Yelling Degenerates – 24 – Raji Aujla – The Renaissance Woman

This week we hung out and talked with the coolest and brightest girl in the country, Raji Aujla. Since heading east to Toronto from British’s Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Raji has become a game changer in the Toronto business and arts communities. Her arsenal of skills, experience and qualifications are second to none. She’s made a significant and lasting impact thru her many ventures, positions and roles in journalism, cultural curation, art direction, fashion design, branding, marketing strategy, consulting and more. That is all topped off with her endlessly inspiring and selfless philanthropy work. We’d call her Nanak incarnate but some people would get mad so we won’t call her that publicly. Just to her face. She was the perfect person to discuss everything from women’s issues, tipping culture, racism, overcompensating as minorities, art as therapy, personal fulfillment, to which kind of fruit to sex.

Vishal – A Short Film by Sumit Judge

Vishal, a 22-year old international student, finds himself in a dingy, crowded suburban basement, trying to determine how he can balance work and school. Engrossed with his longing for home, and his inability to confess to his mother the hardships he suffers daily, Vishal is persuaded by his roommate Sourav to skip school and start work at an Indian restaurant. The chaos, and the workers remind of home, but also foreshadow what life can and probably will be for the next few years. His conversation with Dev during a delivery run disheartens him, as Dev’s comfort with living a life of limbo seems more normal than unnatural. An incident at work further reaffirms the doubts he has of studying in Canada, away from home.

Yelling Degenerates – 23 – Welcome Back Sumit!

Another episode of complete chaos as we welcome back Sumit Judge back to the podcast. We talk about fat shaming, what we’d tell our younger selves, bitcoin and more! Please don’t judge us after this one.

Yelling Degenerates – #20 – Sachin Mahashi – Actor, Writer, Funny Guy, Good Guy, Guy

This week we welcome Sachin Mahashi to the podcast and also, officially, to the Desi Comedy team. Sachin is a talented actor and writer and all around friendly human and that’s why he fits right in on top of Raj. This episode was really fun for us.
