Episode 153

What Are You Doing Step-Bulbasaur?

Everyone has left us this week. No Ro, no Kush, no guest, no hope. Migs and Sen left scrambling to put together an episode, and wowee is this one a doozy. As usual, we start with some biting political satire, ripping apart the electoral process along the way. We then discuss NFT’s, like every other podcast, except this one is NBA trading card related which does somewhat interest the boys.

We get our first taste of this week’s insanity with “Pokemon Smash or Pass,” with the boys deciding if they would fornicate with cute animated animals or not. In reality, this should be a very simple answer, except the boys really delve deep into this, leading to very suss results.

Finally today, Migs and Sen get to do a segment they’ve been wanting to do for a long time, “Start, Bench, Sell.” This week, we dish out hot takes on football players and teams and even answer the age old question - Scholes, Lampard or Gerrard?

Also this week: democracy sausage, Ultimate Team, harden and who is the GOAT?

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.

Pokemon Smash or Pass: A modern twist on the classic game Smash or Pass, but instead the boys rate Pokemon.

Start, Bench, Sell: Simple premise, you are given 3 players and you must decide to start one, bench one and sell one.

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.
