The Last Episode | ThisConnect Season 01 Ep 20
Episode 20 marks the end of the first Season of #ThisConnect, our #podcast. For the past 5 months, we've loved interacting with you in the comments' stream. So for this episode we decided to pick two comments from each episode that really made us think. These are your comments and this is what Kartikeya Singhee and Shumi are thinking on those topics. - It's a long episode, three times the normal size, so we've broken the chapters into "questions" and "answers". Do feel free to skip ahead if you like. And we do have questions for you at the end (in the last chapter). We would like to hear from you! Thank you so much for watching! We're super thrilled you all have enjoyed ThisConnect so much! We hope to see you on Season 2, very soon! ~ CHAPTERS 00:00-00:58 Introduction 00:59-02:13 Q: Riding Gear 02:14- 04:27 All The Gear All The Time 04:28-06:27 Q: Family Perspective 06:28-11:20 The State Of Fear 11:2-15:18 Q: India's Two-Wheeler Market 15:19-17:23 India's The Next Big Thing 17:24-17:41 Q: Yamaha Fans' Woes 17:42-19:14 Yamaha's A Bit Lost 19:15-19:44 Q: Stock Bikes on Racetracks? 19:45-21:06 Stock Bikes + Racetracks is OK! 21:07-21:12 Q: Racetracks are far! 21:13-23:32 Good Things Need Effort 23:33-24:56 Q:Price vs Value 24:57-26:44 Cars Today?
