Melting Pot

Melting Pot

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.

“There is light at the end of the tunnel, I simply followed the darkness of my own being and kept going until I discovered the light of my soul. Making peace with my deep dark shadows and accepting all my negatives and healing them I discovered my true strength and beauty. My message for everyone is "be you, for you". Unapologetic, authentic and raw and see how magic happens.
