India and the world by Sandip Roy

By Nic Stryker - Feb 24 2016

I’ve loved this podcast for about a year now. Sandip Roy is a renowned author and we are lucky to get to hear his dispatches. Every week a new story about life in India, told in English but with enough Hindi to give the audience some sense of the sound of the language. The themes of the stories are not just about India, however, but rather can be applied to the world. And the music and street noises we hear behind the voices really makes for a complete feast of a story. Thank you Mr. Roy and the staff at KALW!
