Episode 58

Choking & Shaking

As parts of Australia begin to head back into lockdown amid the dreaded second wave of Coronavirus, here at Critical Banter we’ve gone in the opposite direction as Kush has finally left his house for the first time in months.

To begin this week’s episode we discuss face masks, twitter hacks and the state of Australian TV where things get a bit personal between Kush and Rohit. Finally we end the segment with a classic chat about simps as one of the boys parks the bus and defends their actions.

“Finish the Lyric” makes a somewhat triumphant return to the podcast this week after a few months in the wilderness (mainly due to Sen and Kush’s shambolic effort in the first edition of this segment). This time around, however, Rohit joins the boys and the songs are heavily catered to the boys' niche, and questionable taste in music - it was impossible for the boys to stuff this up.

We end this week’s episode with a new segment, “Not All Heroes,” where we recount epic tales of unlikely heroes and individuals who have had to step up to the plate in a time of need. In this inaugural edition, Sen steals his coworker’s story of greatness in High School, before Rohit somehow tries to make himself the hero of a story regarding domestic violence. Safe to say neither stories contained any actual heroes.

Also this week: Sri Lankan Dick Pics, Simps, Jungle and The Shaker.

Segments this week:

The Logue: Tired of reaching around each other (at least on the podcast), the boys have instead decided to reach around the week’s news stories, events and viral trends.

Finish the Lyric: A game where you finish the lyric.

Not All Heroes: In this segment we pay tribute to the average Joes and true blue everyday battlers who stepped up when needed.

Critical Banter

Established by 4 high-school friends in 2018, Critical Banter was formed through a shared love of comedy, entertainment and gaming. The launch of the podcast in 2019 was, at first, to validate their humour beyond their family and friends.

Now, The Critical Banter Podcast is a fast-growing comedy podcast that emulates the feel of late-night shows and engages heavily with their listeners to create relatable content - including story-telling, games and Q&As.
