Amazing conversations

Amit’s podcast covers a variety of topics of general interest. He engages in long conversations with his guests, and delves deep into all the aspects of both the guests’ personal background as well as the topic of the episode. With each episode offering something of value, this is one unmissable, high quality podcast show from India. The best part is that it keeps getting better with each episode and the latest one with Jerry Pinto is simply enchanting!

I enjoyed this podcast back when runtime was at an acceptable duration 1-1.5 hour

Listening to a podcast for 4-5 hours is infeasible for anyone no matter how free they are.

Hello sir

I am your huge fan, I love long episodes because i don’t like shortcut to understand critical issues. You became a bridge between me and elite people’s ideas. I learnt a lot from you. Thank you so much sir.
