A Whole Lotta Gray

By Anish Anandaram
Discourse today is incredibly polarized. People view issues through a binary lens - you’re either completely right or completely wrong. You’re either a good person or a bad person. The problem with this is that it ignores just how complicated the issues that govern our beliefs really are.

That’s why, in a world which increasingly looks at socio-political, economic and cultural issues through a black or white view, this podcast seeks to cut through the noise and get to the most intricate parts of each issue.

Presenting to you, “A Whole Lotta Gray” with Anish Anandaram.
