Appearing on Chai Noon this week

I was invited by my old friend Hanik (hpkotecha.com) to appear on his podcast Chai Noon this week.

Chai Noon is a weekly podcast hosted by Hanik and Kiran about the desi experience outside the realm of South Asia. I’ve been a fan of the show since they started. It’s relaxed, fun and they have a variety of interesting guests on each week.

Hanik and I had a great conversation that ranged from growing up in Durban to our love of the natural beauty of South Africa, our experiences of Diwali away from home and my experiences studying what’s often considered an unconventional degree within the Indian community in Durban. Of course, being Chai Noon, we had to talk about food – a lot. We also got to catch up and reminisce about the (still unfinished) animated film we were making back in Grade 4 with our friends (Mission to Mars).

This was my first experience being on a podcast and it’s inspired me to start seriously considering getting into the game. Watch this space 😉

The show comes out this week; I will be sure to link to it on the blog as soon as it airs.
