Two big things… and apologies for the late notice but it’s been a monumental week! Hope y’all enjoyed that J.Lo + Garth Brooks concert yesterday. Try explaining that to your 1999 self.
Please mark your calendars for tonight (Thursday, 1/21) and tomorrow (Friday, 1/22) at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT.
Last week’s debut went great… truly appreciate that so many of you tuned in: you gave us 4000+ views and 600+ comments. (Yes, it’s on Facebook but you don’t need a Facebook account to watch.) Here’s the debut video. And this is what it looked like…
It's essentially a Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon for the Desi community. And during this period of isolation and craziness, this soul-feeding project is based on the idea of how interconnected we all are.
It’s a Zoom-based game of social geography where contestants use their personal networks to create a “daisy chain” of people to get to a specific person designated "The Chosen One." Oh, and we came up with a name… Desi Chain!
You will not be on camera. All you have to do is click here to tune in and watch.
See you tonight at 8 PM ET!
