The Origin of Things or TOOT for short is a podcast hosted by Deepak Gopalakrishnan AKA Chuck. You might have heard him on another IVM show called 'Simblified', but on the much shorter and crisper TOOT he focuses on the origin story of various things. For starters, we're going to be looking at the origin stories of world famous brands. But there's a catch -- Chuck will tell you the fascinating story, little by little dropping some hints, but the brand is only revealed at the very end. Will you be able to beat Chuck at guessing the brand? Find out by tuning into a new episode every Wednesday on the IVM Podcasts Network.

My first podcast series ..

The format of leading us to keep guessing the company was fun . Waiting for the second season .

Good season 1

Hey Chuck, good going man.

Insightful stories and facts. Look forward for season 2 with more episodes.

Worth every second

I wait for their next edition to come out. Very informative, engaging and listening to the narrator is a delight. The perspective shared is totally unique and keeps you hooked till the last second.

Wish the frequency was higher though. But that’s the problem with creating good content.

Kudos. 5 stars.
