ReDiscover: Agra beyond the Taj 

 

The city of Agra is rather synonymous to the iconic Taj Mahal and a touristy visit to the mausoleum built for Mumtaz Mahal, usually tends to complete a trip to Agra. 

However, travel geniuses Ambika and Hoshner wander off to the less traveled roads and alleys to understand the stories behind the historical structures and heritage of the city, way beyond the Taj. 

Here is how you can completely crack exploring Agra!

What we've been upto: January 2017

New year, new shows! 

We are only in the beginning of 2017 and we've already launched 4 new shows that we are super proud of. Get ready for a list! 

The Seen and the Unseen

As someone who doesn't fully understand some of India's policies, always aims to find multiple opinions on it and then gives up and just reads tweets, this podcast is perfect. Journalist Amit Varma takes on public policies and explains the seen and the unseen affects of it. 

Keeping It Queer

Hosted by our very own producer, Navin Noronha, Keeping It Queer or KIQ as we say (on internal Slack channels, I mean) chronicles the life and journey of India's LGBTQ community. We've had incredible guests so far who've shared stories of their first love, the struggles they faced to come out and what it's all meant to them (I may have teared up a couple of times during editing). 

My Neighbour, Zuckerberg

Entrepreneurs talk to entrepreneurs to discuss entrepreneur stuff. Hosted by Munaf Kapadia (of the Bohri Kitchen) and Nabeel Merchant (of Fixy), My Neighbour, Zuckerberg traces stories of struggle, adventure and creativity and find out what makes them who they are today. One month in and I've learned so much already! 

IVM Likes

This one may or maybe not be my favourite. Every week, we are rounding up our staff to bring their personal pop culture recommendations and general chit chat about tv shows, movies and books.
