  1. The atmosphere of this podcast is really great. I always enjoy listening to you both. You do a great job keeping up with the recency of topics and giving a broader look on things (the “world” aspect).

  2. Very great podcast. As a born Indian I have to agree with you guys that the media only report about that horrible case, because that girl belonged to the middle class. Furthermore at the moment some politicians are talking about death penalty for this kind of crime. Some conservative even blame the girl and are recommending that Indian girls should only wear traditional clothes.
    With these examples I want to show it is still a long way for Indian girls in all classes to archive equality.
    I am sorry for my english it is not fluent. I grew up in Germany and my school english was really bad, with the help of some interesting podcasts, like yours I am trying to improve my English.
