Red Hot Chilli Writers

By RED HOT CHILLI WRITERS

Six British Asian writers talk books, writing, the creative arts, pop culture, risqué humour and Big Fat Asian weddings. Insightful, funny, packed with big name interviews, advice, on-air-therapy and lashings of cultural anarchy they dare to explore the parts other podcasts cannot reach. Featuring Vaseem Khan, Abir Mukherjee, Ayisha Malik, Amit Dhand, Imran Mahmood and Alex Khan. Also featuring cameos by Abir’s Mum. Tune in monthly. For non-white and white people. Just to be clear.
