Bollywood movies have really taken off in the U.S. So why not and Indian-America podcast? Masala Jones, an original scripted comedy created by Venk Potula (pictured) and Leland Frankel, has begun its first season on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.
The show takes listeners into the “hilariously outrageous world of porn.” When naive med school drop-out Samar Rajamouli decides to pursue his secret dream of becoming an adult film actor, he discovers an industry filled with peculiar customs, idiosyncratic characters, and unfortunately familiar prejudices. As if that wasn’t enough, he also finds himself playing referee for his immigrant parents as their marriage threatens to fall apart.
Starring Venk Potula (VEEP, Wild N’ Out) and Esther Ku (Girl Code, Last Comic Standing).
Masala Jones is among the first Asian-American scripted podcasts, and touches on themes of race, representation, and sex positivity — always with a dose of twisted humor. It’s the perfect narrative podcast for fans of Insecure, Fresh Off The Boat, and Master of None.
