YUDDHA: The Indian Military History Podcast is returning on July 22!
The Indian subcontinent is about the size of Europe and is way more diverse and complicated - but how much do you actually know about its violent past? The land of Gandhi is also the land of the war-elephant, of gunpowder-wielding infantry, and of nuclear weapons that destroy everything in their wake.
In YUDDHA, my colleague Aditya Ramanathan and I explore the darker, blood-splattered side of India, beyond Bollywood and school textbooks. From the medieval invasions of Southeast Asia to the titanic clashes of the twentieth century, this is the military history of the subcontinent the way it was meant to be told.
YUDDHA started streaming in Jan-Feb 2020 and took a hiatus from May-July 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. New episodes will come out every fortnight from July 22nd, 2020, and will be available here as well as on every podcast app!
I will also be putting up show notes for previous episodes here: stay tuned.
