Let's face it, we're all in a lockdown itching to video call our long-distant best friends to talk about anything and everything under the sun. Honestly, we don't know if the House Party app is enough to live you "Sex and the city" life with your BFFs during this pandemic. So here we are, two best friends, talking about things that matter to us - things that we discuss over drinks when we're not locked in our houses far away from each other.
Love is a strange thing and right now, it's an even stranger thing. Hence, the name you see. But there's no fear when your Indo-German best friends are here! Listen to this episode to get some tips on what questions to ask to really get to know a stranger during this time if you want to pave your way to love with them. See us romancing each other on this episode just for you, strangers and lovers!
In this episode, you'll finally find the Indian in Anna and a love guru in Diksha haha! Jokes aside, why this podcast is important is because this conversation about the lockdown is as raw as it can get. Weight gain or mental pain? Right or the wrong time to date or fall in love? Productivity contest or cheering up mechanism? - you'll find all of these answers and more on this episode.
This is also our first Indo-German episode and we have a special guest for you who has successfully aced the productivity contest during the toughest time of our lives.
We have tried to answer most of your questions from our social media, but if we missed something, please do send us a voice message asking that question again and we shall answer it on our next episode!
Who are we? Why you must listen to us to get through this lockdown? And a teaser of our cute relationship and our fun-filled recordings - you'll find all of that in this trailer. In the hope of inspiring you one day to launch your own podcast!
Anna and I grew up as tomboys for some reason and this episode is coming straight from the heart. We haven't made any edits at all, this is as raw as 'Originally Mistaken' can get. We hope in the future too we can just keep serving you our raw best-friend conversations on subjects that matter. Hopefully, this will give you some perspective on what's happening in the country right now related to the #BoisLockerRoom incident.
Please do send us messages on Instagram at @originallymistaken and voice messages here on Anchor so we know exactly what kind of conversation we can have that will make this lockdown a bit less intolerable.
Let's pledge to talk about menstruation more openly, because seriously, it's a thing. Be it in Germany or India or any part of the world - without those painful 3-4 or more days every month, we'll have no babies to find cute and make memes out of. So come on, tell us your first period stories through voice messages? And we may pick some of your messages to add to our future episodes!
Also, don't forget to follow us on Instagram at @originallymistaken - we'd love to know what you'd like us to talk about next. Anything you'd like to share with your best friend in another corner of the city, world, or planet?
Let's talk period. Of course, our cycles are synced and we both just had our second menstrual cycle during this lockdown - it made us realize many things, the major one being that it's a great time to turn your humble selves towards that menstrual cup.
P.S - Ignore the technical errors and focus on our long-distance emotions over a phonecall. Podcast mics are sold out worldwide btw!
