Kushagra is back this week after helping dislodge the ship in the Suez Canal. Episode 95 of the Critical Banter Podcast begins with a discussion about pets, with a few notable updates. Rohit has finally gained legal ownership, ending a meaningless 9 month Mexican standoff with the previous owner.
In other pet news, self proclaimed dog hater Miguel also got his own new puppy Dmitri (name still pending) - follow Miguel on Instagram for dog related content. Finally, to celebrate the coming and going of April Fool’s Day, we reminisce about past pranks that we have seen/heard.
The game this week is “Language Loop,” where famous movie quotes are translated through Google translate to multiple languages and the boys must guess the original quote and movie. This week, the quotes are translated to English - Spanish - Serbian - Afrikaans - English.
Another new segment this week with “Analyse and Evaluate”, where the boys are given obscure and rather nonsensical music lyrics and are asked to derive their own meaning of these lyrics. The lads tackle The Killers, Bruno Mars, the Black Eyed Peas and modern philosopher Hilary Duff amongst others.
Also this week: Romanian 3rd Division Football, Saddam Hussein, The Passion of Christ, Archimedes and Craig.
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.
Language Loop: Famous movie quotes are put through the ringer in Google translate, converted into multiple languages and the boys have to guess the original quote.
Analyse and Evaluate: The boys dig deep and try to discover the true meaning to nonsensical musical lyrics.
