    1. I look forward to hearing about specific topics related to South Asia (even south east asia with it’s indic cultural influences).

      I have a topic suggestion… Islands

      Sri Lanka, Laccadives, Maldives, Andamans, Nicobar, Mauritius, Reunion, Trinidad Tobago, etc. all are south asian or have substantial south asian populations.

      My muddled vision of the podcast would to find somebody actually from one of those islands and have a question/answer interview on the people, life and culture there. Sbarrkum you could be up first for Sri Lanka….

      Maybe that wasn’t the plan for the podcast, but you’re welcome if it is 😉

  1. This is a great idea! I would love to hear podcasts related to South Asia topics (even south east asia with it’s indic cultural influences).

    I have a suggestion… Islands

    Sri Lanka, Laccadives, Maldives, Andamans, Nicobar, Mauritius, Reunion, Trinidad Tobago, etc. all are south asian or have substantial south asian populations with unique histories.

    Looking forward to it and very witty btw, browncast(e), lol!

    1. Not a bad idea; one thing is that there is a lack of knowledge among these nations, and even among states; sbarkkum can discuss, among other things re: SL:
      1. Sinhala/Tamil DNA and origin
      2. The different kind of Tamils
      3. Tamil Muslims aka Moors
      4. The “Bhumiputra” policy and alienation of college graduated
      5. Common disease issues such as chronic kidney; and differences as in diabetes
      6. dictatorial presidents and prime ministers

    2. Would love to hear more about my people. We Indo-Caribbeans tend to be overlooked when it comes to discussions about the diaspora in my opinion.

      1. Yes. Please Indo Carib history i feel is less covered than south east Asia. I would love more Indo Carib as well as others like them. South African, suriname , Mauritius etc

  2. Exciting! May be to build up anticipation you could tease us with some of the topics you intend to cover on the podcast and what guests (if any) you might have…

      1. “We need to get Jaggu!”
        +1008

        1st episode:
        Collegial nuanced sharing of the minds between Jagguji and Kabirji on human flourishing.

        2nd episode:
        Omer Aziz and Kabirji on moral clarity, universalist norms, meta-narratives and how to develop a consistent universalist philosophy of all things–including how to integrate liberalism and post modernism with Islam.
        https://samharris.org/podcasts/the-best-podcast-ever/

        3rd episode:
        Kabirji musical performance where Kabirji explains the deeper meanings of music and poetics after every song. I look forward to listening to this episode.

        In general Jagguji would be an excellent host and facilitator of the show for many episodes.

  3. And then Jagguji can interview Ben Shapiro:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=179&v=PwFmrI5QQFI

    After this Jagguji can interview James Lindsay, Peter Boghassian and Helen Pluckrose. They recently wrote a bunch of junk “academic articles”; which were published in many of the most prestigious post modernist journals. One of them was a feminist version of Mein Kampf. It read:

    “Feminism which foregrounds individual choice, responsibility, female agency, and strength can be countered by a feminism which unifies in solidarity around the victimhood of the most marginalized women in society.”

    The paper was based on a rewriting of Chapter 12 of Volume I of Mein Kampf, in which Hitler lays out a multi-point plan why the Nazi Party was needed and what it required of its members.

    The paper was accepted after being peer-reviewed by Affilia: Journal of Women and Social Work, which analyzes gender inequality.

    The co-editor in chief of Affilia wrote: “Reviewers are supportive of the work and noted its potential to generate important dialogue for social workers and feminist scholars.”

  4. I, for one, eagerly await. Do hope you don’t end up doing mostly genetics (I did like Razib’s writing on that, but in modest doses). Would like to hear about the polities not from Delhi shortly before and during Muslim domination.

    1. I agree completely.

      However, genetics can be incorporated with related topics depending on the subject. For example ancient history can be combined with genetics since scholars of ancient history aren’t knowledgeable about genetics.

  5. Can you interview Abhijit Chavda and Kushal Mehra?:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNoiaXOI8GE
    Abhijit claimed that there is a haploid Arya gene that dates from 15,000 years ago (or 600 generations ago?)? What is he speaking about?

    I regard Kushal Mehra as one of the world’s greatest thought leader in the global atheist movement along with Sam Harris and Steven Pinker.

    Kushal describes himself as a Chaarvaaka atheist Hindu.

        1. I am sure you saw my article on Kailasha and Mount Soma.

          Mount Soma might be in Siberia or the Urals. Mount Soma is where the following come from:
          —Illa (multi-sexual gender fluid daughter of Manu)
          —her son with Mercury (son of Soma) Pururavas
          —Pururavas and Urvashi’s progeny
          —Soma Vamsha, also called Chandra Vamsha

          The Arya people in the Mahabharata and ever since (including today) are Soma Vamsha.

          Ramayana is believed to take place before the Soma Vamsha comes. At that time the Arya people were Surya Vamsha.

          The following are likely a reference to some non homo-sapien substrate:
          —Manu,
          —Manu’s “daughter” Illa
          —Mercury (associated with planet Mercury)
          —Mercury’s dad Soma/Chandra/Indu (associated with the Moon and the mysterious Mount Soma) (son of Atri & Anasuya, brother of Durvasa, brother of Dattatreya)
          —Urvashi

          It would match the historical narrative stories that Soma Vamsha comes from the far north around 15,000 years ago. Although I don’t know what specific modern mountain Mount Soma, Mount Chandra, or Mount Indu refers to.

          I think it is a coincidence that Indus and Indu sound similar. Because Indus is probably named after the Sindhu river and Hindu.

          1. Hello AnAn Sir,

      1. I would be very interested to know the oldest age of R1a. From my sources the oldest was identified in Serbia (12000 years). Siberian (Don, Dnyestar, Ural) is about 500 years older than the first Aryan expedition to Hindustan. It means about 4500-4800 years old. It would be also good to know the R1a age in India (in my readings about 3850 years old). I don’t mind to be wrong but I hope that finally someone will answer these (to my perception) simple questions.

      1. I could easily follow. Abhijit Chavda’s microphone was not working well.

        I would love to e-mail your observations to Kushal Mehra if possible.

  6. As an interesting aside:
    —Soma/Chandra/Indu is an amsha avataara of Brahma
    —brother Durvasa is an amsha avataara of Shiva or Rudra or Shankara or Hara or Shambhu or Pashupati or Nataraja or Mahesha or Maheshwara
    —brother Dattatreya is amsha avataara of Vishnu or Hari or Narayana; Dattatreya is also an amsha avataara of Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu

    Atri, mind son of Brahma, one of the saptarishi (7 great sages), husband of Anasuya and father of the above trinity of brothers refers to a star in the Big Dipper. Perhaps a reference to some entity that was believed to have come from the direction of the star a long time ago.

    Neither Atri, Anasuya or their famous three sons are regarded as humans in the ancient scriptures . . . albeit they can communicate and interact with humans. They also live thousands of years and many scores of human generations . . . which strongly suggest they can’t be human.
