Description

Melting Pot shares some human stories from all over the world though conversations with inspiring and interesting people.


Despite there being so many diverse cultures, languages, physical appearances, geographical boundaries and locations; there is just one commonality binding us altogether and that is the human story. The commonality between these people is passion or a calling and they have dared to make it their personal reality, by following their dreams, some have tried to introduce unknown aspects of their culture to the world, others have simply made it a way of life and then there are yet others who have made a difference and transformed lives. 


Payal has been in awe of most of her guests through her podcasting journey so far and she feels humbled at how they have opened up their hearts and shared their life stories with her which she is then able to bring to listeners from all over the world to enjoy, listen, appreciate, absorb and take away from.

Debprotim Roy is the founder and CEO of Canvs.in. Canvs has built a foundational studio of independent senior designers they call Canvs Club, a model that has allowed Canvs to completely rethink the way the modern design agency works. As Club, Canvs manages multiple distributed design teams and works with them to fulfil projects with some of the most important names in the industry. Canvs’ vision is to bring quality digital design to every firm in India, no matter their size. To achieve that, Canvs has recently launched a unique Design program called Access that allows small startups and teams to work with senior designers within an affordable scope. With Access, Canvs broke the mould of the incumbent agency-client dynamic and moved towards a simplified, results-oriented, time-limited relationship between firms that serves the need of both sides, skills and its demands. Being a product designer himself, Debprotim personally steers many of Club’s projects himself. At Canvs he is continuously testing methods to break the existent baggage in the industry by adopting fresher business models and products. He believes to really make an impact in Design, we need to start empowering non-designers with its immediate benefits. Aside from running Canvs, Debprotim takes a deep interest in the bleeding-edge tech of machine intelligence. And although he claims he is not much of a reader, when he does read he likes to stick to non-fiction and scientific literature, with a strong exception to the book The Martian, which he claims to have thrice.  Apple Podcasts: https://buff.ly/2Vf8vv8⠀Spotify: https://buff.ly/2Vf8uHA⠀Google Podcasts:https://buff.ly/2Vds6LX⠀...-Original music credit: Rish Sharma.His music is available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and other streaming platforms.  -Audio post production at HNM Studios New Delhi India.-October2019 voicesandmore Pte Ltd All rights reserved See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
