Introducing a new series within the Banana Boys podcast feed: THE CUT, as in Directors Cut. While the Banana Boys is, and will continue to be, a comedy show about growing up Tamil, we want to leverage this platform to give even more value to our listeners. THE CUT is all about having some honest, long-form conversations with other Tamils doing amazing things within out community. For our inaugural episode, we are joined by Swarna and Deya (@thelifeofasocialbutterfly and @deyakannesha respectively) to talk about being a Tamil Content Creator. We also speak about their @AspireToInspire.SD initiative. If you're a creator, you don't want to miss this episode. Enjoy!
In this SPECIAL episode of the Banana Boys, we are joined by Mathusha of Dash The Curry, one of the premiere podcasts on the internet right now. Together, we spend the better part of an hour talking about some Tamil wedding traditions. Why do we do certain things? Can we change for the better? And will Viknesh be alive to see his wedding day after what he says on this show? You'll have to listen to and find out for yourself. Enjoy!
In our Valentine's Day Special, the Banana Boys discuss the pros and cons of both a love marriage AND an arranged marriage. I mean, we can expand on that in the description but you're just going to have to listen to the show for yourself to hear what happens. From our hearts to yours... Enjoy!
In this episode of Banana Boys, we talk about Tamil Heritage month and what that means to our culture. The Banana Boys then talk about the preservation of that culture. Do Tamils have to marry Tamils to keep our culture strong? And Gajan tries to not swear as much moving forward. Let's see how that goes. Enjoy!
The Banana Boys air out ALL the dirty laundry in this episode. Some might say it's the funniest epsidoe yet. This week, we talk about all the sibling-related issues that we endured growing up. No punches were pulled in the making of this episode. Or knees. Yes, that's an inside joke that you'll defintiely want to hear about on this show. Make sure to follow @TheRiskyFox for even more great content. Also, if you enjoyed the show... LEAVE A REVIEW! It definitely helps us and allows others to find the show easier.

Happy New Year Banana Band! We are back after some time off for the holidays and are excited to bring you ANOTHER episode of the Banana Boys! In this epsiode, we ring in the new year and go on a tangent about New Years resolutions. And then we jump into our topic of the week, who the fuck are the Banana Boys? We answer questions and hopefully provide some laughs along the way. The episode ends on a surprise from Gajan. You won't want to miss this! Make sure to follow The Risky Fox on Instagram and share this show with your friends. Enjoy!
In this episode, the Banana Boys discuss body size. It's something that is always a topic of conversation amongst Tamil uncles and aunties. When did you first think about it? How did you handle the situation? And how do we move forward? Oh, and like any episode, we share some of our most embarrasing stores. Make sure to follow The Risky Fox on Instagram and share this show with your friends. Enjoy!
In this episode, the Banana Boys discuss the age-old topic of skin colour. It has been rooted in Tamil culture for generations, and does not show any signs of slowing down. When did you experience it? How do you deal with it? And what would we do about it?
The boys re-unite to talk about the ancient tradition of Deepavali (not to be confused with Diwali). They share their early memories, the trials and tribulations, and even get a little political at the end. Uh oh... This can't be good. Well, it was nice knowing you all!
In our third episode of Banana Boys, the crew discuss the wrath of a mother scorned. And if that wasn't enough, they dive deep into Amma's arsenal of weapons. Listen, some of you might just flinch listening to our show but we had to do it! Make sure to share our podcast with your friends and leave a review if you enjoyed the show!
In our second episode, the Banana Boys take a more positive route and discuss music in Tamil culture, specifically the importance of Kuthu and Gaana flavours. Let's hope they don't drop the ball on this!
Banana Boys is a podcast where three Canadian Tamils talk about growing up in the Tamil culture and how it shaped them. Listen, this is first and foremost a comedy show where we share and laugh at our pain. We hope you do as well.
In our inaugaral episode of Banana Boys, we introduce the show and get straight to it: what's a tamil? What are some stereotypes? How do we introduce ourselves? And more! We ain't calling ourselves experts either. But we sure have opinions! Enjoy.
