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.
