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. 57 (Rebroadcast): How Ad Films Work: A Chat with Dharam Valia
Today, we rebroadcast one of our favourite interviews: Dharam Valia, who heads an awesome production house based out of Mumbai. Regular programming commences next week! While the film world has lights, camera, action... The advertising world has brief, PPT, ad (roughly). Some ads are better than others. Some of them are so well shot that you might actually stop in wonder and think how they were made (you know, a lot like films themselves). This week, we look at how exactly this is done. We chat with Dharam Valia, who's been running Hungry Films for the last 3 years. Along the way, we take several potshots at advertising, make several poor jokes and glean into the future where digital ads with 'skip' are seen more than traditional TV ads. Oh and Dharam used to be the boss of 2/3 of Simblified - we'll leave it to you to work out which (Hint: Naren never worked in advertising).

Ep. 123: The Union close to being Jacked
On this episode of Simblified, Chuck and Srikeit (Naren was missing, presumably fulfilling his duties as Malad's Batman), check on the progress of Brexit - Britain's hilariously botched attempt of trying to leave the European Union. With just about a month left to the exit deadline and with no deal to gracefully exit anywhere on the horizon, we discuss the potential options for how Brexit may pan out. Almost all options involve Britain comically shooting themselves in the foot so join in for some gyaan and a lot of post-colonial schadenfreude. Also check out the previous episodes where the Simblified lads discussed the trainwreck that is UK politics: Ep. 25 - All You Need(ed) to Know about Brexit: https://ivm.today/SimbRB-25 Ep. 61 - Corbyn May be PM: https://ivm.today/SIMB-61 Ep. 115 - Year end 'Chit-Chat' with Tony Part 1: https://ivm.today/SIMB-115 NEW TO SIMBLIFIED?

Ep. 122: Do we really need civics? Ft. Meghnad & Shreyas from "How to Citizen"
Yes, back in school, Civics was like the token black guy of social studies. Who had time to learn about elected officials while deciduous trees and various dates were waiting to be mugged up! But as we grow older, wiser and more responsible, we find ourselves using the things we were supposed to study in 7th standard more and more useful (no, trigonometry, not you). Meghnad and Shreyas, hosts of a new podcast called "How to Citizen" tell us about this and how we can become better citizens (or at least, better informed while trolling people on Twitter). This is an eye-opening episode and honestly, we could have gone on yammering for another few hours on the topic - but you can hear M&S do that in their show (link below). We also talk about the problems of social studies pedagogy, and go through several of our own experiences and biases. Super chat it was and we hope you enjoy it as well.

Ep. 19 (Rebroadcast): With @MohanK. Holy wow, we have a PhD in Maths on the show!
We were too lazy to record this week, so here's a rebroadcast of an old episode - one of our favourite interviews, with someone who, for some reason, decided to go and do a PhD in mathematics. He tells us what he does, why maths as a career, and makes SEVERAL poor jokes along the way. Ep. 19: We have a very unique guest on the show - one of our closest friends - Mohan Krishnamoorthy (@mohank). He's a - get this - PhD in mathematics. No no no! Don't turn off the episode just yet. He's a ton of fun and sheds light into what he actually does. He's also hilarious, and manages to out-Chuck Chuck with some absolutely hair-tearing-out puns. He's an avid trekker and loves music - so we talk about those as well. Chuck explains the math behind music and wonders why guitars aren't used in classrooms more often. Mohan lets us know about some colourful Aussie slang (not the sledging variety, thankfully). At the end of the show, you will want to: Take up maths as a career, run to the Himalayas, move to Australia and scratch Vegemite off your to-try list. NEW TO SIMBLIFIED?

Ep. 120: We are all about VR today! Ft. Vyaas Shenoy
Virtual Reality is big - and that's, well, reality. Don't take our word for it, take CES' - look at the sheer number of products being revealed each year at the tech extravaganza by giant companies. And if you don't want to take their word for it, then how about taking the word of someone who's worked in this nascent industry? Joining the Simblified trio this week is Vyaas Shenoy - son of Narendra! Young Vyaas tells us about his experience in the field and the potential - right from medicine and training to, well, the naughty bits. This family-friendly* episode was a ton of fun for us to record, and we hope you enjoy it too - even virtually. *Offer valid only if your family is the Shenoys. NEW TO SIMBLIFIED?
