In this episode, host Snigdha Sharma is joined by Newslaundry’s Ayan Sharma and Hameeda Syed.

Hameeda begins the podcast with a discussion on her extensive report on Narendra Modi’s redevelopment plans for Delhi’s Central Vista. She talks about various aspects of the project, including its cost, clearances, public consultation, aesthetic, and why it's even necessary. Ayan talks about his report on Prag News, an Assamese news channel that forced one of its pregnant employees to quit, saying they needed “agile people” at the workplace.

The trio also discuss the layoffs at the Telegraph, and the glaring contrast in how the newspaper covered the Covid-19 response by the Centre and the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government.

This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.
