Pop feminism

“Mujhe woh haseen dard de do, jise aaj ke baad main kisi doosre ke saath na baant sakun.” This cheesy line from the movie Prem Aggan is the start of what goes on to be a fun, witty podcast about the fascination about Valentine’s Day and how V-Day should be called a U-Day

“Mujhe woh haseen dard de do, jise aaj ke baad main kisi doosre ke saath na baant sakun.” This cheesy line from the movie Prem Aggan is the start of what goes on to be a fun, witty podcast about the fascination about Valentine’s Day and how V-Day should be called a U-Day.



Welcome to Chuski Pop, a desi podcast starring Sweety and Pappu, ‘two desi women riding the fourth wave of feminism in their salwar kameez and golden heels’. Sweety is a graphic designer and Pappu, a copywriter. Their podcast, launched in 2015, has a new episode releasing every second week and has 27 episodes out already.



Each podcast starts with a cheesy, ridiculous line from a Hindi film. It lasts for about an hour or longer, and usually sticks to one topic, but the two women talk about anything that happened through the week. The tone is conversational, with a few over-the-top reactions thrown in for effect. They talk about eating their ‘shiny, glossy candy toes’, make-up, explain mansplaining, how not to be a cool girl, social media detoxes, body positivity and finding like-minded girlfriends to hang out with.



They’ve even introduced Bhindi Awards (showing the ladies’ finger to patriarchal society) given to women who celebrate being themselves. Past awards gave gone to MIA, Beyonce, Harnaam Kaur and Lily Singh. Their 19th episode was a collaborative one, with fellow desi podcasters Chai Tea Party.
