Episode 174

Sydney's Best Suburbs (Controversial)

Backstreet’s back this week and we start with an update from Sen. When he’s not sending threatening DM’s to celebrities on Instagram, he spends his time replying to wrong number texts. As a follow up to last week, Sen provides an update on his back and forth with a random number which sees another member of the podcast get involved - leading to an awkward love triangle.

We then celebrate Northern Mariana Islands brave 23-0 loss to the Socceroos U-17 in what can only be described as yet another example of atrocities against minorities committed by Australians.

We got another new improv game this week, “Yes, and.” Premise is quite simple, the boys are placed in a scenario and the only way to move forward in the game is by using sentences beginning with the phrase “yes, and.” You’d think we’d be getting better at these games the more we play them.

Finally we end with the “TCB Draft,” where like the NBA draft, we take turns picking our top 5 Sydney suburbs we would choose to start a new city with. Once a suburb has been chosen, the others may not choose that suburb, leading to some very questionable and rogue picks.

Also this week: Shay’Lee, American Samoa and the Tuscan Hills of Western Sydney.

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.

Yes, and: Improv game where each scenario must be continued with a sentence starting with “Yes, and…”

TCB Draft: The boys give their top 5 draft picks based on a category where the others cannot select something that has been picked by one of the others.

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.
