Episode 90

Rohit's Phobia

TCB is back again this week and much like Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine, we are 95% effective at talking about nothing. Kushagra’s gone walkabout this week, preparing for his cameo on this season’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

In his absence, Rohit begins with a rogue discussion on our collective phobias, before we applaud the triumphant return of Schapelle Corby into the Australian psyche. We end with a brief eulogy to the humble mullet, after it has been banned at yet another private school.

There is light at the end of the “Back to School” quiz tunnel, as this week we tackle Society and Culture (yes, this is a real subject). More specifically, Sen tests Rohit and Miguel’s knowledge on the Amish and on Buddhism.

We end this week with a new segment Hackerman, whereby we read out and analyse some of the more unethical life hacks we’ve come across. This week we discuss petty vandalism, minor assault, narcolepsy, gift card fraud and coal as a viable fuel source.

Also this week: Trypophobia, tango, Apple Chapel and eternal happiness.

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.

Back to School: To celebrate the beginning of a new academic year, the boys are put through their paces to determine if they still remember anything they were taught in high school.

Hackerman: At TCB we are committed to helping you find the shortcuts in life. More often than not, the advice we give is immoral and unconscionable. This segment is full of that advice.

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.
