Simblified

Author: IVM Podcasts

A  fortnightly podcast that explains things in the news to help you appear smarter, to an audience that knows no less -. Basically, we take topics and attempt to deconstruct them - using generous pilfering from Wikipedia, a bit of humour thats a flexible usage of the word, Wodehouse quotes and more. Occasionally, we invite guests who know better than us not a high bar to discuss fun careers and stuff.Hosted by three pun-loving madcaps who think Malad is the best thing since Android: Chuck, Naren and Srikeit.
