Episode 150

Everybody Loves Novak (with Aleks Milinkovic)

We’ve gone back to back guests and this week we’ve got a huge one - we welcome Sydney comedian Aleks Milinkovic onto the podcast. Before we get around Aleks, Migs and Sen reminisce about their trip to the Lakemba Ramadan night markets, dropping absolute hot takes along the way.

Ro then tells the boys about his new obsession for the week, this time it’s getting himself into the Guiness Book of World Records.

We then reach around our guest Aleks, hearing about his rareness through street sign superstitions as well as an awkward run in with a legendary Australian comedian. We explore his Serbian upbringing, his strong sense of nationalism, a suss character from a play and a town planner with the same name.

“Questions Only” is back this week as we try to test Aleks’ (and the boy’s) improv skills. In case you forgot how this game works, the boys are placed in a scenario and the only way to move forward in the game is to ask questions.

There is added danger in the first round as well, with the loser forced to try a hot chilli spray with over 1.8 million scoville units - who will be the unlucky man?

Also this week: Deer Burgers, useless world records, Vageen and Satan's Spit.

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.

The Reach-Around: To show gratitude and respect to our guest, and like all good hosts should do, the boys get around the guest in the most homoerotic segment in podcasting.

Questions Only: The lads are placed in various random situations, and can only progress in the game by asking questions only.

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.
