Episode 7 - Nikhil

In Episode 7 we delve into the relatively ancient times of Singapore's improv history, into the actually ancient times of Singapore's medical hysteria history, and how the true treasure was friendship all along. Or not. This podcast has a real Moments Before Disaster feel about it, recorded as it was about 12 hours before Phase 2 Back to the Future Not-Quite-Circuit-Breaker, so check it out and as always, speak truth to power!
