians from India. Each episode brings you an artist/band along with an exclusive stripped down session of their original music.

It features all kinds of artists from new-comers to veterans and under a variety of genres from hip hop, blues, soul, to folk, punk, rock, and everything in between.
SEASON 2 IS NOW AVAILABLE ON AUDIBLE SUNO. Why is it difficult for women to prioritise their health? Why is there a vortex of guilt around women's bodies and their medical care? How do we alleviate the fear around women's deepest, most private health concerns? She Says She's Fine is a women's health podcast hosted by popular gynaecologist, Dr. Munjaal Kapadia, whose mission is to bust the shackles around patient-doctor hierarchy, and create a friendly, warm environment for his patients to be treated. The show will explore and open up conversations around sex, periods, contraception, miscarriages, IVF, etc in the context of changing lifestyle choices, advancements in medical technology, misinformation, social taboos and more.

The Paisa Vaisa podcast helps you understand all things money so that you can make well-informed financial decisions. Understand the basics every week as host, Anupam Gupta, talks with experts across a wide spectrum of the banking and financial services industry: CIOs, CEOs, startup founders, bloggers, advisers, even kids - all of them are part of the awesome line up of guests on the show.
A  fortnightly podcast that explains things in the news to help you appear smarter, to an audience that knows no less ;-). Basically, we take topics and attempt to deconstruct them - using generous pilfering from Wikipedia, a bit of humour (that's a flexible usage of the word), Wodehouse quotes and more. Occasionally, we invite guests who know better than us (not a high bar) to discuss fun careers and stuff. Hosted by three pun-loving madcaps who think Malad is the best thing since Android: Chuck, Naren and Srikeit.
