    Boba's Your Uncle

    Boba's Your Uncle

    Kush, Sen and Migs are in high spirits this week as Ro has gone walkabout and unfortunately misses this week. As the boys rejoice, we begin discussing office Christmas parties and how much you can really drink at these sorts of events.
    Miguel then recounts his run-in with a rare individual on a night out. After seemingly being racially abused by a stranger, Miguel is then offered money as reparations by the very same individual.
    Our “Black Friday Quiz” this week is a 2 parter. The first part revolves around the most famous Black Friday - Friday by Rebecca Black. After answering some questions about a song that came out 10 years ago, the boys then answer some “Price is Right” style questions featuring the weirdest Black Friday sales available on Amazon.
    Finally we end with a new segment “D and S,” where we equip ourselves with chains and whips in the most sexually depraved segment yet. In layman's terms, we asked our listeners to give us their go to bubble tea (boba for the yanks) orders and we review and rate them based on taste, authenticity and whatever BS metrics we could think of.
    Also this week: Tenpin bowling, yachts, hamster swings and oolong.
    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.
    Black Friday Quiz: In honour of the yearly tradition of buying heavily discounted items, the boys partake in a quiz which tests their knowledge of this holiday.
    D and S: The listeners SUBMIT their various orders and we DOMINATE them, which obviously means we rate and review them.

    R****b Betrayal

    R****b Betrayal

    The boys are rattled this week as they try to recover from the most disrespectful slight they’ve ever encountered. Something foul is afoot (pun intended) as the boys unpack their weeks, beginning with an update on Ro’s moving out adventure.
    Next Sen and Miguel recount what can only be described as one of the all-time great mugging offs - the boys were fuming.
    Next we bring back the always popular “Bullslut,” with this week's edition featuring a wide range of topics such as fast food joints, muscles, NBA players, dog breeds and the Greek alphabet. Will Kush finally be good at this game? (spoilers: he’s not).
    Finally we end with “Mind Your Manners,” where we analyse some everyday scenarios and the etiquette surrounding them. This week's scenarios include phone call etiquette, payment etiquette and free mattress etiquette.
    Also this week: Feet pics, sigma, Steve Nash, glutes and frozen yoghurt.
    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.
    Bullslut: Thought writing 3 essays in 2 hours was hard? Try naming 20 European countries in 30 seconds. This is the game where, in 30 seconds, the boys try to name as many things as they can - all within a category chosen by the host.
    Mind Your Manners: The boys discuss the dos and don’ts and correct etiquette to help you out of your next awkward social scenario.

    The Love Gurus

    The Love Gurus

    This week begins with a continuation of a discussion on last week’s episode - boomerangs. After Kush’s riveting rant, Ro announces he is looking to finally leave the Ninan estate. The boys then discuss what they look for when renting, which reveals some quirky living habits from the boys. There are discussions of toilets, cooktops and shower stools.
    Our new game this week is “Family Fight,” where the lads put their familial and ancestral reputation on the line. The game works the same as another game with a similar name - the boys are asked questions which were previously presented to the average Joe. Which family will come out on top?
    Finally this week is “Unsolicited, Unqualified and Uncomfortable,” where we give our expert opinion on relationship questions submitted by fans. Before we dive in, we begin with an exciting update about our favourite friend Harry - we are truly miracle workers. We then help some of our listeners including a high school romance gone wrong and a rather incestuous workplace.
    Also this week: Boomers, shoeboxes, janitors and communists.
    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.
    Family Fight: The boys are pitted head to head to head, fighting for family pride and eternal glory. The boys are quizzed on opinions or expectations that were previously asked in a survey before the show to see how in touch they are with the common person.
    Unsolicited, Unqualified and Uncomfortable: Having relationship issues or need some advice regarding your relationship? Well, who better to give advice than four very single blokes.

    Into The Metaverse

    Into The Metaverse

    Big episode this week which begins with a few apologies. Sen apologises for bailing on last week’s episode as well as not giving out a tip for the Melbourne Cup, costing one listener tens of dollars. We have our usual annual Melbourne Cup chat, before Sen recounts an impromptu cuck or be cucked tale during his Friday night out.
    Lastly, from his week, Sen plays a voicemail he received during the week - 1 BBC coin if any listener can translate the message. Finally, to wrap up the logue, we end with an in depth, concerningly long discussion about feet pics and the nuances of the feet pic fetish.
    To commemorate the MelBourne Cup, the boys played a simple game this week called “Fragrance or Foal.” Sen gives the boys a name and they must work out if it's the name of a perfume on sale at Chemist Warehouse or a previous winner of the Melbourne Cup.
    Finally, we end the episode with a fan favourite segment “Compare and Contrast” where we debate and rank various things, this week we tier popular social media platforms.
    We analyse various different platforms based on community, user interface and sheer nostalgia points. From Instagram to Chatroulette, we remember the good times and not so good times of using these platforms.
    Also this week: #NupToTheCup, Eastern Bloc, Sweet and Sultry Pork and El Nigerio.
    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.
    Fragrance or Foal: The boys are given a name and must decipher if its the name of a perfume or a Melbourne Cup winning horse.
    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.

    Big Balls Bonanza

    Big Balls Bonanza

    This week’s episode starts in familiar fashion, with an inordinately drawn out hypothetical that eventually leads to no actual conclusion. This week’s conundrum revolves around balls. The hypothetical gets increasingly convoluted as the story unravels resulting in the boys even being left confused by their own creation. Not to mention the fact that the word “ball” was mentioned more than 50 times in the space of 9 mins.
    We got a new game this week, “Questions Only.” Premise is quite simple, the boys are placed in a scenario and the only way to move forward in the game is to ask questions. If they can’t think of a question fast enough, they are out but they are allowed one get out of jail free card. From teachers to batman and soft penises, this game takes the boys to some strange and dark places.
    Finally, we end this week with another new segment “Change My Mind,” where the boys defend their most outrageous and controversial opinions. This week the boys debate microtransactions, the value of KBBQ, are McFlurry’s the GOAT and discussing the oral health benefits of brushing before or after eating.
    Also this week: Ballception, pumps, nonces, Jim Carrey, 2K20 and Maccas.
    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.
    Questions Only: The lads are placed in various random situations, and can only progress in the game by asking questions only.
    Change My Mind: It's no secret that the boys have some controversial views, in this segment they defend their most controversial views.

    Cocktober

    Cocktober

    Absolutely huuuuuge week this one is. Firstly, we are back in person after a 4 month absence, and it feels great to be back. Next up, we debut our new studio, Rodecaster, neon sign and all - be sure to check us out on YouTube for the ultimate viewing experience.
    Finally as well, given we are in late October, we dedicate this week’s episode to the ever growing tradition that is Halloween. To begin the Halloween extravaganza, Migs recounts his horror story from during the week before Ro tells us of his Halloween mishap.
    The lads don’t know much about many things, so this week’s game is Halloween trivia. We take a stroll down memory lane, going back to the very origins of Halloween itself.
    Finally, in classic Halloween tradition, we end the episode with “Scary Stories with Sen.” Sen kicks us off with a time honoured tale of spookiness and lust before Kush brings us home with a chilling tale of an experiment gone wrong.
    Also this week: Mars, massages, Bram Stroker and Dimitri.
    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.
    Halloween Trivia: The boys learn about the history of Halloween and answer some questions along the way.
    Scary Stories with Sen: The boys share the scariest Halloween stories they’ve come across.
