Description

A  fortnightly podcast that explains things in the news to help you appear smarter, to an audience that knows no less ;-). Basically, we take topics and attempt to deconstruct them - using generous pilfering from Wikipedia, a bit of humour (that's a flexible usage of the word), Wodehouse quotes and more. Occasionally, we invite guests who know better than us (not a high bar) to discuss fun careers and stuff.

Hosted by three pun-loving madcaps who think Malad is the best thing since Android: Chuck, Naren and Srikeit.

Ep. 117: Simblified Year-End "Chit-Chat" with Tony - Part 3
Hey! It's the first Simblified episode of the new year - but it's the same format as the last two. We pick topics out of a hat, and talk about what happened in 2018, and what 2019 holds. It's part punditry, part talking out of a hat, literally. This is also the latest that we've ever recorded an episode, so apologies for the yawns (ours, not yours!). The Simblified trio is joined by the sagacious Tony Sebastian, who co-authors a weekly satirical newsletter, The Third Slip (along with Chuck) as they pick topics out of a hat (headphone case actually) and talk about what happened in 2018, and what 2019 holds. 50% bleak, 40% optimism, 10% jokes. Maybe. You'll have to listen to find out. This is the 3rd of the series (no more, we promise!) so if you missed those, go back and listen to 'em!

It's an Indian podcast - probably the best to come from Malad West - that takes things that happen around us, and deconstructs them in a language you can understand, often surmounting several puns and PG Wodehouse references along the way. We aim to make you appear smarter during parties, job interviews, and dates.

Ep. 115: Simblified Year-End "Chit-Chat" with Tony - Part 1
Well, that's been a fun year, hasn't it? Who can say bad things about a year where we had rising populism, climate change neglect, growing legitimacy for idiot rulers... As long as we have an internet-connected toilet bowl at the end of it!

Ep. 111: Everything you wanted to know about Indipop - with Atul Churamani
Everyone remembers the Golden Indipop era fondly. Starting with Baba Seghal & Alisha, through to its peak of Silk Route & Sonu Nigam's pre-Bollywood excursions, to Bhangra-fuelled anthems, to an arguably inevitable decline. Everyone has a kvlt favourite (ours is Paisa by Agosh!). To talk about Indipop - why it came about, how it grew & matured (and, well, immatured) and why we don't have a 'scene' today, the Simblified trio speaks to Atul Churamani. Atul was an important part of the Indipop movement with Magnasound in the 90s, pivotal to development of many artists' careers and positioning. He now runs Turnkey Publishing (one of India’s few independent music publishers, A&R, and curation of artists for music festivals), and has spent several years in the music industry. Join us for a fascinating chat about one of the most glorious eras of this most indigenous of genres, the importance of MTV / Channel [V] / and of course, Bollywood. It was one of the most enlightening chats we've ever had, thoroughly proven by how silent the three hosts were (and thank goodness for that).
