Episode 256

The Unbeatable Texture (with Jacob from Thirsty Monkey)

Absolutely massive episode we got for you this week as we are joined by a very special guest. The king of acai himself, Jacob Najjar of Thirsty Monkey fame, joins us live in the studio. We discuss his successful Muay Thai career, opening up a gym, venturing into the world of cafes and acai and his grand vision for acai in Western Sydney. All in all, a super interesting chat with a very entertaining man.

As usual our game with our guest is “Bullslut,” as Jacob goes head to head against Rohit and Miguel. This week’s categories include Sydney suburbs, fruits, desserts and much more.

We end this week with a new segment, “TCB Tank.” This is our twist on Shark Tank, as each of the boys take turns pitching (fake) products to each other and Jacob. Ro has multiple ideas, one of which sounds like borderline human trafficking, Sen seems to be obsessed with posterior scratching and Miguel’s come up with a Black Mirroresque social trend app.

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.
