Along with Jaimit Doshi, I have launched a new show — hippoBrain. As we put it, it is about “hippo-sized conversations with hippo-sized brains.” The focus will be largely around data, tech and the consumer.
The idea came a couple months ago. While there is a lot of content out there, what I find missing is deep conversations with people — to really understand their mental models and how they think. In today’s attention-deficit world, everyone is looking for that 30-second sound byte. But what is missing is the context around that. Why does the person think in that way? That’s what we want to do with hippoBrain — give an insight into how the guest on our show think.
We have launched with 3 amazing guests: Vivek Bhargava (Denstu; ad-tech authority), Kartik Jain (DBS, ex-HDFC Bank; marketing maestro) and Anindya Ghose (NYU Stern; mobility and AI guru). We will have one new hippoBrain episode every Friday.
