As you may well know, this week we alternate with a news and pop culture episode. So, w‘hat kind of stories will we talk about? – Every kind! Our picks are like a bag of mixed flavoured beans from Harry Potter. All flavoures served, from chocolate sundae to puke-a-rama. So dive right in!
Being the true Bey Hive bees we are, we HAD to unload about the colossal misstep on the part of the Grammy’s for not recognizing Lemonade for what it was – a gift to womankind and humanity. On our side, our own desi qween PC may not continue to serve us her regular ass-kicking dose of Alex Parrish, as Quantico may becanceled. Pappu & Sweety weigh in on how they feel about the show.
Last week, we showered our Show The Bhindi award to NASA’s Christine Darden who’s work and struggle inspired Hidden Figures. This week we talk about India’s own Hidden Figures: Ritu Karidhal, Anuradha TK and Nandini Harinath – who’s work was vital on the Mangalyaan space probe project. Also, ISRO launched a record 104 satellites in a single mission – impressive. But some were not too impressed – find out what the haters had to say (eye roll).
March 8 is an important day. Mark it. Women’s March organization announces A Day Without A Woman to mark this year’s international Women’s Day. What does this mean, and has it been tried before? Let us give you the lowdown.
ALSO THIS WEEK, we want to share our platform to promote a fundraiser – Together, let’s make Indian Women’s #IceHockeypossible [EDIT: At the time of this recording this fundraiser was open, it has now ended. But you can still help my following these girl’s journey on @iwihaf to sports glory as they help break stereotypes.]
This week, Pappu reads out an excerpt from ’An Immigrant’s Song’, a poem submitted by Archana Nair. As our little sisterhood of brown girls grows we would love to share our platform to promote art, voices and fundraisers that support and empower our cause. ALSO, before we peace out DID YOU SEE OUR VERY FIRST INTERVIEW?! Talented scribe, Fiza did an amazing job at capturing our essence.
