What to Watch: Pop Culture that changed our lives

Most of us have that one movie or show that impacted us profoundly. Maybe you watched a documentary that turned you off meat forever or maybe you watched Whiplash and decided it is never too late to be a musical prodigy (it is). On today’s episode, our guests tell us what pop culture affected them deeply. First, Somya Lakhani and Sukrita Baruah join Neha Mathews to discuss why Fleabag is such a raunchy, fun and profound show about an unpleasant but endearing woman. Next, Siddhant Pandey lets us in on a deeply personal incident and how The Legend of Korra helped him brave it out. Last, Joshua Thomas talks about a movie he watched at the MAMI festival years ago, a movie that gave him a little perspective to his own life, the 1953 Japanese drama film Tokyo Story.
