Successful negotiations between Australia and Mexico sees Rohit triumphantly return to join the holy foursome of Critical Banter. This week, desperate first years and defeated fifth years alike descend on Universities across Australia, gearing up for another year of late night cramming, stress-fueled benders and group project shenanigans.
Unfortunately for first year students, it won’t be long until their hopes and dreams are dashed, as they discover that: 1. The girl that sat next to them will not be their future wife, 2. Their HECS debt will follow them all the way to the grave and 3. Working at the Big 4 will not fill the empty void where happiness once was, nor will it win you the love and respect of your friends and family.
Fortunately for them, this week's episode can numb this pain as Sen demonstrates his knowledge of STDs, Kush highlights his passion for train stations, Miguel clarifies his views on Mardi Gras, and Rohit lays the foundation of gender-neutral engineering.
Also this week: Spy Kids 4D, cancelling Ke$ha, university cults, disintegrating coins, and Vermouth.
Segments this week:
Global Reach Around: 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.
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.
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.
Trivia of the Week: As if listening to this podcast wasn’t mind numbing enough, the boys leave you with one last piece of useless information to end the show.
