The Critical Banter Podcast

Back again for 2022 and we begin with a massive revelation. The boys finally announce which one of us got covid and how they felt. Ro then asks the boys about bathrooms as he recounts a recent battle he had with a bathroom. We end as Sen gets another suss call from a scammer and we discuss the best ways to deal with scam calls and is it worth wasting their time. We have a new game this week, “TCB Top Ten.” Sen quizzes Ro and Mig's knowledge on various top ten lists - this week we tackle highest grossing movies, biggest football transfers, spotify streams and rich people. Making a triumphant return this week is “Red Flag Redemption.” Last week was all about red flags, this week we discuss icks which is one rung down from red flags. As usual, we discuss our own icks before jumping into listener submitted icks. Also this week: Birds, butterflies, Indian scammers, Thor Ragnarok and black jellybeans. 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. TCB Top Ten: In this game, the boys are given various top ten lists and they must name as many of the top 10 as they can. Red Flag Redemption: The boys dissect common red flags and discuss the validity of the toxicness, including some of their own red flags. ___________________________________________________ FULL PODCAST EPISODES

The Critical Banter Podcast

The boys are officially back in person for 2022! Straight off the bat there is a big reveal as one of the boys got Omicron over the Christmas break - but who was it? Rohit then proudly tells the boys he lived in a bus for a number of days which obviously resulted in confused looks from Miguel and Sen. After discussing bus life, the boys also discuss Novak Djokovic's legal battle with the Australian government which somehow leads to a discussion about being stabbed vs being shot. Continuing with the theme of Novak Djokovic and the Australian Open, our game this week is “Stockholm Syndrome.” This week the boys have to guess between IKEA products and tennis players. We have a new segment this week, “Red Flag Redemption.” Now arguably, all the lads on this podcast are walking red flags, therefore making us the best judges of red flags and supposed toxic traits. In this segment we discuss some of our own red flags as well as common red flags and decide if they are indeed worthy of being a red flag. Also this week: Novax, Tiny Homes, Swedish Baltic islands and astrology girls. 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. Red Flag Redemption: The boys dissect common red flags and discuss the validity of the toxicness, including some of their own red flags. ___________________________________________________ FULL PODCAST EPISODES

Rohit Raj, Entrepreneur, Producer, Manager, and Friend (as per his Instagram Bio; experienced and agreed) works with Bhuvan Bam very closely. You might also have heard “Rohit Raj BB ki Vines” somewhere if you follow Bhuvan Bam. #StorieswithRusty #RohitRaj #BBKiVines #CreatorEconomy #Producers We had a very insightful conversation about the space of creating content and being on such a big platform that your own channel can be known as a “platform” in itself. We discuss about the creator economy India and how it is growing or rather will grow in the future. We also come up with a new term called “Enabler Economy” which you will see in the episode. Apart from that, The ups and downs of experimenting, executing and launching the shows, music videos, and sketches. We also talk about how Bhuvan Bam worked with brands ethically and maintained his credibility and stayed true to his audience. Bhuvan Bam net worth is a big question on the internet but Rohit Raj also talks about how nobody in his close circle cares about making money as much as creating because money is always in the picture in long run. We also talk about the competition in the space and how all the creators like to call themselves Creator Partners rather than competitors. I think one of the things that stand out about Rohit is that he is an extremely loyal and trustworthy guy and building trust in the workplace is one of the most important and rather difficult tasks to do. __ In this Episode: 0:00 // Introduction, random chit chat 3:43 // What is the motivation of creators 6:59 // What happens when you are 27 11:10 // How is Rohit linked to Meerut? 12:45 // How Rusty met Rohit? 13:33 // How does Rohit manage his office? 18:13 // Rohit's Work Ethics 22:56 // How content is changing 28:36 // How brands have changed since 2016 34:48 // Bhuvan's Brand Integrations 54:33 // The Journey of Managing Forms of Content 1:03:03 // The Process of Producing Dhindora 1:11:05 // The Learning Process 1:13:28 // Advertisements on Traditional Media 1:19:07 // Helping other Creators 1:20:55 // The Bigger Achievements of Creating Content 1:23:50 // Independent Creators and Numbers 1:26:55// What's Next for Bhuvan 1:27:26 // How will Bhuvan Continue Creating Content 1:28:27 // Enabler Economy 1:36:08 // Itna Paisa 1:38:05 // Life after and before Marriage 1:39:03 // What does Rohit do when he is free? 1:39:49 // Does work get intimidating? 1:41:26 // The Brighter Side of Working Want more of it?

The boys strap in for the final time of 2021 - this week's episode is dedicated to reviewing the year that was. We seemingly end this year on a sombre note, with the grim spectre of Covid towering over us. Kush is absent this week as he is quarantining, meanwhile the other boys record in a socially distanced manner - mask and all. We begin with Rohit's holiday shenanigans as the man prepares to go to the most unvaxxed place in Australia. The boys then briefly run through their years and give us a rating for 2021. Our game this week is the always trusty “News or Not.” A quick recap, Sen reads out some outrageous headlines from 2021 and Ro and Migs have to decide if these are real news stories or indeed fake news. Finally, we end the episode with a fan favourite segment “Compare and Contrast” where we debate and rank various things, this week in keeping up with our theme, we rank the months of 2021. We go back through the archives, memory banks and camera roll and rank the months of the year on a scale of the Gregorian calendar to the Mayan calendar. Also this week: Covid conundrums, Byron Bay, Florida Man, woke coke and Freedom Day. 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. News or Not: With fake news as rampant as ever, the boys delve into some headlines and determine what is real and what is not the news. 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.

It's the most beautiful time of the year and the boys are full of festive joy and Christmas spirit. To get into the Christmas mood, join us for this Christmas/holiday extravaganza as we ramp up celebrations to everyone's favourite time of the year. We begin with the results of the boy's digital detox, with results varying massively, but overall the boys are still down horrendously bad. We then hear of the boys' Christmas party stories, as the boys experienced parties of varying levels - fortunately there were no career limiting moves this year (except Kush came close). This week's game is the “Holiday Quiz,” as the lads are pitted head to head on their festive knowledge. Being an inclusive podcast, the questions are diverse in nature, covering topics like Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and Christmas themed movies and songs. We end this week with “Dirty Little Santa,” which despite the deeply suggestive name has nothing to do with anything sexual. Instead in this segment we relive some of the worst Christmases in our past, which include terrible parties, even worse gifts and in Sen's case just downright bad driving. Also this week: $16 slushies, Zeus, Feliz Navidad, Hillsong and squid recipes. 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. Holiday Quiz: The boys are tested on their knowledge of the festive season and all things Christmas.

Programming Note: Anticipating The Unintended will be on its annual year-end break for the next two weeks. Normal services will resume from Jan 9, 2022. Happy Holidays.This is the last edition for 2021. There’s always a temptation to look back at the year gone and arrive at some kind of things-we-learnt-this-year list. As much as we’d like to do that, we really have nothing insightful to offer. It wasn’t a great year for most part because of the pandemic and it is ending on a foreboding note. Anyway, so what do we have in this year-end edition? We start with talking about the one overriding emotion that the two of us had through the year. What’s that one constant feeling that summed up our view of most events during the year? We then move on to the predictions we had made at the start of 2021 and see how each of us fared. And we close out with books, newsletters, podcasts or videos that we enjoyed greatly. That’s what is on the menu today.The 2021 State Of MindRSJ: Through the year my mind went back to the lines from one of my favourite poems, The Second Coming by W.B. Yeats. It is somewhat apposite too. Yeats wrote the poem just after WW-1 had ended and during the Spanish flu pandemic. His pregnant wife contracted the flu and survived after a harrowing time. Yeats paints a bleak landscape of disorder and anarchy with warring factions and a divided world order. The voices of reason lack moral strength because the false convictions of the passionate have taken over. To quote Yeats:“The best lack all conviction, while the worstAre full of passionate intensity.”That’s how I felt most of 2021. Funnily enough, I started noticing many variations of these lines over the past months. I guess I lived through the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon on this one. I have collated them here. Back in 1871, in the introduction to his book, Descent of Man, Charles Darwin wrote:“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.”In his 1931 essay, The Triumph of Stupidity, Bertrand Russell wrote:“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt. Even those of the intelligent who believe that they have a nostrum are too individualistic to combine with other intelligent men from whom they differ on minor points. This was not always the case. A hundred years ago the philosophical radicals formed a school of intelligent men who were just as sure of themselves as the Hitlerites are; the result was that they dominated politics and that the world advanced rapidly both in intelligence and in material well-being.It is quite true that the intelligence of the philosophical radicals was very limited. It is, I think, undeniable that the best men of the present day have a wider and truer outlook, but the best men of that day had influence, while the best men of this are impotent spectators. Perhaps we shall have to realise that scepticism and intellectual individualism are luxuries which in our tragic age must be forgone, and if intelligence is to be effective, it will have to be combined with a moral fervour which it usually possessed in the past but now usually lacks.”In his essay, A Cult of Ignorance, published in the Newsweek (1980), Isaac Asimov wrote:“Anti- intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.Now we have slogans on the part of obscurantists: "Don't trust the experts!"... We have a new buzzword too, for anyone who admires competence, knowledge, learning and skill, and who wishes to spread it around. People like that are called 'elitists'....What shall we do about it? We might begin by asking ourselves whether ignorance is so wonderful after all, and whether it makes sense to denounce 'elitism'. I believe that every human being with a physically normal brain can learn a great deal and can be surprisingly intellectual. I believe what we badly need is social approval of learning and social rewards for learning.”Of course, all of this culminated into a wonderful paper by David Dunning and Justin Kruger titled, “Unskilled and unaware of it: How difficulties in recognizing one’s own incompetence lead to inflated self-assessments”. Published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Dec 1999, the abstract of the paper asserted:“People tend to hold overly favorable views of their abilities in many social and intellectual domains. The authors suggest that this overestimation occurs, in part, because people who are unskilled in these domains suffer a dual burden: Not only do these people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it.”Thus was born the Dunning-Kruger effect. It owned 2021.Pranay:As for many of you, 2021 was my first year, in many many years, spent entirely at home. Until 2021, there were two neat compartments in my head: a ‘professional’ one and a ‘personal’ one. I associated terms such as ambition, learning, and planning only to the ‘professional’ compartment. On most issues outside that sphere, I thought I could just wing it. To use RSJ’s framing, it was the Dunning-Kruger effect at play in one compartment of life. So, 2021 has been about trying to unlearn many erroneous conclusions I had reached about wellbeing (physical and mental), parenting, relationships, and self-worth. There’s a lot to learn. But just the dissolution of the false assumption that two very different approaches apply to the two spheres of life is liberating. Our Predictions Report CardAt the start of this year, we were foolhardy enough to make a few predictions. We will see how we fared on them.RSJ:Pranay had made an important point about predictions then:“... predictions are susceptible to what Philip Tetlock calls ‘outcome-irrelevant learning’ — a situation wherein no matter the reality, people are in an excellent position to explain that what happened was consistent with their view.One way to check outcome-irrelevant learning is first to make specific, measurable predictions and then reflect on real-world outcomes at the end of the prediction horizon. Which, for this newsletter, means we will do another post at the end of 2021 reflecting on our hits and misses.”I must admit my 10 predictions didn’t exactly fit Pranay’s definition of being specific and measurable. So, as I look back, you can accuse me of conveniently retrofitting the actual outcomes to them. FWIW, let’s see how I fared.Prediction 1: By the end of 2021, we will all realise we overrated the long-term impact of the pandemic on everything. There won’t be any ‘new normal’ to write home about. Things will be more of the same.Outcome: Largely true, I would think. Maybe 6/10 on accuracy. No dramatic shift seen on anything yet. Prediction 2:  The size of the stimulus in most developed economies and the amount of liquidity pumped into the system will mean two things – eventual inflation and a repeat of the taper tantrum in future. Deficits have come to mean nothing and any future slowdown in the economy or fall in markets will mean more stimulus.Outcome: Not bad. I guess 7/10 on this.Prediction 3: The stock markets are in bubble territory now. But there won’t be any reckoning in 2021. The stocks doing well during the pandemic will continue to do well. The divergence between the real economy and the street will continue to confound all of us.Outcome: Cannot complain. 7.5/10Prediction 4: The early signs are of a K-shaped recovery around the world. This will be strengthened in 2021. A small set of companies and people will see a rising graph of growth and prosperity. The long-term impact of the pandemic will be to worsen inequality. The early but definite signs of this will show up in 2021.Outcome: Again 7.5/10Prediction 5: Credit offtake will be weak and the revival of consumption story will be dampened because of this. Private investments were trending downwards anyway before the pandemic. Its revival seems unlikely in 2021.Outcome: Maybe 7/10Prediction 6: The Chinese economy will lead the global growth engine. Despite its misadventures during the pandemic, China will continue its rise to the top. The Biden administration will take a more accommodative stance towards China. The trade war will subside and the EU will continue to strengthen its relationship with China. Outcome: Mostly wrong. China has continued to do well but it has its problems. 3/10Prediction 7: Technology sovereignty will be a key theme in 2021. Countries across the western world will assert their technology independence. The most common form this will take is in keeping Chinese technology companies out of strategic sectors like telecom and finance infrastructure services. Or you could expect heavy fines for restrictive or anti-competitive practices and heavier hand of regulations on these (big tech) companies.Outcome: Largely right. China itself came down heavily on its tech giants while Lina Khan, the chair of FTC, continued her tirade against Big Tech. 6/10Prediction 8: How to vaccinate India will be a policy question that will keep everyone busy in the first half of 2021. Everything about vaccines – procurement, pricing, storage, administration and safety – will test our policymakers. My guess is we will do quite well in this entire exercise. Outcome: I guess we did better than what we expected at the start of 2021. We are still behind on booster doses and vaccines for kids though. 7/10Prediction 9: It won’t be a great year for reforms. The wrong lessons will be learnt from the protests against farm law reforms. Plus, the usual set of assembly elections and the weak economy post the pandemic will continue to weigh on the government. So good, bold and much-needed reforms across sectors will again go into the backburner. Outcome: Cannot disagree. Barring Air India sale and some boost to manufacturing, not much happened here. The start-up story isn’t really a government story to own. Then there was the farm law repeal. Enough said. 7/10Prediction 10: The BJP election machine will have a mixed year. Barring Assam where it should keep its majority and some gains in West Bengal, it won’t see much success. The campaign and the narrative building leading up to elections in Assam and West Bengal will not be for the faint-hearted. There will be a plethora of fake news, violence and no-holds-barred Muslim bashing. The signs are already there on the news channels. The opposition will remain largely ineffective with some kind of split happening in the Congress during the year. But there will also be the earliest sign of some kind of coming together of regional parties to counter BJP in 2024. This seems inevitable.Outcome: Well, that looks fairly accurate. So 8/10.Overall, not bad but I will try to be more specific about next year’s predictions.Pranay:This is the report card of the five predictions I made at the start of 2021. Prediction 11: Petrol prices in Bangalore will hit ₹100 at least once before the end of 2021.Outcome: Petrol prices were at ₹86.47 in Bengaluru on 1st Jan 2021. The prediction was based on the reasoning that excise duties on petrol and diesel are the superhero of last resort for state and union governments. As public spending rose in the backdrop of the second wave of COVID-19, both union and state governments took the easy route of increasing taxes on petrol and diesel. Petrol prices hit the hundred mark in June and galloped to ₹113 by November. Since then, they have settled to just above ₹100. Of course, there were no nationwide protests over the issue. No electoral results were attributed to this price hike, even though the rising inflation would have hit many people hard. Prediction 12: A maximum of 2 CPSUs will be privatised by the end of 2021.Outcome: The backdrop of this prediction was the buzz surrounding the union government’s grand scheme to sell its stake in over 25 CPSUs. The Ministry of Finance’s reply in the Lok Sabha has the details. And from what I can gather, just two CPSUs have found a buyer this year — Air India and Central Electronics Limited.Prediction 13: GST will continue to have the current five tax slabs.Outcome: My reasoning behind this prediction was that the fiasco on the GST compensation cess has broken the trust between union and state governments, and the latter will not welcome any further changes in the GST regime this year. Prediction 14: The status quo at Ladakh in terms of territorial control will continue.Outcome: Just yesterday, the Indian Air Force Chief had this to say: “the standoff does continue. Disengagement has taken place in certain areas in Eastern Ladakh. But, the complete disengagement has not yet been done I would not like to go into the details, but suffice to say we are deployed, we are prepared to take on any challenge that may face us in that area with the shortest of notice.”Prediction 15: The number of US service personnel in Afghanistan will fall below 2500 by the end of 2021.Outcome: The prediction turned out to be true of course. But little did I expect that the withdrawal would put the Taliban in full control of Afghanistan. Finally, I also had a note related to RSJ’s prediction on US and China. The Biden administration has, indeed, continued key elements of the previous administration’s trade policies on China. In the high tech domain, the restrictions are likely to tighten further.These were my five predictions. In retrospect, it looks like I made some safe (and obvious?) bets. Read, Saw Or HeardWe will close with our top recommendations of books, podcasts, newsletters et al, that we came across in 2021. RSJ: In no particular order, here are mineThis Is How They Tell Me The World Ends: The Cyberweapons Arms Race. A riveting take on global cyber warfare by Nicole Perloth that reads like a thriller. Deservingly won the 2021 Financial Times Business Book of the Year award.The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race. Walter Issacson’s book couldn’t have been more timely. The history of gene editing, development of CRISPR and how all of it came together to create vaccines for Covid-19 are all part of this absorbing and informative book. The Light that Failed: A Reckoning. Krastev and Holmes on why liberal democracy faltered in eastern Europe. There are lessons for everyone there. India’s Founding Moment: The Constitution of a Most Surprising Democracy.

A forensic on Indian languages and what they tell us about our history and the evolution of our culture. Civilisation and reclaiming of it is often thrown about loosely in India these days.

Mr Kundra is back this week and he brings a tale of the movies. The man begins with a passionate recount of his trip to the cinema to watch Dune, a film he claims must only be watched on the big screen - anything less is a disservice to yourself and an insult to the filmmakers. We then discuss our tech detox as we reveal our terrible screen time and finally set a time to actually try the tech detox. Long odds on all the lads actually making it through the detox. Finally we discuss our New Year's Eve plans as we reveal we have a free house and an open invite to anyone to join us. Simple rules, you'll sleep on the floor, don't break anything, BYO and bring good vibes. Our game this week is “Family Fight,” where the lads put their familial and ancestral reputation on the line. Much like the similarly named game, the boys are asked questions which were previously presented to the average Joe. This week, the boys try and see if they are in touch with the common human on a global scale as they guess the top Google searches for 2021. This week ends with the always popular “Cuck or Be Cucked.” In this edition, Kush relives a traumatic experience featuring chilli cheese fries, popcorn, narcolepsy and a dark cinema. Miguel also shares his cuck story where he gets absolutely mugged off for no reason by a migrant worker. What this man does next will shock you. Also this week: Denis Villeneuve, Spider-Man, Manchester United and dehumanisation. 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. 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. ___________________________________________________ FULL PODCAST EPISODES

Kush no bingo this week, rumour has it he is patient zero for Omicron. Alas we move and we begin with an update on Rohit's roommate hunt, which has taken a strange turn. Why anyone would choose to live with Ro is beyond us. Next Sen tells us he's got a new kid at work he is meant to be looking after. Sounds more like he's bullying this kid more than anything. Finally Miguel shares a revelation he's come to during the week. Humanity has become too connected to social media and technology and here at Critical Banter we are going to take a stand. The buoys collectively decide to undertake a tech detox, ridding themselves of the evils of technology, somehow missing the irony of making this outlandish statement through a form of social media - podcasting. As we banged on about in the logue, we live in the digital age, the tik tok generation, with shortened attention spans. Ad campaigns these days are short and snappy and mostly forgettable. This week's game, “Know Your Brand,” tests the boys' knowledge of classic Australian / international ads and brand slogans. We end this week with the always popular, “Dob in a Rare Unit.” This week we dob in some of our own rare units and we have one listener submitted rare donny.

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. ___________________________________________________ FULL PODCAST EPISODES

Ep. 87: On truth and trust in diplomacy (Morrison vs Macron)

Australia in the World

Allan and Darren cannot resist focusing on the escalated and seemingly personal spat between Australian PM Scott Morrison and French President Emmanuel Macron over Australia's cancellation of the French submarine contract, then followed by the launch of AUKUS. During Morrison's recent international trip, Macron called him a liar, to which the Australian side responded by leaking details of private text messages the French president had sent the PM just days prior to the announcement. In Morrison's words: “claims were made, claims were refuted”. Who is in the right/wrong here? Stepping back, what is the role of honesty and integrity, or truth and trust, in international diplomacy? How much does it matter? Along the way, Darren finds the temptation to develop a potted academic theory of a “Morrison doctrine” too strong to pass up. Let the debate begin!

A 10 wicket thrashing at the hands of Pakistan followed by an 8 wicket loss to New Zealand and pre-tournament favourites India are staring at a dangerously early exit from the 2021 T20 World Cup. Yes, the Men in Blue are not yet out of the tournament, but their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals went from bad to worse on Sunday and what's more - their fate no longer rests in their own hands. Only two teams qualify from the two groups at the t20 World Cup and with Pakistan on a winning-spree, they are set to book the first spot. Meaning, it will come down to India, New Zealand and maybe even Afghanistan fighting for that second spot.  For India to win that race, they not only need to win the remaining three matches with a significant margin but also hope that Afghanistan upset New Zealand.  On Sunday night, Virat Kohli made two changes to the squad that lost to Pakistan and brought in Ishan Kishan in place of the injured Suryakumar Yadav and got Shardul Thakur to play in Bhuvneshwar Kumar;s place.  Ishan opened, Rohit batted at three but all the experiments failed as the team was put into bat first and managed to only score 110/7- their lowest ever score batting first in a T20 World Cup. The team was also unable to secure any boundaries between 6th-17th overs.   Several factors, from the batting order to the bowling performance may have worked against the India team, with top pacer Jasprit Bumrah stating that the toss becomes a very crucial factor in these matches given the nature of the pitch To speak on India's performance in the match and the road ahead for the team, we spoke with sports commentator and analyst Host and Producer: Himmat Shaligram Guest:  Chandresh Narayan, sports commentator and analyst.

As of this recording NSW was on the cusp of freedom and just in time as well, lockdown has not treated the boys well. Regardless, whilst we can almost taste the freedom, the boys discuss their last few days in lockdown. Sen begins by revisiting Squid Game for the last time, before providing an update on his unwilling return to the office. Ro then complains about the most mundane of things such as public transport before Migs throws out a call to the listeners on what his new haircut should be. Finally we end discussing some protests in New York as we discover Ro lives under a rock and Kush makes his Tik Tok debut. Our game this week is “Celebrity Name Game.” Believe it or not, but Snoop Dog was not originally born Snoop Dog, neither was Eminem. This game tests the boys' knowledge of celebrity names and how well they know their original, given names. Given the lads barely know celebrities, this almost certainly can't end well. #AskTCB is back this week as we answer questions written by listeners. We cast the net far and wide over Instagram and the TCB Appreciation Society and sourced the best questions and answered them on this week's edition. This week we answer questions about biggest regrets, what happens after we die, streaming services and furry porn. Also this week: Fat Ronaldo, Kayo Sports, Discord and Ligma.

NSW finally looks to escape this hellish facade, that is this lockdown and as such, this week Sen tells the boys that his firm is looking to head back to the office soon as we discuss sharing an office with unvaccinated people. This podcast is firmly pro-vaxx and looks down on people who are anti-vaxx. We also discuss another firm who have been in the news this week for racist sketches and comments made by their HR department - you literally couldn't make this stuff up. Our game this week is “Madlib Madness.” Ro and Migs go head-to-head as they provide various nouns, adjectives and adverbs in an effort to come up with the funniest paragraph. This week we explore Owen Wilson, rune, Danny DeVito and Vince Vaughan. Finally, we end the episode with a fan favourite segment “Compare and Contrast” where we debate and rank various things, this week we tier characters from the popular Netflix show, Squid Game. The show features incredibly nuanced and flawed characters who could be analysed to the Nth degree - so of course instead, we allocated them to one of 5 tiers.

As we have said on this podcast before, the boys have been doing some pretty sad things this lockdown, but this confession may be the saddest. Rohit then tries to figure out what his party trick should be after he learns of a party trick from a friend of his which is both outrageous and straight up illegal. The game this week is “Higher or Lower.” The premise is quite simple, the boys are given 2 social media accounts and have to decide if one has higher or lower the amount of followers than the other account. This week the boys are left speechless by Vin Diesel, Demi Lovato and Baby Shark. We have a new segment this week called “Not So Humble Brag.” In this segment we discuss the times we've been flexed on for no apparent reason. This week we discuss schlong length, buying an elusive PS5 and the goldmine that is LinkedIn. Also this week: FIFA Points, juggling, Nike, Daddy Yankee and magnum dongs.
