Episode 86

Virgin Hedge Funds vs Chad Redditors

Massive week this week, as Kushagra is currently on suicide watch after putting his life savings in GME. Unfortunately for him, the ASX listed GME has very little to do with the American game store chain, meaning Kushagra is currently on the run from loan sharks and is unable to join us this week.

We begin with a moral discussion, as we hear the tale of a foolish individual who returned an extra mattress that had been delivered to them mistakenly. After we all very quickly realised this isn't much of a moral dilemma, we dive deep into the biggest news story of the week, Gamestop. Many news outlets have discussed and analysed this modern day Robin Hood to death, but now three idiots with little to no financial acumen decide to give their two cents on this David vs Goliath battle.

To coincide with the return of school, Sen has decided to test the boys' knowledge of things they should’ve learned in high school, in a series of quizzes we’re creatively calling “Back to School.” In the second “Back to School” quiz, the boys are tested on their history knowledge.

Finally this week, we revisit #AskTCB, answering listener questions which have been sent in via Instagram, YouTube and the TCB Appreciation Society. This week's debaucherous questions involve dick pics, cannibalism, high school, relationship breakdowns and racism.

Also this week: Stonks, JFK, Marco Polo, wangs and casual racism vs full time racism.

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.

#AskTCB: Listeners write in, the boys try their best to answer their questions.

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.
