Kicking off this pilot podcast series with my dear friend Priya, who co-directed and produced the incredible documentary Lovesick, a most unusual Indian love story. Boston-based Priya and co-producer and director Ann Kim SOLD OUT TWO showings of the film at the Boston Independent Film Festival recently!

Join me as we talk about this film, India, PBS Kids and much more!
