Ep. 106: Firehose of Falsehoods
15/10/2018 by IVM Podcasts
Ever wonder why JNU is such a big issue when there is never any proof? Or why so much conversation about Trump’s inauguration crowd sizes when obviously the grounds were empty?
We live in an era of deception and blatant lying by those in power. In these bleak times, our Simblified trio attempt to understand the new vehicle of the post truth era – Firehosing.
We attempt to understand the modus operandi and characteristics of how those in power try to mislead the masses and how we can look through these lies. 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. For more awesome IVM podcasts,find us at:
Cheh, I’ve forgotten almost all about this episode.
The major point of interest (but I’ve forgotten details) was the proposed strategies against firehosing, and I wonder which of them will work.
