As we consider the elements of improvisation in daily life, Episode 5 features a candid conversation with Amit Tandon, a television producer who is also a first-generation Canadian. Amit shares his memories of navigating the cultural divide between his home and school life via strategies of listening, agility, creativity, risk, and hope.
