    Our Sex Cult: Coning, Biting and Homoerotic Writing

    Our Sex Cult: Coning, Biting and Homoerotic Writing

    Big week for the boys at TCB as we finally test out the cone theory, with surprising results, not to mention Kushagra also graces us with his presence. This week we begin with a quick recap and exclusive sneak peek at our coning adventures (be sure to also check out the full video on YouTube). We also get a story about a potential Karen and a small yappy dog and how to carry out revenge against terrible dog owners.
    New game this week as all the talk about psychos in the previous episode led Sen down a strange internet rabbit hole. As a result, the boys this week must guess if the Myers-Briggs personality type presented to them belongs to a certified psycho or to a functioning member of society, in a game we’re calling “Psycho or Samaritan.”
    Finally this week, another new segment as the boys delve deep into each other's psyche by answering some simple “Most Likely To” questions. Some questions prove to be straightforward to answer, whilst others cause division as tensions flare in this edition.
    Also this week: Bus hooligans, Hot Wheels, Mother Theresa, Cuban Military Bases and Fanfic.
    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.
    Psycho or Samaritan: The boys are given one of the MBTI personality traits and have to decide if this is the personality of a prominent psycho or everyday Samaritan.
    Most Likely To: The boys answer listener provided “Most Likely To” questions as we discover what the boys really think of each other.

    Grooming: An Artform

    Grooming: An Artform

    This week we welcome on board our new sponsors (and very good friends) at MANSCAPED. Kushagra, overcome with so much excitement, embarked on a 5 day bender and has not been seen since and as a result does not feature this week.
    Nevertheless, the other boys plow on and this week we begin with stories of being stuck, whether it be in the sand, in a cave or in a washing machine with your step-brother playing hide the zucchini. We also discuss a big week in sport and the records that were equalled with the boys coming to the conclusion that Rafael Nadal is incredibly overrated.
    “Answer Reddit” is back this week after a long hiatus. On this week’s edition we discuss psycho’s, nosey neighbours, terrible birthday gifts and a subtle, yet nuanced, discussion about conjoined twins (for the 50th time).
    We end this week with a new segment, “TCB Debate,” with the boys deciding that the world was finally ready to listen to us argue over inane topics. This week’s debate topics see Miguel choose to not get hit by a Toyota Hilux, Sen’s been watching too much “Drive to Survive” and Rohit finally makes a good joke.
    Also this week: Bubble Soccer, Terrorists, Hillsong, Go Karting and Ibrahimovic.
    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.
    Answer Reddit: Content creation is simple when you read questions off r/AskReddit (https://l.messenger.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Freddit.com%2Fr%2FAskReddit&h=AT3GcnDCbeWROds5WWDBq66TLZyTnHiHOqa2wcS80yvnIhnfp6wYjFMMkL0knsNwrdSpNxhZkAuV2J3IxGnazrvEUuLl-i--X-RZt__uh3scN9qC76ZbxTef8KvHXVNO7LNjYg).
    TCB Debate: Inspired by the Presidential debates, the boys decide to argue like old men without the interrupting.

    Carpark Karen

    Carpark Karen

    This week we reach a very important milestone in both the podcast history and in our own personal lives. That's right, we’ve reached Episode 69. Kushagra, however, is again in mourning this week as our glorious leader, President Donald J Trump tests positive for coronavirus, which we discuss in great detail. We also hear Rohit and Miguel’s driving adventures before Sen recounts his run in with a rare Uber driver.
    The always successful “Finish the Lyric” is back this week, despite both Rohit and Sen being abysmal at this game. This week the boys finish the lyric to iconic, lyrically complex songs from the 2010’s such as “Better Now,” “Someone You Loved” and “What Does the Fox Say?”
    We end this week with an old classic in Out of Touch. As previously established on this podcast, the boys are very out of touch with the common man and this week’s edition is no different. This week the boys discuss haircut frequency and prices and what's the best Apple device to view your pay tv subscription on?
    Also this week: Facebook Fan Page, Traffic Cones, Flexing Taxes, Ed Sheeran and Foxtel.
    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.
    Finish the Lyric: A game where you finish the lyric.
    Out of Touch: The boys discuss their own, or someone else’s, opinions or views which could be considered to be out of touch with the common person.

    Donut Domination

    Donut Domination

    Kushagra is in mourning this week after discovering Schoolies had been cancelled for 2020 - he is currently on the Gold Coast partying with other Toolies. Despite this tragic setback, the rest of the boys have picked up the slack in this week’s episode. We start with an update from our friend Jack from last week, before critically analysing the trials and tribulations of the Triwizard Shorenament.
    Sack whacking, turkey slapping, wet willying and cupcaking sound like a regular Tuesday night for the Critical Banter boys, but for the lads at Shore it was a matter of life and death in the Triwizard Shorenament. Other challenges included public nudity, public defecation and eating a live small animal (i.e. duck/wombat/alpaca). We also recount other famous muck up day stories and more recent muck up day examples.
    “The Spelling Bee” is back this week, and as per usual the boys are asked to spell the most outrageous and niche words Rohit could find on Urban Dictionary. This week’s words are as strange as ever, as both Miguel and Sen struggle their way through this segment, with both boys failing this test.
    This week ends with the always popular “Cuck or Be Cucked.” In this edition, Rohit recounts his very own story of his cucking before we dive into a listener submitted cuck. Both cucks are of epic proportions, with one particular cuck being awarded the highest ever amount of cuckatoo’s in this show's history.
    Also this week: Silly Salmon, Casual Racism, Mirai Nikki, Krispy Kreme and Table Tennis.
    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.
    The Spelling Bee: In this segment, the boys do their best impression of Indian American teenagers as they guess the spelling of Urban Dictionary words.
    Cuck or Be Cucked: Have you or your loved one been alpha’d recently? In this segment the boys give you tips on how to alpha those who have alpha’d you.

    Breadth, Intricacy & Depravity

    Breadth, Intricacy & Depravity

    Kushagra, fresh from the Anti-Lockdown protests, joins us for this week's episode as we begin with a number of updates. We get an update from lovestruck Liam, who was featured in last week’s episode, as well as an update on the great sauce debate, revealing the results from the midweek Instagram poll.
    Finally we end with an update from Eggboy, who’s undertaken an ambitious rebranding to become Australia’s Deepak Chopra, leading to a philosophical question - how does one become a motivational speaker?
    Literally nobody asked for it, but “Stockholm Syndrome” also makes a return, despite popular demand. This week the boys have to guess between IKEA products and Swedish NBA players. Needless to say, this segment will not be returning any time soon.
    Finally this week, we end with the old faithful, “Dob in a rare unit,” and this week the listeners have gone above and beyond, providing us with some truly rare specimens. We also get our first listener email, with this particular listener sending in an X-Ray as evidence. However, before we delve into the listener provided rare units, Sen dobs in one of the other boys for some incredibly odd behaviour.
    Also this week: Matchmaking, Slavery, Whiz Fizz, Waffle Stomping and Budweiser
    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.
    Stockholm Syndrome: This segment has nothing to do with actual Stockholm Syndrome, instead this is a game where the boys try to distinguish between IKEA products and NBA players.
    Dob in a Rare Unit: Are you a rare unit? Is your family full of rare units? Are your mates rare units? Is your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse a rare unit? If so, write into us and let us know the rarest thing they’ve done.

    Friend Zone Is My Religion

    Friend Zone Is My Religion

    Kush’s student visa extension request was denied this week and as a result he misses the episode due to him being currently on the run from the Department of Immigration - we wish Kush all the best in his endeavours. Back to the episode, and this week we begin with an update from Miguel and Rohit regarding their fitness challenge. We then read some hate comments from our ice-cream tier list, before we talk about sauce again.
    “What is the Question?” makes a return this week with Sen setting the boys some difficult answers to respond to, leading to Rohit producing one of the all time great questions in this segment’s history.
    Finally, we end with the fan favourite “Unsolicited, Unqualified and Uncomfortable,” with a few interesting stories sent in from listeners. We begin by helping Liam with his adventures in the friend zone, as the love guru Rohit assures him the friend zone isn’t the worst place to be. Secondly we help Angel with many of his problems, none of which seem to be relationship based.
    Also this week: Maxibon, Kim Kardashian, Wheel of Fortune and kneecaps.
    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.
    What is the Question?: The boys are presented with an answer and they have to guess what the question is - the most humorous answer wins.
    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.
