In the seventh episode of our ‘Nothing In Particular (NIP)’ podcast, we start off by talking about the racist subtexts in drop-down menus of Indian matrimony websites, and the things that people did with horses during the 14th century. Then, we keep it together and discuss hobbies.
Is a hobby supposed to be a gateway into a more meaningful activity? Or just something to stop you from becoming homicidal? We offer some tips to help you find one that can be sustainable. And find out which exhilarating hobby helped in spreading camaraderie, during the 80s, in South India.
The episode also features new music by Hari Ram Narayanan.

NIP is a weekly podcast hosted by Shuveb Hussain and me. We pick vague topics and then, talk about (no prizes for guessing) nothing in particular. But I am sure that there is something in there for you. And you. And especially you there – looking as though someone just ran over your puppy. This one is for you. I hope that we can be a part of your car rides, water-cooler conversations, lunchtime discourses and late-evening introspections. Please do listen, subscribe to us on iTunes or on any of the Android-based podcast apps, and share it with anyone who may be interested.
Remember dear children – if it is worth setting aside time for, it is probably worth fighting for too.
