India's Massive Farm Protests, Part 1
For several months, India has been in the grip of massive farm protests as millions gather to demonstrate against a series of controversial reforms collectively known as the Farm Bills.

Some even believe the Farm Bills are part of a conspiracy to sacrifice the livelihood of farmers for the profits of large businesses.

So which, if any, of these conspiracies are true? Tune in and learn more in the first part of this two-part episode.
