Ep. 63: The Professional Fan

Author: IVM Podcasts

The term pursuing your passion is used very often and is very loosely bandied about. We should realise, that for most creative folks, the term should be passions plural, and not passion . This is because creative people usually have multiple things that they really enjoy, and in some cases, they dont necessarily want to turn it into a career. In some cases, they do want to turn it into a career. But some find a crossover. Theyre called professional fans.This week, on this Crossover episode, host Varun Duggirala talks to Tejas Menon, musician and host of The Geek Fruit Podcast, to talk about creating content around content. They also discuss Tejas journey as a professional fan and a creator, talk about how he focusses on his multiple passions, and how hes built Geek Fruit with his co-hosts Jishnu and Dinkar.Also, find out why Tejas and Varun think pop-culture is so important to all of us.Talk to Varun Duggirala on Twitter and Instagram varunduggiYou can follow Tejas Menon on Instagram tejasmenon1989 Twitter tejasmenon.You can also follow Tejas The Geek Fruit Podcast on Instagram ans Twitter geekfruithqYou can listen to this show and other awesome shows on the IVM Podcasts app on Android: https://ivm.today/android or iOS: https://ivm.today/ios, or any other podcast app.
