It's Independence day and it's brand new Cock & Bull day as well! Stand-up comic and co-host of the podcast 'How to Citizen' Shreyas Manohar joins Cyrus and Abbas and they start off by recollecting their most horrible stand-up stories. The 3 of them then discuss Sonia Gandhi's return as Congress chief, the Haryana CM's 'Kashmiri women' jibe and whether the outrage is political correctness gone haywire. In the second half they talk about the Jeffery Epstein case, Zomato executives on strike in West Bengal and Mumbai bidding adieu to RK studios.
