About Us

Th3 Other Half is a new podcast hosted by us — Niaz, Mike, and Eugene.
Inspired by the use of the long-form media format as a tool to investigate and learn about things that are not always discussed in mainstream media, we, 3 curious idiots, seek to speak with individuals from all walks of life. We will hear their stories, explore their knowledge, and learn (and at times challenge) their opinions – and take you on this journey with us.
Today, most people follow the current celebrity culture; and often, the opinions of out-of-touch, social elites drive the mainstream cultural dialog. Although this phenomenon is usually treated as a form of escapism, its impact on the cultural zeitgeist is penetrating and lasting.
While we, too, are reluctant participants of these distractions, we wanted to take a step back in order to take a step forward – perhaps in a better direction. Using this platform, we’ll be speaking with a variety of talented individuals from all walks of life. From professionals, intellectuals, and artists who hone their craft on a daily basis, to everyday Americans and global citizens who do important work that would otherwise be glanced over by the limelight – we will hear their stories.  
Whether you lean politically Left or Right, are a cosmopolitan or an isolationist, or a hunter or gatherer (the first socially divisive structure), people usually miss out on the other half of the truth, the other half of the experience, and the other half of the story. Our goal is to learn and share this with you. With a genuine sense of curiosity and a humble understanding of our own knowledge gaps, we’re eager to know more about this world, and the people who make it what it is.
Our Philosophy: Everyone’s got a story to share, but not everyone has a way to do so. In our journey to learn more, we want to do our part to help you hear from Th3 Other Half.
And, when we get off our high horses, we’ll also be discussing movies, books, current events, and just life stuff.

The Hosts

Niaz07 (1)
With a background in journalism and filmmaking, Niaz embarked on this journey to pursue his passion of storytelling. He’s an avid traveler and amateur adventurer. Niaz is an ardent follower of news, politics, and foreign affairs. He is a spirited enthusiast of movies, wildlife, space, guns, and history. By day, Niaz is a Project Manager in New York City; by night, a fierce practitioner of dark humor and free speech. Observing daily life and current events through a lens of laughter, logic, and common sense, Niaz is often flabbergasted by today’s growing culture of unrestrained political correctness.
Mike grew up in New York’s Lower East Side. He finds traveling and experiencing new cultures quite fulfilling. Mike enjoys all types of food from the most elegant fine dining to the grittiest street food. He frequents EDM festivals, embraces the culture, and parties HARD. He has gained a wide-range of expertise through various jobs in his life. Mike currently works in IT Management in New York City. He thought it would be important for the audience to know that he is a Libra. Mike takes pride in his ability to come up with hypothetical scenarios on the fly during interviews. Mike likes dark liquor. He does not like to read.
Eugene immigrated from the former USSR at the crisp age of six. He was thrown face first into the first grade with zero knowledge of the English language. As unpleasant of an experience as it was, it taught him the power of perseverance. This became the core foundation of his character. Eugene is a father and a husband first and foremost, and accepts that responsibility with a fervor that knows no bounds; only comparable to his insatiable thirst for knowledge and understanding. During the day, he works as a Testing and Balancing Technician in New England, and by the darkest of night, he is the newest and most opinionated member of the pack. As it is quite necessary to thrive in this world, Eugene does like to read.
