CONTENT WARNING: This episode involves discussion of sexual assault

Aditi Mittal is a stand up comedian with a massive following in her native India. She's outspoken and hilarious about her politics and the plight of women under patriarchy.

In this conversation Aditi tells me why for her "breathing is a political act", the repression in Indian society, how the caste system works, the country's recent rightward shift under the leadership of Narendra Modi and what it's like to live in a country of MORE THAN ONE BILLION PEOPLE.
