The Filter Koffee Podcast: Pradeep Narayan on the caste system and how it both provides privileges and denies them

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 every week 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.
