Mystery Special Guest, Elis And John's Caribbean Bar & The Near Future

Show broadcast on 8 October 2016

Elis and John were joined by a SPECIAL MYSTERY GUEST for the first time ever on this week's show, and conversation flowed in all sorts of unusual ways, taking in the WAFTAs, coining, the concept of finishing all pubs and Van Envy. John also had a go at Mastermind, whilst Elis had more power lifting advice. All this plus Humble Brag Of The Week, Email Of The Species and Winner Plays On.

Discussion about re-training your brain to change your outlook on life ends up with Elis suggesting John fancies spiders.
