Episode 193

Wonky Words with Friends

The revolving door at TCB continues this week as Sen taps out and Ro and Kush sub back in. This week Kush is full of yarns and brings forth an interesting conundrum - asking the lads if they would accept a sports-like contract over their normal work contracts, even going to the extreme of hypothesising a 10 year contract at Maccas for $2.5m.

Then we are back to regular programming as Kush gets in his weekly plug of his movie review Instagram (@mrzorbasmith). He then floats a new Black Mirroresque review series for his regular page (@kushyyk) where he intends to review people on the pleasantness of their company.

Our game this week is “Wonky Words,” as we play the game “Contexto.” This game is very similar to Geoguesser as there is a secret word and with each subsequent guess of the word the game provides you with an indication of how close/far you are from the secret word. Very simple concept, incredibly difficult game.

“Compare and Contrast” is back this week. If you are new, this is where we debate and rank various things. This week we go nostalgic as we rank the best iPod touch games - from seminal classics such as Doodle Jump to the incredibly niche Flappy Bird.

Also this week: Doobie smoking, Ro’s sweet release on his knees, quandaries and Cocaine Bear.

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.

Wonky Words: We play the popular game “Contexto” - which is essentially a word guessing game.

Compare and Contrast: Named in honour of our favourite HSC English essay questions, the boys debate the most pressing issues in society and attempt to agree on a ranked tier list, which may end up in broken friendships and definitely will end up being wrong.

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.
