Are You Indian? Author Sanjit Singh aka Bad Swami talks to Upodcast

Sometimes you come across a book that comes so close to your personal experiences growing up that it feels like the author has been following you your entire life in a Truman show kinda way. But rarely is there a book that combines that personal journey for Asians with such humor and insight.

Sanjit Singh, who a lot of people might know his from his twitter alias Bad Swami or comedy website, has just written “Are You Indian? A Humorous Guide to Growing Up Indian in America” and he was our guest on this episode of Upodcast chatting to us about growing up as an Asian kid in America and how it differs from growing up in Europe, how he came about writing his book and a host of other topics in this hilarious yet soul searching chat.

 

You can head over on to amazon or his website to see some of the amazing reviews he has been getting, and his book is definitely a strong recommend by the Upodcast team.

Duelity: An Animated history of the world (both sides)

There are many theories about how our world started(one of which is that we are half-Cylon?). Here is an amazing prize winning animated short by graphic design artist Ryan Uhrich.

What he’s done is juxtapose two versions of how life started the Darwinian theory and the classic religious one but he’s switched the language on us.

The summary on the website is:

Duelity is a split-screen animation that tells both sides of the story of Earth’s origins in a dizzying and provocative journey through the history and language that marks human thought.
