Besides Song Exploder, Hrishikesh produced and co-hosted the award-winning podcasts Home Cooking, with Samin Nosrat, and The West Wing Weekly, with Joshua Malina. He’s also the host and producer of the Partners podcast. He helped Google launch their first original podcast, and is the executive producer of Shirley Manson’s podcast, The Jump, for Mailchimp. As a composer, he has written and recorded original scores for movies and television, including the Netflix series “Everything Sucks!”, the film “Save the Date, the CNN documentary “Our Nixon,” and the video game “The Red Lantern.”

Fast Company named him one of the Most Creative People in Business in 2021. He serves the Library of Congress as an advisor on digital strategy. He gave a TED Talk on how to listen to people to connect more deeply with them and their stories.
