Not just my favourite Indian podcast but arguably my favourite podcast ever! I love the host, Amit Varma’s keen listening capabilities, giving the guest an unbridled freedom to put forth their opinions before formulating such insightful questions in response. The topics are very informative, they...Read full review »

Just brilliant! Love the topics and the arc of every discussion here. You feel enriched and much more aware about the universe we inherit. Amit Varma is a genius and he should be celebrated. Even if you are not from India, this podcast has a lot for you. Give it a try.

Amit’s podcast covers a variety of topics of general interest. He engages in long conversations with his guests, and delves deep into all the aspects of both the guests’ personal background as well as the topic of the episode. With each episode offering something of value, this is one...Read full review »

There - that’s the review….!
simplyanand via Apple Podcasts · India · 05/05/21
The podcast covers the most important economic topics in a very well researched, very engaging manner. If edited to under 1 hr., id give it 5 stars. The initial chit chat is way too long.
vvgiri via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/21
This is one of the best podcasts when it comes to expanding your knowledge and awareness around politics, current affairs, economics, food etc. in the Indian context. Pretty holistic and neutral coverage of issues. many of the episodes explore the underbelly of India. Hear stories that aren’t...Read full review »

This podcast has taught me so much about India and about economics!
Throwaway122290 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/21
I found the show very interesting and informative. It is not an easy task to glue a listener for almost four hours. Greatly appreciated!

One of the most beautiful poignant and intellectually stimulating podcast that combines finer elements of literature, politics and economy

I loved listening to your Podcast.(Adman) you are fantastic! How do I buy a cup of coffee?
gomathi Nagaraj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/20
Judging this after listening to only one podcast, wherein the content was quite exhaustive and could bound me for over 3 hours spent in quality content. Keep it up
Pravin Bawankule via Apple Podcasts · India · 08/23/20
This podcast takes a deep dive, and doesn’t shy away from spending time on the topic. In the age of bad journalism, this podcast is an exception.
Suraj.kaul via Apple Podcasts · India · 08/18/20
This podcast in recent times has been one of my main sources of book recommendations. The in-depth analysis offered by the myriad guests is indeed enlightening.
docnix13 via Apple Podcasts · India · 08/11/20
The length of podcast provides scope for an in-depth analysis without a time constraints. Definitely one of the best in the country in the recent times.
Ukay's via Apple Podcasts · India · 07/11/20
An excellent podcast with well-researched, in-depth discussions of many topics related to the history, religious ideas, and politics of India. Amit Varna is an excellent journalist and host.
bdp11 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/22/20
I really enjoy the conversations. I get to learn a lot of new things about the policies in the India along with the history.
two.face.01 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 05/22/20
Amit, I love your show and would like to contribute. I am based in the US. Do you accept Venmo for that coffee or lunch? Would you mention in your next show how international listeners can contribute?
jdtomd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/21/20
I recently came across this podcast. The guests were quite good, they had amazing opinions, pro-government and against government, with all the right logic to support or oppose government. Then the politically biased host comes, and tries to make a selective point of how government is doing bad....Read full review »

Every podcast gives a new perspective about the each topics and makes you wonder there are lot to learn and no matter how much we know about something there is always unseen side of it where most of the time we either ignore it or it doesn’t suits our own interest and thought process. Thank you...Read full review »

Honestly Amit Varma brings quite interesting and current topics every week. The podcasts are thought provoking, gives lot of learning. He covers current topics , keep it up Amit.
Monty@BGL via Apple Podcasts · India · 04/05/20
One of best podcasts I have ever heard in 22 years of my existence, Amit varma should try doing podcast on video medium like joe rogan or beerbiceps .
yash27060 via Apple Podcasts · India · 03/29/20
This podcast has the much needed quality of deep diving on issues that cannot be described in a tweet, headline or hashtag. While Amit might digress into wider discussions, I’ve seen improvement in recent episodes where the topic is adhered to more consciously. Finally, thank you for throwing...Read full review »
individual freedom now via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/20
Varma has unfortunately right-wing views on economics, but he (a) gets very informative guests and (b) has the intellectual humility to know when someone knows more and is more interesting than him – a level of self-awareness unfortunately too rare in today’s media environment –while also having...Read full review »

I absolutely love listening to the Seen and the Unseen! Every episode, I walk away learning something new, having a more nuanced perspective on the topics presented and feeling smarter! :) There are a lot of heavily US based behavioural economics books, podcasts plus research out there, but I...Read full review »

Inviting one guest (of your choice...of course an author of a book generally) and discussing on a topic not recommended especially on controversial topics. Get one or two guests more to counter views. It may be subject expert or one can oppose the views of author of the book under discussion. Any...Read full review »

This comment is on episode # 151: Economy of India in 2019. The Shah Rukh of Economics of India says, so what if only 3% pays income tax in India, anyway everybody pays indirect tax (GST). I had a good laugh when he said that. If you are looking for funny podcast on the subject of economics,...Read full review »

Please stop peddling your political agenda. Disappointed to see that Your reporting of CAA is amateurish & full of falsehood. You cheer the anarchy & hooligans. Why are you combining CAA & NRC? Looks like you have a sinister agenda. People like you are a disservice to society. It is a...Read full review »

Amit’s podcast is one of the few to have explored different topics and issues acros a wide spectrum, from history to contemporary, from arts to science. I really like the choice of disucssion topics and some of the speakers brought in. As far as political topics are concerned, i feel the...Read full review »

This was one of my favourite podcasts. But the recent episodes are too long, and not focused. I recommend you listen to the first 50-100 episodes and skip the recent ones.
Abhinav Manchanda via Apple Podcasts · India · 11/04/19
Amit's show is, in my mind, the best Indian podcast out there. Informative, engaging, funny at times, challenging and such good quality guests. He's able to get under a topic so well so even people who know nothing about the topic take something away. 2 hours feels like half an hour,...Read full review »

I look forward every week for a deeper insight into a new socio-political, economic theme. Makes me think each time and shapes my opinion.

One of the best podcasts to listen to especially in indian context.

The Seen and The Unseen has been a constant mind tickler and a superb source of information. I’ve been following the podcast for about two years now and have come across brilliant analogies which have challenged my views and sometimes forced me to reconsider my opinions. Thanks Amit sir.

Amit Verma gets some great guests on this show. I especially liked listening to Tony Joseph (Early Indians), Shruti Rajagoplan (Judiciary) etc. But Amit Verma himself is a bit of letdown at times due to his biases. I say take the positive facts from this show and try to forget the leftist...Read full review »

I just finished listening to the interview with Manu Pillai. What a treat! The 2.30 hour interview felt like a great movie. Kudos to both. One of my favorites that I intend listen many times.

Very sad that people still presenting one sided view I hope you present the balanced approach.
Sandys563 via Apple Podcasts · India · 07/02/19
Not that you have asked me this question of what I am most hopeful about and what do I despair most about but I will answer this question. The fact that there is a voice like Amit Verma’s out there and accessible to 1.4 billion people is a reason for hope. The fact that there is only one Amit...Read full review »

To anyone who thinks this show is anti-BJP, they most probably haven’t even heard it. The host is most definitely biased, he has no qualms hiding his biases about being a libertarian. It’s quite funny that a libertarian is considered to be opposite to the only ‘right’ wing party in Indian...Read full review »

It is incredibly smart so I can understand why others would think this was anti-BJP. Very balanced and I would recommend it for people who want to think for themselves.
Aishu88 via Apple Podcasts · India · 02/28/19
Seems the host is trying to propagate only anti BJP sentiment. Why there is never a so called right winger called on the show. Shows which are not related to politics are great and informative indeed. I don’t doubt the ability, but the intent for sure.

I've been listening for quite a while. And feel that the shows are quite biased and anti-BJP policies.Read full review »
