VoK 623: Deadwood Season 3


The legendary Al Swearigen

A podcast episode is never late. It arrives precisely when it means to. And so with characteristic timeliness, VOK releases its review of the HBO series Deadwood’s third and final season a mere fourteen years after its initial release. Join Dana, Michael, Thomas and Bina for a spoiler-filled discussion of plot and character. Then join us for an uncharacteristically long after show where we discuss the constitutional politics of the USA and UK.

VoK 621: Indian Matchmaking (Netflix)


Hey, you single? Join Michal (inkasrain), Adam (drownedsnow), Tanja (Scilens), and Matt (Varley) as we discuss Netflix’s Indian Matchmaking, the reality dating sensation that’s sweeping several nations. Who’s our favorite match candidate? Why do people get married anyway? Would we go to a face reader? What’s up with the molecular gastronomy? And will Vyasar hang out with us, pleeeeease?

In the aftershow, we’re joined by Bina007 to go in-depth on her take on the series, as well as Indian culture, diaspora, and the role that matchmaking plays in Indian life around the world.

Music: Marrakesh Market by Parry Music 
(We note that Marrakesh is in Morocco, not India, but this music was used in the show and it slaps.)
