We’re absolutely rolling through January, so here is another episode of Critical Banter to help you through your work week. Kushagra is not here this week, as he’s on a diplomatic pilgrimage to the US, to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration.
In his absence, the boys begin with a discussion on yet another example of Rohit idly standing by as someone is put into a dangerous scenario. After hearing about Rohit watching someone almost drown, we then discuss the name change of Australia’s most racist cheese before delving into a pumpkin and watermelon festival in northern NSW.
We introduce a new game this week called, “Guess the Brand,” which is as simple as it sounds where Sen gives Miguel and Rohit clues relating to a brand and they must try and guess the brand. This week’s edition features Japanese car makers, energy drinks, tech giants and the colonels nectar.
Finally this week, after almost a year in the wilderness, we bring back “Overrated/Underrated.” Rohit cancels fishing, Sen rants about bright headlights and has an epiphany about water and Miguel slams the McRib.
Also this week: Bystanders, pumpkins, pingers, kiddy fiddlers and the McRib.
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.
Guess the Brand: The boys are given 3 clues describing a very well known brand and must use these clues to guess the brand.
Overrated/Underrated: This segment is as simple as it sounds; the boys give their opinions on what they think is overrated in the world and what they think is underrated.
