A void being filled.
As one of the long-time listeners to podcast, I am hooked onto BBC series, NPR series for many years. I was disappointed at the lack of Indian shows which brings out to the audience the many rich aspects of our culture, flora fauna, contemporary issues, topics.
I find this podcast series is an excellent attempt to fill this void and I congratulate the show organisers produces and Pawan. It is making my walks to the beach so invigorating. Best wishes
Deep, beautifully Indian perspective, on a variety of topics
This is just a wonderfully done, long-form show, which covers current national and international topics, historical perspectives and thought frameworks.
You’ll come away from each show (depending on your level of interest in the topic at hand), with a deeper, better informed view and understanding of the topic.
Well mounted and well researched show.
Thanks to the team doing this..
High quality original content
I accidentally stumbled upon this on Saavn and that’s when I learned about ivm podcast network and its other gems like seen and unseen podcast etc.
That discovery changed my life for better so much so that I listen to 2hours of podcasts daily now.
