Episode 4: Master of None

masterofnoneIt’s no secret that Aziz Ansari’s Netflix Original Series Master Of None has become an instant Netflix favorite among viewers. The show has been critically acclaimed for many reasons, including its great soundtrack throughout both the first and second season, and it’s incredibly interesting and diverse use of characters.

The music of season one was called “prolific and distinctive” by critics at Pitchfork. Each song used set the tone of the episode and also helped create an emotionally symbolic backdrop for the main character Dev played by Aziz as he goes through his many misfortunes in New York City among other places. But season two’s narrative launch in Italy takes the soundtrack into equally distinct, if not more diverse musical directions.

without further ado let’s listen to our podcast on Master of None:

I checked Aziz Ansari official website but I couldn’t find his bio there!! So, I checked his Wikipedia page. Aziz Ansari was born in Columbia, South Carolina, to a Tamil Muslim family from Tamil Nadu, India. He was born in February 23, 1983. He is an American actor, comedian, writer, producer, director.

He graduated from the New York University Stern School of Business with a major in marketing. His mother, Fatima, works in a medical office, and his father, Shoukath, is a gastroenterologist. Both Fatima and Shoukath have appeared on Master of None seasons 1 and 2.”
