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. 74: A look back at 2017 Part 2: Of Covfefes and Cows

In 2017, palmistry became a legit thing in India, because one could tell how smart you were by checking how far your face was implanted into your face.

Yeah, it wasn't a particularly pleasant 2017 if you were:
1. In India
2. Were not dispossessed to waving non-football orange flags
3. Reasonably smart

Chuck, Naren and Srikeit look through a grim year in the country and discuss the effects of the trio of GST, Aadhaar and Demonetization and the larger ramifications for the country, not just political. In what might be the podcast's darkest episode, your three hosts inject levity by means of poor jokes and Trump-based comic relief. Don't worry, 2018 will be better (hey, if nothing else, Simblified will keep chugging along, there's still 0% GST on listening to podcasts!).
