The first time the Writer and the Geek sat together to record was back in 2015. It was for a self-improvement (supposedly) podcast hosted by the Geek. Unfortunately (or fortunately), the episode featuring the Writer became its last and was never aired.

Who are we?

Shankar is a writer by profession who considers himself to be an excellent listener, but talks more. No filter, whatsoever. Rambles at Rambling Joint.

Vishnu is a software engineer by profession who believes he can pull off standup, perhaps not. Sarcastic, not always. Braindump at vp’s café.

We are two brothers who love having late night conversations on science, history, and technology. And no, we are not twins!

What is our purpose?

Fast forward three years, the Geek suggested the idea of documenting these livingroom conversations and sharing it with the world. The Writer agreed, reluctantly. And here we are. We have just closed a year of pocasting and have listeners across six continents, looking at you Antartica!

We aim to empower you by making you knowledgeable about things you would never research on, otherwise. Like seriously, who would spend hours researching the history of toothbrushes? :unamused:

We would like our listeners to find something that’s interesting in our catalogue of episodes which might spark a little interest to look just a little bit more into these simple and complicated things in life. Who knows, you might just impress the crowd in the next party.

Vishnu was also interviewed by Shannon Hernandez, The Shan Man from 98 KUPD-FM, Arizona. The Shan Man is a radio broadcaster, podcaster and podcast producer with over 18 years of radio experience. Interview was at around 2:30 am, thanks to time difference, hence Vishnu looks doped! Give it a watch.
