Ep. 118: What are New Year celebrations about?

SimblifiedEpisode118.png

Happy new year! Unless, of course, you're one of those cultures that celebrates your new year in March, April, August, October... Yes, the "Jan 1" thing is a relatively recent phenomenon thanks to Roman Calendars (thanks, Julius, as Asterix would say). On this shortie, the Simblified trio look at New Year cultures around the world and some things people around the world do to bring it in, apart from going for loud parties which invariably will have "Ishq Tera Tadpave" at some point.

Ep. 117: Simblified Year-End "Chit-Chat" with Tony - Part 3

SimblifiedEpisode117.png

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!

Ep. 115: Simblified Year-End "Chit-Chat" with Tony - Part 1

Ep. 114: The RBI-Government tug of war

The past weeks saw an uncharacteristically public spat between the Government and the RBI over who calls the shots over banking and money supply. The RBI doesn't want to pump in money into the economy. The government desperately needs it to.

Ep. 112: The most isolated tribe in the world

SimblifiedEpisode112.png

No this episode is not about Simblified listeners. Rather it's about a bunch of Indians who live in the North Sentinel island in the Andamans. They've recently been in the news for re-acquainting a Christian missionary with God when he tried to convert them. We attempt to simblify this 21st century stone age community's habits, language and of course, the so-called civilised world's rather uncivil behaviour with them.

Ep. 71: (Rebroadcast) What Goes Behind Mood Indigo?

SimblifiedEpisode71RB.png

Every year, thousands... Lakhs, actually, of people look forward to IIT Bombay's annual cultural festival in December, Mood Indigo. It's a massive show that sees engineering students (and then some) from all over briefly forgetting Fermat and Mass Transfer and focusing on rock shows, events and informals. As one can imagine, pulling off an event of such scale is a huge process that starts way back in April itself. Simblified speaks to Karan and Chaitanya from the current Mood Indigo organising team to learn how it's done and it's a fascinating chat!

Ep. 111: Everything you wanted to know about Indipop - with Atul Churamani

SimblifiedEpisode111.png

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).

Ep. 110: Can we really suck Carbon (and other bad things) out of the air?

SimblifiedEpisode110.png

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).

Ep. 109: Yep, we're all screwed: The UN Report on Climate Change says so

SimblifiedEpisode109.png

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).

Ep. 107: How China is (kinda) taking over the world

SimblifiedEpisode107.png

While Trump is being a bit of an arse trying to alienate everyone, China is busy making friends. Specifically, it's going out and building ports and roads and stuff everywhere. How nice of them! Or... Is it?

China's 'infrastructure diplomacy' comes with a huge terms-and-conditions-apply. The Simblified trio unravel all this on the latest episode, while making several bad jokes along the way.

Ever wonder why JNU is such a big issue when there is never any proof? Or why so much conversation about Trump's inauguration crowd sizes when obviously the grounds were empty?
We live in an era of deception and blatant lying by those in power. In these bleak times, our Simblified trio attempt to understand the new vehicle of the post truth era - Firehosing.

Ep. 104: Oil's Well that Doesn't End Well: What Determines Petrol Prices?

SimblifiedEpisode104.png

As the petrol price is about to raise its bat to the pavilion as it nears its much-awaited century, Indians must be wondering... Hey, if oil around the world is getting cheaper, why are we paying more? (The more bhakt-oriented among us might argue that this is our way of swimming against the tide). In truth, oil prices worldwide are not as straightforward as your economics professor would like - there's a lot of geopolitics involved. In this rather gassy episode, our Simblified trio break down (much like crude oil into petroleum) the funda of oil prices and why India pays so damn much.

Ep. 103: (Visarjan Special Shortie!) Eco-Friendly Ganeshas: What's that all about?

SimblifiedEpisode103.png

It's submerjan time! The annual festival celebrated in the name of the Hindu pachyderm-headed God, Ganesha involves dunking decorated idols into water bodies. And while it's likely that the average Simblified listener is more likely to be listening to a podcast than throwing Gods into the Sea (good name for a novel!), it's a good time to look at the trend of 'eco-friendly Ganeshas'. Does a more organic idol pollute less? Is this a fringe trend or something sustainable? Join Chuck, Naren and Srikeit as we take a look.

And hey, if you're running a Visarjan procession - why not blare out a Simblified episode instead of an item number?

Ep. 102: Pride, Simblified - A Look at Section 377 Which is now History

SimblifiedEpisode102.png

On 6 September, India took a massive step forward when the regressive Section 377 (a law that has its roots in the 14th century!) was scrapped, giving members of the LGBTQ community recognition. It's not the end of the battle, and there's a long way to go before they have other rights the rest of us take for granted - such as unions & marriage - not to mention acceptance by society at large and bigoted uncles on Whatsapp Family groups.

The Simblified trio look at the history of the law, and laws pertaining to homosexuality around the world (including some surprising countries where it's legal and illegal).

Ep. 101: Window Shopping: European Football Transfer Windows Explained

SimblifiedEpisode101.png

Football (or Soccer as the ingrates across the Atlantic call it) sees some ridiculous amounts of money thrown around. Like PSG paid €198 million (over 1700 crore INR) for Neymar but despite spending the annual GDP of a smallish country for a bloke who can kick a ball somewhat well, they can only make the transfer during a specific window of 3 months - which is the football transfer window.
Join the Simblified trio is understanding the quirks of how the transfer window rules work across European football and how the English did a Brexit-style idiocy in their transfer window timings for this season.

Ep. 100: #Simblified100 the Live Recording feat. Amit Varma and Varun Duggirala

SimblifiedEpisode100.png

Woohooo! We collectively raise our podcasting bats towards the crowd, who we affectionately call the MBA of Simblified listeners (to recall the collective term). For we have reached our century!

To celebrate, we did a live recording at Doolally, Khar on Aug 25! What's more shocking is that people actually turned up to see us make total arses of ourselves! It was a fabulous couple of hours, and you get here is an edited version of the show.

We talk about fake news - the history, the origins, we do an Irish drinking song, and we speak with the man who runs one of India's best podcasts, The Seen And The Unseen - Amit Varma! We also speak to Varun Duggirala of digital agency The Glitch - about content in the 21st century and why some things become more popular than others, and what the future holds.

The show was one of the most fun things the 3 of us have ever done! But we start off with the origins of Simblified and how a random idea about a music podcast with me and another friend led to the, um, well, whatever Simblified is today.

The three hosts would like to personally thank everyone who's ever been involved on the show - from our producers (Siddhant, Vageesh, Navin and long-suffering Abbas), the sound guys and graphic folks and everyone else at IVM podcasts (esp. Amit and Mae!), and of course - you people who listen and give us feedback and even read these descriptions.
