In this podcast episode, Yashica Dutt provides a critical analysis of the Netflix show "Indian Matchmaking," offering multiple perspectives on the show and sharing her insights into concepts such as love, marriage, and personal preferences, including how these preferences are formed. Additionally, she highlights how her article on the same subject, published in the Atlantic in 2020, was appropriated by various publications without proper credit. Yashica also explores American society and politics, discussing how anti-blackness unites all non-black people globally. She examines how the consumption of black culture, style, and slang often objectifies black people as cultural objects, creating a contradiction in how society perceives blackness.
