No this episode is not about Simblified listeners. Rather it’s about a bunch of Indians who live in the North Sentinel island in the Andamans. They’ve recently been in the news for re-acquainting a Christian missionary with God when he tried to convert them. We attempt to simblify this 21st century stone age community’s habits, language and of course, the so-called civilised world’s rather uncivil behaviour with them.

Fun and fascinating. The Simblified crew put together all the disparate things about the Sentinel Island in one place: the wreck of the Primrose, the creepy British administrator who used to make the Sentinelese zoo specimens; and the the various Indian anthropologists who did get to interact with the Sentinelese.

Mild abuse for Srikeit though for thinking that humans were around at the time of Pangaea.

And my sympathies are with the Sentinelese who danced gleefully when one of their arrows plugged somebody in the leg.
