Episode 105

Elis' Rap, Wilderness Crew & Wallop!

Show broadcast on 20 February 2016

Huge news from Elis this week, accompanied by a sort of rap. Meanwhile John's bushcraft obsession has really taken off, and the boys also encounter a bizarre round of Tick Off A Taste. Plus Winner Plays On, Humble Brag Of The Week and Textual Healing.

Podcast intro

A PCD has calculated that a John Robins gig works out better value enjoyment per pound per hour than a Stewart Lee one.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is the man responsible for more challenges to planning applications in Narberth than anyone else 2000-present. "

Conversations and riffs

Elis has lost confidence with a rap idea for his standup routine involving chanting 'Dorking, Leatherhead, Reigate'.

The podcast has been recommended on an American website but John was described as "uptight". The repeating of John's washing up rules (as described in an earlier episode - to avoid 'egg water' and trapped old air under glasses) probably doesn't help dispel this impression.

That time John had to run through a restaurant kitchen nude (because his workmates had hidden his clothes).

Hear live footage of the moment Elis' girlfriend proposed to him in the pub while he was eating steak and chips.

Text-in topic

Listeners text and tweet during the show on this week's topic.

Textual Healing

Winner Plays On

Elis and John face off in the weekly quiz on topics of their choice.

Podcast outro

A PCD sent in a picture of themselves going to a 'power ballad night' dressed as John Robins.

John enjoys the outro chat: "It's like having a family. Well, I do have a family... It's like having a Sunday lunch but with chat as the roast."
