Every Thursday, listeners submit anonymous questions to the “Coach’s Huddle” segment of Coaches Don’t Play in the hopes that host Pammy Bhatti (a.k.a. Coach P) will dish advice on their love lives. Coaches — named for Bhatti’s reputation as someone who gives but doesn’t follow her own advice — offers casual comedic commentary on South Asian and Western pop culture: In one episode, Coach P and her friend Gurveen riff on internalized racism with an analysis of Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee and Deepti Vempati’s relationship on Netflix’s Love is Blind. Coach P’s witty takes are why Coaches has universal appeal — it ranks in the top five per cent of trending podcasts worldwide and charts weekly on Apple Podcasts and Spotify’s top 50.

You can listen to Coaches Don’t Play on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and any podcast streaming app.
