Do Asians prioritise buying cars over their first property? We’re asking this after caller Jay got in touch with the show to say he’s spending £65,000 on a new car. That’s a sum of money you could put down as a deposit on a new house. Is getting on the property ladder so hard that it's not even worth thinking about? After, we hear from a Pakistani artist whose country is being represented for the first time at one of the world’s most prestigious arts events, the Venice Biennale. Naiza Khan's exhibition explores the culture and identity of an island called Manora in Pakistan. Then, Anurag Kashyap, one of the most celebrated filmmakers in India is in the UK for the London Indian Film Festival and joins us on the show. He’s directed movies including Gangs of Wasseypur and co-directed the Netflix original series Sacred Games. Later, we want to hear about your experience of living with food allergies?
