This month, we’re starting a new feature series--BTS or Behind-the-Show. The series will introduce our listeners to their favourite podcast host and perhaps unveil some interesting things about them you may not already know.
For our first BTS, we’re talking to Heetal Bhatia, the co-host of The Two Vegans, one of the first podcasts from the Amaeya Media Network. In response to our rapid-fire questions, some of Heetal's answers were the expected level of quirky, others quite unpredictable! And we'd love to be a fly on the wall when she has her vegan dinner with Kim Jong-Un, wouldn't you?
