Ep. 128: How does the internet travel around the world?

SimblifiedEpisode128.png

In our last episode, we looked at the differences between the internet and the WWW. In this episode, we take things a step further by figuring out how exactly Facebook & Google, located in California - comes here to India. The answer, it turns out, is through a series of really long underwater cables, each of which is thinner than your hair (really!). The Simblified trio tell you all you need to know about how the internet whizzes around the world, in this shortie. Enjoy!

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.
