Kushagra is still not with us, as he’s currently in talks to replace Jeff Bezos as Amazon’s CEO. In his absence, we begin this week with one of Rohit’s favourite topics, the notion of individual glory vs team success. We discuss whether we prefer to achieve individual success but the team loses or fail miserably but at least the team wins. There are differing opinions, but we all know which Rohit would prefer.
We then explore the possibility of Google leaving Australian shores with the prospect of using Bing, Yahoo or AskJeeves as alternatives. We also ponder whether we would be happy to pay for a subscription service to Google and Google products.
The “Back to School” quizzes continue and this week due to popular demand (Miguel), we have the maths quiz. Little surprise to see who wins the maths quiz between Miguel and Rohit, but nonetheless the boys are put through their paces with this quiz.
Finally this week, we introduce a new segment, “Squeeze Every Penny,” where we discuss the most heinous acts of stinginess. This week we explore individuals with lavish apartments but no furniture, before Rohit recounts his experience of a stinge at the supermarket deli.
Also this week: AskJeeves, Pythagoras, trigonometry, precious ice-cream and ham.
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.
Back to School: To celebrate the beginning of a new academic year, the boys are put through their paces to determine if they still remember anything they were taught in high school.
Squeeze Every Penny: In this segment we dob in the most stingiest individuals we have encountered.
