Browncast Episode 97: Extraction!

Another BP Podcast is up. You can listen on LibsynAppleSpotify,  and Stitcher (and a variety of other platforms). Probably the easiest way to keep up with the podcast since we don’t have a regular schedule is to subscribe to one of the links above!

Since we started the Brown Pundits Browncast we’ve seen significant listener growth. This is really a hobby and labor of love, so I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. Though it’s by the Brown Pundits, the topic isn’t always “brown.” That being said, there is a significant number of listeners in India (especially with the topic is more Indocentric).

Due to the costs of both recording software and storage space, I would appreciate if you could also support the podcast as a patron. The primary benefit now is that you get the podcasts considerably earlier than everyone else. It also compensates me for my admittedly mediocre editing (I’m a data scientist/geneticist). If we get more patrons I have reached out to have someone professional edit…but really we don’t have the funds now.

If you can’t give (in these times may cannot!), I would appreciate more positive reviews!

In this episode, I talk to my friend Sagar about the film Extraction, with Chris Hemsworth. It’s a short podcast, but fun and casual if you want to take a break from coronavirus (though I do ask Sagar about coronavirus in Finland).

Enjoyed the podcast.

I think in terms of opportunity lost, i guess the biggest loss was the lack of Bangladeshi actors. They would have taken care of some of the accent/diction/language issues. One of the reason y non Bengali speakers can understand what the actors are saying is because all the Bangladeshi guys are being played by hindi speakers.

I disagree that they are even trying a West Bengali vs East Bengali thing. The actors were just trying to mimic how a non Bengali would speak in Bengali, thats it. This is exactly how i would speak in Bengali.

Its strange than there has been no/less Bangladeshi talent in Bollywood. I guess perhaps some Bangladeshi bands have provided music, dont know the scene in W.Bengal movie industry. Contrast this to success of Pakistani/Nepali/Lankan actors and musicians have got in Bollywood. Even Bengalis from Assam have got some screen time.

Isn’t it a function of hindi/urdu fluency?

Not sure. I mean any Bangladeshi would face the same issues which a West Bengali would have. That hasn;t stopped Bengali talent in Bollywood. I guess with time perhaps there will be more.
