Episode 117

Donda = Overrated

Another week, another episode. Despite Sen ghosting the boys for the second week straight and dodging 214 missed calls from Rohit alone, the show must go on.

As has been tradition on the podcast recently, this week's episode starts with a cowardly ambush to blind side Miguel. Kush, calmer in tone but more hurt in spirit, "exposes" Miguel for once again galivanting around with the very person he lambasted on the podcast for breaking lockdown rules.

The only thing of note to come of this overdone saga is Miguel's new TikTok career - with his first TikTok attracting over 2.5 million views (check it out at @miggybrahhh on TikTok). Will he leave the boys for a solo career or will he show them loyalty for once - stay tuned to find out!

The other update for the week is Rohit putting pet food to the (taste) test and seeing if its taste matches its humanised branding. The boys aren't sure what's more unsurprising - the results of this experiment or the fact that Rohit actually went out of his way to buy & prepare pet food for his own dinner.

The game for this week sees the return of Timeline Time Machine. Slight tweak this time round as the boys go through their old messages to each other and guess who sent it. A great idea in theory, however in reality, the boys were very, VERY careful with the messages they chose and there was some very questionable and highly cancelable language used back in the day.

To cap off the episode, Overrated/Underrated also makes a triumphant return. Without Sen to bring forth stupid ideas such as water being underrated, you'd think there would be a sense of normality.

Unfortunately, that was not the case as Rohit shows his age with his topics of live sport and stretching, whilst Miguel, in what can only be described as a move to further alienate himself from the audience, provides his hot takes on Cristiano Ronaldo and Kanye West's new album Donda.

Also this week: Jump scares, roast chicken, grafting, Othello, KSI & SIUUUUUU.

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.

Timeline Time Machine: We take a trip down memory lane in this game as they boys try and guess their old social media posts.

Overrated/Underrated: This segment is as simple as it sounds; the boys give their opinions on what they think is overrated in the world and what they think is underrated.
