Episode 118

The 118th Episode Spectacular

This week’s episode is dedicated to the fans. Few weeks back we put a poll up on the TCB Appreciation Society, asking fans which segments they wanted to see. Many of you voted and this week we bring to you an episode as decided by the fans. Before we get into it, Sen has overcome his IT issues, potentially starting a race war in the process.

After 2 weeks in the wilderness, he comes back with a rant about hobby Instagram accounts and, in particular, dog Instagram accounts. Kush also revisits last week’s incident featuring Miguel and his TikTok’s as we will soon be bidding farewell to Miguel as he embarks on his TikTok solo journey.

Our game this week, as many of you wanted, is “Bullslut.” This week the boys are tested on their geographical skills, etymological skills, knowledge of holiday’s, culinary knowledge amongst other things. This is a game of intelligence, skill, bluffing and strategy - attributes none of us really have.

A concerning number of you also wanted an update on Kush's learner's license logbook on "Logbook Watch" so here it is. How many kilometres has Kushagra driven in the two years since we've done this segment? How many hours has Kushagra logged in the various lockdowns that has happened since? Tune in to find out.

By far the most popular segment choice is the ever reliable “TCB Debate.” This week’s debate topics see Rohit’s research extend only as far as Spotify, Miguel quotes his favourite artist and Kush makes a startling confession.

Also this week: day drinking, all spice, Uzbekistan, xylophones and Blade Runner.

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.

Bullslut: Thought writing 3 essays in 2 hours was hard? Try naming 20 European countries in 30 seconds. This is the game where, in 30 seconds, the boys try to name as many things as they can - all within a category chosen by the host.

Logbook Watch: Join us as we document Kushagra’s painstaking journey to attaining a drivers licence. Listen as Kushagra recounts every kilometre he drives across this vast, beautiful continent of ours. Be amazed as Kushagra takes us on this physical, metaphysical and spiritual journey, where he discovers foreign new places, interesting people and creates a lifetime of cherished memories.

TCB Debate: Inspired by the Presidential debates, the boys decide to argue like old men without the interrupting.

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.
