Parent Talk – Episode 18: The Joy of Dance

headphonesParent Talk is a radio show that I’ve been doing since October 2011 on Radio Zindagi 1550 AM in the SF Bay Area. It is a show sponsored by the India Community Center in Milpitas, to whom I am truly grateful for the opportunity.

In true desi style, it’s taken 6 months to get my act together and get the mp3 of the show online! Thanks to my friends and listeners for prodding me to get it done. I’ll be putting up previous shows as well; hopefully, it won’t take me 6 months to upload the rest!

Episode 18: The Joy of Dance

Guests: Lekshmi Shaiju – Bharatanatyam dancer and teacher. Ishika Seth, one of the principal dancers of the Mona Khan dance company. Kavitha Aravindhan and Pallavi Rao, high-schoolers and dancers with the Xpressions dance company.

Here is the podcast. The sound quality is acceptable but the transitions between the breaks I take on the show may be a tad rough. I have removed all the ads and the songs (I think!) to provide a cleaner experience but I am new to Audacity (a mp3 editing program) and feel like I’ve been using an axe instead of a scalpel to make the cuts. Also, exporting an mp3 from Audacity forced me to reduce the bit rate to make the size of the resultant file small enough.

The theme music you hear at the beginning of the show has been composed by my son Naren.
