Pravina Rudra • The Times UK Apr 30, 2023

"Think Sex and the City, but wittier, woke and, most notably, between women who are not white. I shudder at the thought of my parents (who are Sri Lankan) hearing me joke that my safe word in the bedroom is “pakora”, or being examined by a labiaplasty surgeon on air — as has happened in previous episodes of Brown Girls Do It Too. Yet to talk about the ways in which Brown Girls Do It Too is revolutionary does the podcast a disservice."

"With a frankness that would make some south Asian aunties faint with disbelief, best friends Rubina and Poppy tackle possibly the biggest taboo among Asian women: sex...happy to shock the community in the name of greater understanding."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Jul 17, 2022

"(Season/Series 3) For this third series, they have a new all-female production team and it’s noticeable that their presentation has improved with every series. Off-mic, they both speak at a million miles an hour, Rubina possibly at a million and a half. They have a noisy, high-octane energy, like teenagers on the lash."

"Listening to an episode of BGDIT feels like going to the pub with your mates. Fun, carefree, littered with expletives. "
