MikeyPod 308 | Podcaster and Video Producer Maneetpaul Singh

In what might be the most unique path toward inviting a guest to be on the podcast, I first ran across Maneetpaul Singh‘s tech YouTube channel while I was researching a new office chair at the beginning of the pandemic. His review convinced me of my new chair (Autonomous Ergo Chair 2, if you’re curious) and to subscribe to his channel. When I heard about his new podcast, The Sikh Influence, and its mission to highlight Sikhs from around the world who are doing what they love, I knew he’d be a perfect guest for the show!
