Episode 186

The Snack Savant

Fresh out of China covid lockdown, Kushagra graces us with his presence for this second episode of 2023. Kushagra reveals a new instagram account focused on movie reviews which he’s been working on during his annual leave from the podcast. After flogging that for a bit, we then get our weekly Rohit first world problem - this week it’s tipping culture in Hawaii. Unfortunately, Ro did not appreciate the performative art the waiters had to put on to earn their tip, instead he would prefer they just earned a below minimum wage salary.

Our game this week is for our fellow degenerate gambling listeners with “Overs / Unders.” Pretty simple game, where the boys must figure out how many of a certain thing there is by determining if it is over or under an arbitrary number. In this edition the boys ponder Maccas stores in Australia, number of chips in a bag and how many beers they’ve had in their life amongst others.

Finally we end this week with some mathematics with “BODMAS.” By mathematics we of course mean a NCAA March Madness / FIFA World Cup Round of 16 inspired bracket tournament segment, where this week we put head to head the 16 most popular cuisines in the world.

Also this week: @Mr Zorba Smith, 18% service tip and what is Bulgarian food?

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.

Overs / Unders: The boys are given a category and an arbitrary number and must guess if there are overs or unders on that number.

BODMAS: Our bracket tournament style segment where 16 competitors battle it out to 1 eventual winner.

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.
