About Us

Rarely do we witness regions as instrumental in shaping the cultural history of our world as South and Southeast Asia. The ScholarlySpark podcast allows us to immerse ourselves in the vast, exquisite lands of South and Southeast Asia by exposing us to the rich, breathtaking landscapes of the two regions. We’re taken on a journey in which we are exposed to an electrifying fusion of changing futuristic technological transformation, alarming economic dilemmas, political climates, and rich cultural explosions. From the capitalistic changes occurring in Thailand’s economy to the rampant migration that has taken ahold of South Asia, he gives us an insider’s view of two of the world’s most unpredictable, variable regions.On the show we invite you to explore the hidden gems of South Asia in fun and easy-to-understand episodes led by our expert host, Kamal Narayanan. Whether you want to escape into another world or are curious to learn fascinating details about a new culture, we’ll walk you through the many layers of South Asia. How is Nepal setting a new standard for smart cities? What’s the topography like in Bhutan? What’s the region’s most popular indigenous cuisine? We’ll uncover these topics, unusual trends, under-the-radar facts, and much more. Experts in South Asian studies will pop by occasionally to share their stories and insight on a variety of subjects and will challenge you to look at the world from another perspective. We want to share the secrets, complexities, people, and places that make South Asia special and we’re excited you’re here to find out.
