It's a Think Fast after a slow long weekend but an equally hectic week gone by. So today, the episode was a long introduction segment of multiple interesting stories. Hosts Varun & Suchita begin with Varun (finally) turning 40 and his serene Birthday Bash by the Pool. Further, they talk about the demise of ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala and his esteemed portfolio, Threads on LinkedIn about Indians returning from abroad, WeWork's Adam Neumann's latest venture- Flow, Salman Rushdie's stabbing, and thoughts on Indian Matchmaking season 2. They then deep dive into talking about Amazon acquiring Rhoomba, Peloton & Soul Cycle laying off employees, HBO India hiring a team here but then being unsure about carrying on, and Snapchat crushing its subscription service. Continuing the long introduction, they also talk about Crypto firms being accused of Money Laundering, Man using Tinder to find a sister and avoid Rakshabandhan FOMO, Brand integrations in films with reference to the recent example of Netflix's film 'Darlings', and IMDb vandalism.
