The Story Behind Little Fixes Podcast
Hi Sassy Naari,
Thank you for being here. Here I’m going to tell you all about my journey towards starting Little Fixes Podcast. There’s a lot to say so I will keep updating this post every now and then.
Growing up, I was always told that girls shouldn’t do or can’t do a lot of things. I internalized those beliefs and kept living my life as per the beliefs of my family and the society. I limited myself- studied what was expected, dressed as expected, took a ‘safe’ government job as expected and got married at the ‘right’ age.
Luckily, after marriage, my husband’s thought process and support helped me in shedding some of the limitations and slowly I started exploring myself. I quit the government job and started working as a social media manager for a popular beauty blog. This was back in 2014. In 2016, I let go of my fear and gave motherhood a chance. After my daughter’s arrival, the initial months were difficult but soon I came across inspiring women on social media and started learning from them. I realized that I can do more.
I started listening to podcasts in 2018; I loved the medium but found out that there was rarely any podcast focused on Indian women by Indian women. And in 2019, I decided to launch my own podcast Little Fixes. The aim of the podcast is to provide simple, actionable ideas to women to help them in fixing or improving various aspects of their lives. Over the years, Little Fixes has had episodes on physical health, mental health, relationships, parenting, career and more. Now the podcast is more focused on mental health, physical health and personal growth.
Launched in December 2019, Little Fixes Podcast has grown into a woman-oriented audio magazine with more than 100 topics discussed in an engaging way.
Little Fixes has released 102 episodes till now (as on 2nd Feb 2023). It’s a place where women can get effective and actionable ideas to improve their daily lives in small ways and thrive.
I release new episodes on the 5th and 20th of every month. The episodes on the 5th are short and solo where I talk about my life and learnings. On the 20th, I release interviews with guest who share practical tips related to various aspects of a woman’s life like career, entrepreneurship, personal growth, mental health, physical health and more. It’s a Hindi-English podcast targeted at urban millennial women.
Little Fixes podcast has helped many women in coming out of overwhelm and frustration as small changes lead to big outcomes gradually. I get many DMs of appreciation on my Instagram page and seeing how an episode has helped a woman gives me the satisfaction of doing the right thing.
Little Fixes has been featured on Quora Hindi, Rajasthan Patrika and many other digital platforms. Many wonderful women like Chhavi Mittal, Simrun Chopra, Sherry Shroff and Saru Mukherjee Sharma have been on the show to inspire women with their stories and experiences.
The podcast is available on all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music and Google Podcasts.
Apart from being a podcaster, I am a social media marketer working freelance with women-owned businesses. I am also a wife and mom to a girl. We used to live in the beautiful city of Jaipur but have moved to Bangalore in December 2022.
