The Dog Days of Radiostan – Summer 2011

2011 July 13

The sun’s shining, it’s 80 degrees outside, and your fingers are itching for a mint julep. What better way to spend a lazy afternoon than on your porch or at the lakefront with Radiostan for company? If you haven’t podcast or streamed any shows lately, check out the latest episodes and music at

For Episode #26: Finding Your Bliss, I spoke with writer and actress Meera Simhan and director Shishir Kurup about their play Miss India America, a coming-of-age comedy about growing up in Southern California and finding your voice. Miss India America comes to Chicago July 14-17 at Theater Wit.

For Episode #25: Deep Space Utopia, I interviewed Pushkar Sharma and Sathya Sridharan, two of the three members of the thoroughly entertaining Brownstar Collective about their unique mix of theater, comedy, and verse. If you’re going to be in NYC on August 14, get tickets to their Unification show at Nuyorican Poets Cafe.

For Episode #24: A Messy Democracy, I talked to the new alderman of Chicago’s 47th Ward, Ameya Pawar, about youth, change, and running against a powerful political machine.

For Episode #23: Soul Food, I spoke with journalist, mom, and cookbook author Anupy Singla about home cooking, smelling like curry, and enticing kids to eat their veggies.  You can find her new book, The Indian Slow Cooker, at your local bookstore or online.

As always, email me at if you have questions, comments, or story ideas.

    Is Puskar smelling his fingers after a good chaat? That’s OK… I do that too…

    Love Radiostan! Keep it up!
