#12 – Video Games: Fazool Waste of Time?


In 2018, the Video gaming industry is on track to hit 138 billion dollars of global revenue ,according to a Market FOrecast report form Newzoo. The same research forecasts this global revenue to explode more and more each year, projecting 180 billion by 2021. Compare this to the global TV & video revenue, and you’ll find that there is a strong chance of the gaming industry to overtake TV & films across the world, opening up all sorts of opportunities in a realm that many adults, especially desi adults, haven’t taken seriously. Today’s 2 guests are about to argue that this is going to change. our first guest is new, she goes by the online nickname Saf, and she’s a gaming enthusiast living in the U.S. Our second guest is Hassan, who has joined some of our previous episodes, and is a competitive player himself.

#3 – Best age to get married?

In this episode we go deep into the massive subject that is marriage, specifically in the context of Pakistani/desi culture, and to help us answer a specific question: is there a ‘perfect age’ to get married? Why do more singles want to wait before getting married now? Is getting married early really a ‘bad thing’ or ‘wasting your 20s’? How can you deal with parents that pressure you into marriage? Come listen to our chatter around this ocean of a subject.

#2 – Depression, Mental Illness, and Jinns

Today we talk to Myra (from New York) and Hassan (from Dubai). Myra, Hassan and I are going to scrape the surface on a hard-hitting topic: depression and mental illness among the Pakistani and South Asian communities. We know we will not be able to solve any problems with this episode, but hoping it can start a much-needed discussion.
