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!
I’m so excited to share this conversation with Maneetpaul where we cover his creative work with podcasting and video production, basics of Sikhi, and how he uses his work to bring people together!
Definitely check out the documentary They Called Me Osama, which Maneetpaul produced.
To learn more about Sikhi check out the Basics of Sikhi YouTube channel.
Here’s the artivism panel discussion tonight I mentioned at the top of the show.
This podcast is powered by my subscribers on Patreon who, in addition to the warm feeling they get from co-creating with me, get lots of sweet perks including bonus podcast episodes, free downloads, zines, and more!
