For this week’s episode Pappu & Sweety read out stories of some very eerie, spine-tingling and inexplicable happenings that you, our listeners, have submitted to us. Now, all of these stories are personal experiences, which we think makes them extra creepy. We bring you four stories, from a demon possession, an exorcism, to a spectral sighting and then some more… We all love a good scare, and despite the advance in CGI, nothing delivered a good scare like those 90s movie. Just like the...

September is synonymous with a few things – that Green Day song, Beyonce’s birthday and The September Issue. If you’re not familiar with the last, it’s the 2009 Vogue-centered documentary. The September Issue is kinda like the fashion Superbowl.

Well, heloooo August, happy Raksha Bandhan and welcome to Leo season! I know it’s still hot, and summer feels like that guest with borderline Asperger’s who is oblivious to social cues and is overstaying their welcome, but the air is pregnant with promise…. It was after all during this august month (see what I just did there) 70 years ago that our nation took its first tentative steps into the 20th century as an independent nation. #Happy70 As promised, for this episode we interview...

Summer is the season for nimbu-pani and boob sweat. One of these is our favourite - and it’s definitely not the one that leaves sweat patches. But if summer’s all about making lemonade out of lemons, lets wear our boob sweat with pride as if it’s our own temporary version of Rihanna’s Goddess Isis chest ink. And just like that say hello to this month’s Aaj Ka Kabootar episode. This week’s episode has more Bollywood and Hollywood gossip than your local dentist’s waiting room. CP Show the...

We’re here in the middle of 2017. A giant freak weather storm has not erased us; neither has an authoritarian state of Gilead been declared. For this episode Sweety and Pappu look back at the past six months and share with you our three main learnings so far. Before we dive in though, we decry the mob lynchings of minorities that have sparked up around the country and say #NotInMyName. Amongst all the ugliness that fills the top of our newsfeed, it should be little surprise if we gravitate...

As promised at the end of our last week’s episode, welcome to Mental Health May! Many among us have a little puff of a gloomy cloud hovering over us. On some days it seems to be as light as a wisp of smoke, while on others it is dark and foreboding like a raging storm – so big that it covers our entire head so that we can’t see, think or feel clearly. “Yeah, we could cry until we can't breathe.” – Sadness, Inside Out This week, we say hello to Darkness - our old friend.

You know what I like about April? Well, for starters there are lots of things I don’t like about April – it is the month after my birthday month so it is mostly a sobering month. Like, it’s the month when I take stock of my life and think “what next”. But, here are some of the things I LIKE about April: first of its AAM SEASON, people! Did you get your Aamasutra on yet? Also, #Happy420 Before we begin, can we collectively take a moment to congratulate Serena Williams on her pregnancy!...

‘Is this a joke?’, you ask. ‘No’, I say. ‘I’m ded serious!’, I insist. ‘Trust me you’re going to like this one. Cleaning up can be SO MUCH FUN!’ I continue. At this moment you look at my manic wide-eyed grin (not dissimilar to that of a cult fanatic) and hesitantly agree. Partly coz you are cornered and you have nowhere to go. Well, technically you could go anywhere you please, you’re on the interwebs after all. BUT! You are here for a reason, and we’re going to go on this ride together...
