Episode 7: Ashanti Omkar - Radio Presenter & South Indian Specialist

One accurate way to describe Ashanti Omkar is that she is a Tamil Superheroine. Her impressive biography includes being a Bollywood Entertainment Journalist, a member of the London Critics Circle and hosting the first ever South Indian radio show on the BBC Asian Network. 

In our inspiring chat Ashanti talks about her unconventional root into journalism, how she escaped a relationship where she was a victim of domestic abuse and how being an early adopter of tech has played a key role in her successes.

Plus Literary Expert Obie Matin is back with a book review in The Desi Woman Reading List. This month it's Shani Mootoo's Cereus Blooms at Night.

It's an epic episode and one that I hope you will enjoy!
