Awful and Awesome Ep 298: M3GAN, Succession S4, Boris Becker documentary

The pop culture podcast that isn’t afraid to pop the bubble.

WrittenBy:NL Team

While talking about Boom! Boom! Boris Becker vs The World:

Abhijeet: When you go to Wimbledon, at the main entrance, there are two lines from Rudyard Kipling's poem If. They go, “If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat the two imposters just the same…”

Abhinandan: So you got goosebumps? 

Abhijeet: Yeah, I actually have that tattooed on my right leg.

Rajyasree: Both the lines?

Abhinandan: Because it’s on Wimbledon or because it’s Rudyard Kipling's poem?

Abhijeet: Both, because it was my favourite poem when I was in school. 

Abhinandan: And later you learned that it’s at Wimbledon?

Abhijeet: Yes, that’s when I got it tattooed.

Abhinandan: Rajyasree, what do you have tattooed on your leg?

Rajyasree: I have...

Abhinandan: Do mishti dahi, do gulab jamun?

Everyone bursts out laughing.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri, Rajyasree Sen and NL subscriber Abhijeet Dangat review the documentary Boom! Boom! Boris Becker vs The World; the movie M3GAN; season 4 of Succession; and Cadbury ads.
