Episode 96 – Creating Fiction Podcasts with Mantra

Nadir Pop and Peter Pop are back with another episode as part of Podcast month.

30th of September is International Podcast Day and just like they celebrated Father’s Month in June this year, the Pop Duo are this month celebrating podcasts. They are going to speak to fellow podcasters and professionals from the podcasting world in India. Their next guest is Mantra

Mantra has done everything in the entertainment business that you could possibly think of – Started his career as an RJ then moved on to being host and Anchor. He has Acted in theatre, TV, Films… BUT… he’s come full circle by becoming a prominent fiction Producer, Director and Voice actor in podcasting. You may know him as the voice of Bhaskar Bose – and today he is a guest on POPS IN A POD!

Mantra spoke to us about:

  1. Fiction podcasting
  2. how radio was such an important medium in the country and how much power it had in terms of reaching the masses.
  3. The incredible growth of podcasts and why it too will gain prominence in the future
  4. While podcasters always consider SERIAL is the inspiration, Mantra had an interesting show for his inspiration… *hint hint*, it came from radio
  5. Interesting connection with Hozey Covaco and none other than Amitabh Bachchan
