Conversations and riffs
John gets bogged down equating band names to similarly titled political and social issues (The War on Drugs, Barenaked Ladies, etc).

Use figurative language to impress ladies.
John's Shame Well
John frees another listener of their shame.
Texting your crush the lyrics to 'Bad Day' by Daniel Powter while enjoying your first beers as a teenager. That time John tried to impress a girl at school by smoking a miniature cigar in Pizza Hut.
More examples of that scourge of social media, the humblebrag.
How embarrassing that the neighbours applauded your singing in the back garden (and you posted the video on social media). When you pop out for a bit and buy a new car by accident (What Is Life?). Blessed and haunted by the inability not to invent.
Tick Off a Taste
The gang try a new taste sensation sent in by a listener.
Hairy willies (Indonesian ting-ting sweets with a rude-looking logo).
