Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review
Elis' selection of humorous stories from this week's newspapers.
How weightlifters can avoid haemorrhoids. Varicose veins myths busted. How often to clean things like handbags, pants and lightbulbs, and when to boil your toothbrush. An unusual way to work out what size socks, trousers or shirt collar you need.

You're taking a break from your high-flying job as a lawyer to be inspired by yourself, study "at the school of me" and be "a faceless magician working tirelessly out of pure love".
Listeners suggest made-up games that Elis and John can play.
Elis and John revisit some of their favourite Made Up Games so far, including Population Speculation (from Episode 176), which comes with its own jingle made by the creators of the game. Elis, on winning: "Kissing and hugging and fondling and being GREAT!"
