Newslaundry Podcast (the awful and awesome)

Deepanjana Pal wasn't here but that didn't deter Rajyasree
Sen from bringing you the next episode of Awful and Awesome,
(Abhinandan Sekhri came to the rescue!). "Befikre" has 23 kisses
taking place in it; Priyanka Chopra has apologised for her infamous
'traveler' t-shirt; Bigg Boss has 'commoners' this season; and what's
in a (sur)name? (Hint: patriarchy). Listen to Episode 14 and broaden your entertainment wisdom. Bonus- Abhinandan Sekhri explains why Shiv Sena cannot survive in Delhi. Also, there’s a fun quiz question at the end. Write to us at with your answers and comments.

This week, Deepanjana Pal and Rajyasree Sen leapfrog from critically-acclaimed documentary, Placebo, to the pulpy Freaky Ali.

There’s little agreement between the two of them on the film front, but when it comes to the new music released this week, there’s complete consensus. Find out what they have to say about the “Bolo Har Har” from Shivaay and the first new release from Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. And then there were the advertisements. Sen and Pal have a lot to say about the Mia, Adidas Odds and Amazon’s #MomBeAGirlAgain campaigns. As always, there’s a question at the end of the show. Listen up, and send us your comments and answers to
