Description

A weekly podcast that explains burning issues that you should know, to help you appear smarter than you are, to an audience that knows no less ;-)

So basically, we take topics and attempt to deconstruct them - using a bit of humour and analogies and quotes from Yes, Prime Minister.

Hosted by:
Chuck aka Deepak Gopalakrishnan: A guy who makes Powerpoints in an ad agency for a living, and does some random stuff on the side, including cartooning, BSchool-oriented comedy, teaching (!) and cycling. His Twitter handle is @chuck_gopal.
Naren aka Narendra Shenoy: An industrial mogul (maybe) who is one of the funniest bloggers in the country (yes!). Well-traveled, well-read, well-opinionated, well-of-course is the sagacious Naren. Follow him at @shenoyn.

We are proud to now be a part of the IndusVox Media Podcast network \o/

Ep. 110: Can we really suck Carbon (and other bad things) out of the air?
In the last episode, we Simblified climate change (spoiler alert if you haven't heard it: It's real. Climate change, not our episode. Though... That's also real but shockingly less terrible for the world). This week, we look at various techniques that have been discussed for removing carbon from the atmosphere. We've all thought putting a giant vacuum cleaner in public places should do the trick, right? There are several other ways too... And while there's been massive progress, none of them have really become THE solution. The Simblified trio look at ways to remove gases from the atmosphere, all while pumping several doses of gas back into it. (Heh). NEW TO SIMBLIFIED? 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. Your hosts (and Twitter / Instagram handles) are Chuck (@chuck_gopal / @chuckofalltrades), Srikeit (@srikeit, @srikeit) and Naren (@shenoyn, @shenoynv). We are part of the IVM Podcast network, who, till this day, wonder why they signed us on.

Ep. 109: Yep, we're all screwed: The UN Report on Climate Change says so
Enjoy yourselves, we've got till about 2040 for that. After that, says the most comprehensive climate change study yet, we're pretty dang screwed if we can't contain rising temperatures to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. People from Mumbai might scoff at a mere 1.5-degree rise, but unlike cheap engineering colleges, every degree here matters. The Simblified trio breaks things down for you - but now as well as how the world will break down in 2 decades... Yeah, this episode is not exactly cheerful. But hey, to balance it out, we have lots of our trademark humor (which will give you one positive effect of climate change - those will cease to exist soon). NEW TO SIMBLIFIED?
