Audio illusions are an interesting thing. It's when you think your boss said "Wow, amazing job, here's a 15% hike" when what she actually said was, "Holy crap, you're useless. You have 15 minutes to clear out". But apart from that, our brain works in amazing ways to conspire to make us hear and see things that actually don't exist. Fanny-Laurel is one such, and our sagacious hosts take you through several others as well. At the end of this episode, you will question reality, but hey, you listen to Simblified, so you already do, no harm done!

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 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.
