Dishonest Fun: The Circle's Official Podcast

Double Lives


Alex Hobern is joined by comedian Shazia Mirza, DJ Manara, and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura to discuss their experience of leading double lives, on and off line. Shazia talks about how she pivoted from being a science teacher to a standup comedian, and her parents' response to her chosen career. DJ Manara talks about keeping her identity as a DJ hidden for fear of family disapproval. 

The Circle is streaming on All 4 now.

Dishonest Fun is a Somethin’ Else Production for Channel 4.
