The Indian Edit, with Nitasha Manchanda

Cultivating Place show

Summary: Nitasha Manchanda is a genetic scientist, a mother, a wife, a gardener and the creator and host of a podcast series entitled The Indian Edit – exploring the inspiring lives of women of the Indian diaspora – living everywhere from Boston, where Nitasha now makes her home, to Germany, Canada, and even returned to India. Subtitled conversations with innovators in design, culture, and entrepreneurship, The Indian Edit launched in May of 2018. While the podcast is not plant-focused, as a gardener herself - from a family of scientists (including a beloved botanist aunt) and gardeners - Nitasha‘s perspective as host of The Indian Edit is a beautiful illustration of how we all - from spice company founders to sari designers, to photographers - take the vocabulary of our landscapes and plants of origin into the rest of our lives with us, no matter where we go. For Nitasha, that is building (and growing) a creative bridge back to India. Listen in! Cultivating Place now has a donate button!
