Hosted by the ultimate average joe Afiq Yusaini, he invites his friends over to talk about different stuff. Life, love, whatever man. He wants to provide a sensory audio experience, with equal parts of verbal rubbish. Tune in as they discuss, ramble, rant, and engage in opinionated discourse. Among other things, lah. Join him on his quest to perfect the art of conversation, one dumb anecdote and one dead pause at a time. Uncensored, uncultured, unadulterated. Disclaimer: This podcast is not for babies or 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘤𝘪𝘬𝘴.

#5: The Idiot's Guide to Toxic Relationships, Red Flags and Self-Enlightenment

Friend and guest “Fakrol” joins this episode fresh from his own experiences in a toxic relationship. The boys also share their experiences dealing with the emotional aftermath that comes after dabbling in such entanglements. They also talk about the importance of honesty, self-love, knowing one’s worth and the lessons one could stand to gain. The boys tell it as it is. They’re no Thought Catalog. This is our most serious episode, you guys. We’re talking about some super deep-seated issues of the heart stuff here. Raw, personal, and broken English.
#4: We Are Singkahpore, Singkahporeans
In this episode, Naz returns! This time as the official co-host of the podcast. This episode celebrates the nation’s 55th birthday as the boys ramble about what they love about the country, typical National Day traditions, and what’s potentially different about this year’s celebrations amid these trying Coronavirus times.

(Our sincerest apologies as this episode had some audio, staticky noise interferences in the background. Bopian ah.)
#3: Dating Apps and Afiq Got Catfished?!
In this episode, Afiq invites one of his best friends Naz to talk about dating apps and their place in society today. The boys share their dating app experiences: Naz shares his experience using Muslim dating app Muzmatch, and Afiq reveals his Tinder “game”. Afiq also shares one of the most harrowing, embarrassing and traumatic experiences in his life, getting catfished in his early online chatting up days on OkCupid. Naz brings the 𝘔𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘳𝘦𝘯 energy and the laughs in this episode while legends say that Afiq is still pretty much mentally disturbed by that incident.
#2: Mendak Energy
In this episode, the boys reflect on the feedback they've received from the pilot. They address the love, constructive comments, criticisms and the general consensus that Naufal seemingly exhibits dumb levels of "mendak energy" and isn't suited to host a podcast. “Mendak” is a colloquial, slang term in Malay, which essentially means boring. Afiq makes fun of one stupid feedback and then digresses into why he refuses to work in the F&B industry. Afiq also channels his inner a*****e and pokes fun at his co-host's many quirks: intonation, delivery, monotone voice, stench of "mendak energy" and infinite scowling. In response, Naufal goes on the defensive, desperate to make a mark. He strikes back and then mumbles about some other shit. Naufal calls this one his “redemption episode”. Also, his audio is better this time.
