Doing A Cilla, Rag N Bone Man v2.0, Top Shelf Goods and Online Milk

Show broadcast on 19 November 2016

How does John cope with an argument? Which prophet does Elis think of first? What is the most futuristic name? Is Chris Moyles good at impressions? All these questions are answered in this week's podcast, plus Humble Brag Of The Week, a spectacularly uninformed round of Winner Plays On, John's struggles in Email Of The Species and a sublime Keep It Session Session.

Podcast intro

The duo discuss the upcoming Channel 5 biographical drama series on Freddie Mercury.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is a man described by Sky TV listings as 'tardy'"

Conversations and riffs

During Humblebrag they riff on people who use social media to find out info when a Google search would suffice, in order to show off how great their life is.'Does anyone know a pocket repair man? Because my wallet has caused a hole because it's so full of money.'

John loses the ability to read prose live on air, despite having a degree from Oxford University (humblebrag!).

Discuss Chris Moyles' bad impression of John and how Robins is un-doable by even the best impressionists.

Elis & John relive John's failed attempt to mount a speaker stack during his grand entrance Freddy-like at the live EJJR Experience at Kentish Town Forum (14 Nov)

Text-in topic

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

Have you seen a rag and bone man recently?

Winner Plays On

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

Wayne's World (Elis) v Moses (John). Elis wins 3-2.

John announces he will be doing photography for his subject next week, his secret first passion, and they riff about his groundbreaking, artistic, thought-vibe-piece photography.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

A special section at the end of the podcast for music recommendations.

60s Motown (Elis) sampled with the Velvelettes' 'He Was Really Saying Something' and recounts his recurring day dream of being a 16-year old girl in the '60s.
