About Rajan Nazran

“Rajan is irreverent, culturally curious, never condescending and exceptionally approachable. If you listen to his Podcasts, you can’t help but be transported into intimate authentic conversations that go beyond the ordinary. He has the extraordinary ability to put people at ease, regardless of the stature of his guests.  They all open to him and, in doing so, often reveal more about their unique experiences and countries than a traditional reporter could ever hope to document.”

Far from the conversional, Rajan Nazran made his career through his fearless travels and poetic use of words. His restless spirit has seen him cover over 58 countries and spurred him to take on the bigger discussions that mainstream media often shy away from.  His work has been viewed by millions across the globe in over 48 countries, with large media houses carrying his first-person journals as he traverses across regions plunging audiences into the astonishing accounts of the human experiences and provides a deeper look behind countries, communities and economies.
