The Filter Koffee Podcast: Muskan Sethi, India's first professional female poker player, discusses milestones in her journey

The Filter Koffee podcast is not an interview. It is a window into the minds of the most interesting people that the host has met — a peek into their craft, passions and convictions. It is about a great conversation — the kind that enhances your world view from what it was 40 minutes earlier. And much like coffee itself, the ingredients make the experience.

The Filter Koffee Podcast is all about creating those experiences through hand-picked guests, who are among the most interesting minds in India. They talk about their journeys, body of work, convictions, inspirations and the tales they lived to tell.

Karthik Nagarajan, cryptographer-turned-researcher-turned-screenwriter-turned-marketer sits down with creators, activists, business leaders, and the occasional neighbour for an unstructured chat.

Going All In!

In this episode, we are in conversation with Muskan Sethi, who is India's first professional woman poker player. Muskan learnt most of her craft playing online and broke into the global scene when she won a million dollars in an international TV show, Shark Cage.

Muskan talks about her growing years, her game style and working her way up in a country where poker is still largely associated with gambling among other things. She also tells us about the award she received from the President of India, the poker league structure in India and what the game means to her.
