On the Contrary by IDR
On the Contrary by India Development Review (IDR) is a show about listening to people not like us. In every episode, host Arun Maira chats with experts as they share differing perspectives on an issue—caste, environmental sustainability, dissent. The goal is to get people who might sit on different sides of an issue to explore their similarities and differences, and find a new, shared understanding. New episode every Wednesday.
