We speak to Simblified fan (!) and microbiologist Avraneel Paul on a whole bunch of things related to what happens inside our body! Viruses and bacteria, how vaccines work, how those WBC badasses keep us safe, and so on. Along the way, we also speak about exciting advancements like CRISPR, and explore philosophical questions like whether Covid has changed the field... And what a day in the life of a scientist looks like. There's loads of trivia, loads of simblification and a few bad jokes as well in this two-part episode. We hope you like it and have renewed appreciation for scientists (and your body!) after it! Add one part news, one part bad jokes, one part Wikipedia research, one part cult references from spending too much time on the internet, one part Wodehouse quotes, and one part quality puns, and you get Simblified. A weekly podcast to help you appear smarter, to an audience that knows no less! Your four hosts - Chuck, Naren, Srikeit, and Tony attempt to deconstruct topics with humor (conditions apply). Fans of the show have described it as "fun conversations with relatable folks", "irreverent humor", "the funniest thing to come out of Malad West" and "if I give you a good review will you please let me go".
