    Dead Talk

    In the last episode of this series, Saima and Maleena talk about the power of talking. Grief can be one of the biggest tests to your mental health. So is there a ‘right’ way to cope with loss? They invite Rabbil to the café to hear his story about how he lost his Aunt and his subsequent struggles with depression. Hypnotherapist Dipti then joins them to give her professional opinion and chat about her own story of grief that inspired her career as a mental health practitioner. Saima opened Masala Wala cafe with her family, a small Pakistani restaurant that serves her mother’s recipes with love and charm. Out of nowhere, she was diagnosed with incurable lung cancer, before she even turned 30. Her life has been dramatically cut short - without treatment, she wouldn’t be here today. After dealing with her diagnosis, she talks frankly on how she’s getting over dying, so she can get on with living. Maleena, a Journalist and Producer, lost her brother when they were both teenagers, after a long battle with leukemia. As she became an adult, her father passed away suddenly and without warning. She shares openly what it’s like growing up with grief, the guilt of being left behind and how her identity as a British Asian was tested to its limits. Together, they bond over their unique perspectives on life and death and ponder the ultimate question - why?

    Welcome to Fresh To Death!

    Episode 6: Faitheism

    Raul considers the paradox of being an atheist Hindu, but the truth is hard to digest.Raul has always loved the old stories of Hinduism – the monkey gods, elephant heads, and frolicking milkmaids – but he’s not so sure what they actually mean to him, spiritually speaking. Over the series, Raul has come to see Hinduism in a whole new light. But he still needs to ask himself the biggest question yet. After all this reading, talking and meditating – does he believe in any of it?In his quest to find out whether Hinduism has to be a 24/7 commitment or more of a pick ‘n’ mix thing, Raul has a final heart-to-heart with the Pandit Satish K Sharma, reads some of the most outrageous stories in the Vedas and, well, experiences a purge of sorts…

    Episode 5: Meat Me Halfway

    Raul attempts to justify his diet – but will the Pandit have beef with the way he eats?In this episode, Raul weighs up the needs of the planet, the advice of the Hindu scriptures and the demands of his own stomach to figure out if it’s time to give up eating meat. He goes out for breakfast with his comedian friend Kiran Morjaria, entertains his audiences with a story about sausages and returns to the temple to chew it all over with Pandit Satish K Sharma.As a kid, when Raul went to the school dinner hall he’d have to wear a big sticker saying NO BEEF. When he was a teenager, he smuggled meatball marinaras into the house under the cover of darkness. But now, what with climate activists making us all feel guilty, he’s starting to think that Hindus had it right all along. But if humans weren’t supposed to eat meat…why do we find it so darn delicious?!

    Episode 4: He, She, Hijra

    Millennia before the West started reassessing the concept of gender, India had the Hijra.When researching for this podcast, Raul was surprised to discover that, in Hinduism, gender non-conformity is nothing new. The origin of the Hijra can be found in ancient Indian folk stories, but they are also a real community of transwomen that live in India today. Many people still believe that they are mystical beings and that they can confer blessings and curses.In this episode Raul investigates the complex subject of gender in Hinduism and in India. He speaks to his comedian friend Sindhu Vee, the trans activist Kalki Subramaniam and, of course, his ever-helpful guide Pandit Satish K Sharma.

    Episode 3: Smokin’ Shiva

    What’s the role of marijuana in Hinduism? Raul takes it upon himself to find out.When Raul was 19 years old, he received a surprising call from his mother. It was Maha Shivratri, she said, and officially the one day in the Hindu calendar that smoking marijuana was permitted. (Not by UK law, of course.) This got Raul thinking – maybe his lifestyle was more aligned with the Hindu faith than he thought?In this episode, Raul has a surprising conversation with the Pandit Satish K Sharma, he talks to Hannah Deacon about her battle to get access to medical marijuana for her son and introduces us to the notorious Spekky Rizwan.

    Episode 2: Let’s Talk About Sex Shakti

    Raul Kohli discovers that he owes the universe the debt of his body. No pressure then.When it comes to the birds and the bees, Raul was arranged a marriage before he was arranged a sex education lesson. Add to that the confusing depictions of romance in Bollywood films and the fact that Krishna married 18,000 milkmaids, it’s fair to say that there are some mixed messages going on. So, Raul sets out to discover if Hindus are as conservative about sex as his Mum wanted him to believe.In this episode, Raul chats to his comedian friend Anuvab Pal, seeks advice from his pandit, the Hindu scholar Satish K Sharma, bares all to his live audiences and reads the Kama Sutra cover to cover…for research purposes, ok?

    Welcome To Comic Sanskrit!

    Comedian Raul Kohli is on a quest to find out if his Hindu upbringing – which he drifted away from long ago – can help him find the answers to life’s big questions.With the help of a Pandit, a yogi, some Hindu comedian friends, a surprise Sikh and other wise gurus, Raul takes us on an adventure back into a 4000-year-old religion. It’s a world of monkey gods, Holy cows, X-rated temples and cannabis-laced milkshakes…and some sincere and serious introspection, of course. With any luck, you’ll be enlightened, entertained and shocked in equal measure.Growing up, religion always felt like a burden to Raul, rather than something that brought him happiness or clarity. Also, given the choice between delicious cheeseburgers and a seemingly complex and strict faith, Hinduism tended to lose out.But recently Raul’s been doing some reading and has started to think that perhaps he’s got Hinduism all wrong? In fact, thinking about it, does he even know what Hinduism actually is?Raul Kohli attempts to wrestle the beliefs of billions of people across thousands of years into the format of a comedy podcast series. Don’t worry – if he doesn’t manage it in this life, he can always try it again in the next.

    The Calm Down Industry

    On a day to day basis, Rahat and Faarea are equally stressed out. Faarea has noticed that all these products have popped up to counter this phenomenon, forming what she has christened The Calm Down Industry. She gives Rahat the hard sell on two of her favourites, mindfulness and CBD. We’ve all heard of mindfulness, but could there be something more sinister behind its promises? CBD, meanwhile, is an extract from the cannabis plant that’s said to calm you down and reduce pain and anxiety without getting you high. To try and convince Rahat of its benefits, Faarea takes her to The Feel Good Café, which specialises in CBD products, to chat to Idan Naor and Mark Halford and have a CBD- infused turmeric latte or two.

In the UK, many of the ingredients found in these skin-lightening products are toxic and therefore illegal. But the industry is booming! In 2017, it was raking in £3.4 billion and is set to almost double by 2027. Why are these market regulations not working? Why is there still pressure on men and women the world over to be fair? Faarea pops up to Birmingham to chat with Somia R. Bibi, a PhD student doing pioneering research into the skin-lightening industry, and comes back with a bottle or two...
