Ep. 78 (Rebroadcast): The Russian Moscow-rade that was the US Elections!

SimblifiedEpisode78RB.png

Hey there! We couldn't make it to the studio this week, so here's an old episode again!
Given what L'Orange did in Finland, it's worth re-looking at how the Russians meddled in the US Elections. And given Putin gifted Trump a football that apparently has a chip inside, we might re-re-broadcast this in the future, who knows.

For now, enjoy.

Even if you haven't been following global politics in the last couple of years, you will know two things:
1. Trump is president (yes, sorry, that was not a bad dream)
2. Russia poked its nose in the elections

This week, the intrepid hosts of your favourite Malad-based podcast risk their lives as they do investigative journalism, deep into the Wikipedia article called 'Russian interference in the 2016 US Elections' to bring you this lowdown as to what actually happened, and importantly, why. We end with some glorious puns which will make you wish it was Chuck who was hacked, instead of the Democrats.

Check out this educational episode about how Trump won thanks to the Russians, and why the hosts think that Russia's efforts are actually the best example of 'content marketing' ever executed.

What's Simblified again?

Ep. 75: A look back at 2017 - Part 3: A.I, #metoo and Climate Change

SimblifiedEpisode75.png

Like Lord of the Rings & The Matrix, all good things must come to an ending in their third part. So we end our depressing trilogy of the 2017 rewind with a look at how artificial intelligence made some interesting leaps over the year. Then, we look at how a sleazeball named Harvey was the best thing to happen to feminism since it got the whole world talking. And then, we round up our talking about depressing matters with cheerful news - none of it really matters, because climate change will ensure we won't have a planet in a few years anyway. So go ahead, break that FD and partay!

Simblified is an Indian podcast brought to you by three fine young gentlemen - Chuck (@chuck_gopal), Srikeit (@srikeit) and Naren (@shenoyn). Say hello to us on Twitter! We aim to break down things to make you appear smarter. We succeed, sometimes.

Ep. 69: The World is (North) Korea-lly screwed!

SimblifiedEpisode69.png

We discuss the the crazy dictatorship that is North Korea, home to the Little Rocketman that could and a whole bunch of bizarre and scary laws. We delve into why Korea got this way, what's their beef with the US and why they're treating non-proliferation norms like Delhites treated the cracker. Tune in to hear why poop theft is a big deal in North Korea and why Kim Jong-Un's temper may be because he's having a bad trip.
And if the nukes have already launched by the time you get this and you've got no time for the whole episode, just skip to the end where Chuck and Srikeit (and sadly no Naren) perform an Irish Drinking Song for our North Korean overlords.
