Awful and Awesome Ep 320: While We Watched, Polite Society, The Vaccine War trailer

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

WrittenBy:NL Team

While discussing the trailer for Vivek Agnihotri’s The Vaccine War: 

Rajyasree: Much like Covaxin, this film also clearly got an emergency approval! Also, Raima Sen plays a journalist. 

Manisha: She plays an evil journalist. “India can’t do it!”

Rajyasree: (sarcastically) Media is evil!

Manisha: I don’t know which television news anchor would come and say “India can’t do it!”.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Rajyasree Sen and Manisha Pande review the movie Polite Society, the documentary While We Watched, the third season of The Morning Show, the trailer for Vivek Agnihotri’s The Vaccine War, and the latest controversy surrounding the comedian Hasan Minhaj.
