Talking about fun issues like dating and marriage, to the heavier ones like infertility and desi stigmas, The Woke Desi explores the topics South Asians have only whispered about until now, lending itself to a generation unafraid of being bold and fearless. Join hosts Annika (an author) and Nehal (an influencer) as they take a fun, unfiltered, thoughtful approach to all things Desi.
