Desi Geek Girls


Swapna Krishna and Preeti Chhibber, two Indian lady nerds, talk geek pop culture, a lot of Star Wars, and some Bollywood thrown in for good measure.

May 23, 2018

Sendhil Ramamurthy joins hosts Swapna Krishna and Preeti Chhibber to talk about his role on the new show Reverie, being one of the first South Asian actors we loved, and the thing he loves as much as Desi Geek Girls loves Star Wars. Catch the first episode of Reverie on NBC on May 30, 10 PM ET/9 PM CT.

Description of Reverie (from NBC): From Mickey Fisher, the creator of “Extant,” this grounded new thriller follows Mara Kint (Sarah Shahi), a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behavior who became a college professor after facing an unimaginable personal tragedy. But when her former boss, Charlie Ventana (Dennis Haysbert), brings her in to save ordinary people who have lost themselves in a highly advanced immersive virtual-reality program in which you can live out your wildest dreams, she finds that in saving others, she may actually have discovered a way to save herself.
