Launching Season Two of “Grand Tamasha”


After a brief summer hiatus, last week we launched Season Two of “Grand Tamasha,” a weekly podcast on Indian politics and policy co-produced by Carnegie and the Hindustan Times.

In our first episode of this season, I round-up the latest news from India with Sadanand Dhume of AEI and the Wall Street Journal and Tanvi Madan of Brookings. Tanvi, Sadanand, and I discuss the latest from Jammu and Kashmir, the slumping Indian economy, and Prime Minister Modi’s Independence Day address.

As an added bonus, we are also releasing a conversation I recorded with political scientist Christophe Jaffrelot back in June. Christophe reflects on the major implications of India’s 2019 general election.

You can find both episodes here. And you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes (or wherever you get your podcasts) so it automatically gets updated in your feed.
