Indian Noir is voiced by Nikesh Murali, a professional voice actor and an Amazon bestselling, Commonwealth Short Story Prize and DWL Story Prize-winning writer.

Nikesh is the author of a multi-award winning, Amazon bestselling short story collection 'The Killing fields'.

I had a very different assumption about horror and thriller podcasts before. But this show and Nikesh changed that. As soon as I started listening this podcast I was totally immersed and binged watched multiple episodes at once. The easily consumable format makes it more bingy. Most importantly the writing is superb and how can I not mention the gripping voice performance by Nikesh. You got yourself another fan sir. Thanks for producing this amazing podcast.

Why can’t it be put all at once? This 5 min add in every other day just puts me off listening in.
