004 Raising the standards for Indian YouTubers - Ayush Dinker
My guest today is a filmmaker from Delhi whose films are a direct window to stories from various corners of India. Hunting for answers to some of life’s larger questions, his films pack in a healthy dose of self-reflection. To find these answers, he travels far and wide throughout the country, and his work is what I show people around the world when they ask me about India. He’s been humbly raising the standards for Youtubers in India, and guess what, he’s only getting started! Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I present to you, Ayush Dinker. Some of the things we discuss in this episode: Solo travel vs Travelling with company The effect of extensive travel on our psychology Is it worth living in big cities anymore? Balancing politics & filmmaking in Kashmir Animal sacrifice - Right or Wrong? Should you upload to YouTube on a committed schedule? Where does the travel bug come from? Our childhood? Premiere Pro vs Final Cut Pro (The classic filmmakers’ debate) Mental tricks to maintaining fitness as a filmmaker Should you quit your job to pursue your dreams?

003 We just invented “Death Meditation”? - Nivedan Nayak
My next guest is a LA based musician whose music is as vivid as his personality. I caught him just in time for his latest release on Spotify called “Bounce”. He produces a surprising variety of music - from latin bangers, to dark hip-hop beats, to lofi - he cranks it all out, and does it real good! He’s also had a number of collaborations, and its a treat to watch his videos. When he’s not making music, he’s dancing like no one’s watching! Thankfully, we get to watch it all on instagram. Fair warning, you’ll get addicted to his posts, he brings so much joy into them! As if that wasn’t enough, he’s a math tutor too. Probably the coolest math tutor in town! He’s continually exposing himself to new influences, and his latest muses are African and Indian beats. With a bunch of new music lined up for release, I wanted to talk to him about how he pulls it all off! Enjoy my conversation with Nivedan Nayak. Some of the things we talk about on this episode: The secret of being in a good place in life. From being a tech-recruiter to being a full-time musician. Growing up Indian in America, shunning your identity and then embracing it in a big way. Tension with parents because of career choices, and then dancing with them! Daily practice and the magic that unfolds with consistency. How to juggle between a million passions at once! Really deep discussions about thinking and overthinking while creating. Know this before adopting and raising a dog. Having a consistent brand as an artist - How important is it? "Death Meditation". Journaling can change your life. Stories of collaboration with other artists. The science behind cultivating habits. The mechanics of publishing music on Spotify. What does Rick Rubin do with big artists like Kanye West, Jay-Z, System of A Down etc. Enjoy Holocene Has Ended!

002 The Transformative Power of Daily Personal Projects - Rohan Puri
My next guest is a Pune-based designer whose work immediately stands out from anything you’ve seen before. With his “almost” daily poster project called Fat.Voyazio on instagram, he experiments with a style thats a mix of grunge, typography, chaos and emotion - all built around deeply personal messages from him. And when you visit his instagram page, you’ll see that the work resonates with thousands of people. I do have to apologize in advance for the poor audio quality on my side. I was testing a new headset, which obviously failed to perform. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll find something valuable from this engineer-turned-designer. Please enjoy my conversation with the brilliantly talented, Rohan Puri. Some of the things we talk about in this episode: How to deal with sadness (We started off pretty intense 🙂). Meeting David Carson and getting life-changing advice from him. Graphic Design is nothing without emotion. Convention vs Chaos. From being a software engineer to becoming a professional designer, without any design education. How to come up with your own style. Some of our favourite fonts. Self-initiated projects have the power to change our lives. In case you missed it, here's the link to Rohan's instagram page: fat.voyazio and fatmachin3

001 This photographer sleeps with his photographs! - Vinod Babu
Based out of Hyderabad, Vinod captures raw moments from the lives of people engrossed in rituals, survival and social crises like you’ve never seen before. He has exhibited both in India and abroad, and has been published in more magazines than I can recount here.

He is the winner of the Toto Photography Award 2019 and is currently working on personal projects alongside assignments with Reuters. Some of the things we talk about in this episode are: The challenges and emotional effects of photographing one of the worst droughts. Transitioning from being an engineer to a photographer - and the family pressures because of it. Being a misfit in school, and picking up the camera to express Courage - Confidence - Curiousity - Camera! Why some of us just can’t be press photographers. Working with Reuters. Animals as subjects of suffering. Vinod’s minimal editing process. Obsession with art - Vinod sleeps with his photographs! Check out Vinod's work on www.vinodbabu.com
