  • S3 EP2:
    In this episode I, Meera Kumar, am chatting to Surya - BBC Music's Introducing Artist of 2018.

    (Timestamps are included below, so you can skip to the part of the episode that interests you most!)

    6.48 University sex culture

    12.46 Disrespect towards women in music, and not singing about a lifestyle you don’t actually lead, telling a story (of something you haven’t experienced) and creative license

    16.14 Surya’s album analysis. He tells a story of sexual harassment, intimacy issues and self hatred.

    18.10 Sex in cars and commitment

    22.47 Not realising your goals despite being ambitious, and surrounding yourself with like-minded people

    MY FAVOURITE PART OF THE EPISODE

    29.43 Being born in India and seeing brown faces in every industry. Coming to England at 10 years old, and the differences between cultures. Going from not being a minority in India to being a minority in the UK.

    34.14 The treatment of Indian immigrants by British Indians.

    40.47 Networking and collaborating with other creatives on your level. How Jamie Foxx got into Diddy’s parties, and his first song with Kanye West. (The best story ever. To listen to it from the horse’s mouth, go to The Joe Rogan Experience podcast with Jamie Foxx).

    47.18 Beatboxing. Hear Surya’s mad skills, and my very questionable attempts to drop a beat.

  • S2E12: On this episode of MK on the Mic, I am talking all about meritocracy, and diversity quotas. Topics include:

    - What is meritocracy?
    - Meritocracy does not mean hiring ethnic minorities who are less qualified for the job
    - Are diversity quotas good for a company?
    - We do not have a true meritocracy, otherwise workplaces would naturally represent the diversity of society
    ...and more!

  • S2E11: On this episode of MK on the Mic, I am talking about Liam Neeson’s controversial interview and the most common reactions to what he said. He admitted that, when his friend was allegedly raped by a black man, he spent a week walking around with a weapon looking for any black person to kill. Topics include:

    - Was this Liam Neeson situation nothing to do with race?
    - Did Liam Neeson come to a ‘fork in the road’ and choose the good option?
    - Was Liam Neeson brave and honest for coming forward with his story?
    - Did Liam Neeson realise what he said was wrong?
    - The Rosewood Massacre of 1923
    - Trayvon Martin and racial profiling
    - The social implications of Liam Neeson’s comments

    This podcast was recorded on Wednesday 6th February; so far Liam Neeson’s red carpet event has been cancelled. Hopefully more will be done.
