Episode 83

Kush Tests Positive

Many people have asked for it, and man-of-the-people Kushagra has delivered, gracing us with his presence for the first time in 2021. We begin this week as Kushagra fills us in with his whereabouts for the past 6 weeks, including tales of positive results, government building raids, and cock fighting training camps.

We then reminisce about Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon cards where we discover Kushagra’s signature scam, Rohit’s card mafia and Miguel reveals a special Charizard.

New game “Lost the Plot” this week where Sen reads out poorly written movie plots and the boys have to guess what the movie is. Resident cinephile, Kushagra, is the man to beat.

Finally this week we bring back the always controversial “Compare and Contrast.” On the chopping block this week are Australian chocolate. To absolutely no one’s surprise this segment descends into chaos, anarchy and controversy very quickly, as friendships are strained and tested. In the end, we were left divided as half the boys thought the list was quite accurate while the other half thought it was radical to say the least.

Also this week: US Capitol, Pawn Stars, Jack and Jill and Dentist appointments.

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.

Lost the Plot: A simple game where the boys have to guess the movie based on a poorly written plot description.

Compare and Contrast: Named in honour of our favourite HSC English essay questions, the boys debate the most pressing issues in society and attempt to agree on a ranked tier list, which may end up in broken friendships and definitely will end up being wrong.

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.
