The Seen and the Unseen, hosted by Amit Varma, features longform conversations that aim to give deep insights into the subjects being discussed. Timeless and bingeworthy.

    Caste, Capitalism and Chandra Bhan Prasad

    Caste, Capitalism and Chandra Bhan Prasad

    The evil of caste will be solved not by deliverance from up top but empowerment from down below. Dalit scholar and writer Chandra Bhan Prasad joins Amit Varma in episode 296 of The Seen and the Unseen to explain why the cure for caste lies in capitalism -- and why his two great heroes are Babasaheb Ambedkar and Adam Smith.

Nice but needs trimming

I love listening but worried at the trend on increasing length of the show! Ideally it would be 45 minutes and crisp. 45 mins is easily pluggable into people’s daily life. 4 hr is not !

I enjoy listening to noted economists and their thoughts on what can be done to make India deliver on its promise !

You really need to keep a tab on your time

This used to be one of my loved podcasts, however, you have lost the art of keeping track of the time a podcast runs which is a bummer! I used to listen to your podcast while driving to/back from work but now it is just not feasible!

The runtimes are crazy

This podcast has, without a doubt, some of the best content out there. But moving away from 1-1.5hr length to 3,4,5 (!) hours for a podcast is not something I can get behind.
