About the Show

How does a nation break free from the shackles of mismanagement, divisive politics, and a turbulent history to unleash its full potential?

Trinidad and Tobago, a captivating twin state in the southern Caribbean, boasts a turbulent history of colonialism, indentured labour, and a complex cultural blend of African, Indian, and European influences. The political and social landscape is starkly divided between East Indian and African origins, overshadowing the islands’ vibrant culture and potential for growth. 

In this gripping “Game Changers” episode, Rajan Nazran confronts harsh realities with guest Anil Roberts, exposing conflicts of interest, stagnant foreign investment, rampant mismanagement, rising crime rates, and a weaponised legal structure. 

Roberts faced intense public scrutiny due to a contentious statement he made regarding the budget, employing an analogy involving an Indian woman and an African woman. In the ensuing conversation, he addresses and elaborates on these remarks, offering additional context to elucidate their potential impact on the country’s future.

The once-promising future now teeters on the brink, demanding a courageous confrontation of the past, celebrating cultural diversity, and committing to inclusive governance for a resilient, harmonious, and prosperous future. Tune in now!

In the wake of a candid dialogue surrounding Trinidad and Tobago featuring guest Kirk Meighoo on one of our podcast episodes on May 18, 2022. Chief Explorer Rajan Nazran graciously invited the High Commissioner H.C Vishnu Dhanpaul to share his insights on our platform. This endeavour sought to foster a comprehensive understanding of the nation’s identity and extend assurances to the investment community regarding the opportunities in the Caribbean region. Regrettably, despite our sincere interest in offering the Government a right of reply, no response has been received. Our request may have been unintentionally overlooked or intentionally unacknowledged.
