Episode 164

What's Wrong with Kim Jong? (with Dan Cawthorne)

This week we welcome back only our second repeat guest (says more about us really) - Sydney comedian Dan Cawthorne. However, before we reunite with Dan, Karan Kundra (Kush’s Karen alter ego) provides us with an update with his ongoing, albeit one-sided, feud with local Sydney Italian restaurant chain, Fratelli Fresh. After we entertain Karan for a bit, Ro then reveals the peculiar purchases and behaviours of his new Spanish downstairs neighbours.

Next up is our interview with Dan. We check in with how he’s going and what’s new since we last spoke 6 months ago before we launch into discussing the real hard hitting topics such as rogue dreams, what constitutes a sandwich and how much would it take for you to endorse a dictator.

Finally, we bring back “Bullslut” this week as Sen puts Kush, Ro and Dan head to head in this classic game. Kush has a tragically bad record in this game, having never won a single edition of this game. Today he plays for his pride, his family and his country - can he finally get a win over Ro and Dan?

Also this week: Blackmail, Walter White, dildo’s, tsunamis and Kim Jong Un.

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.

The Reach-Around: To show gratitude and respect to our guest, and like all good hosts should do, the boys get around the guest in the most homoerotic segment in podcasting.

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.

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.
