Podcast intro

John is dusting off his old standup show "for a thing". E & J riff on the current trend on social media for making vague, slightly humblebrag requests for help because "it's for a thing I'm doing".

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is the man who was the last to abandon the doomed SS Pontypridd. Credited with ensuring the survival of all passengers and crew but unable to save any of the livestock on board. "

Conversations and riffs

It's New Year's Eve so the guys discuss their memories of previous New Year celebrations.

Friend of the show Josh Widdicombe is a guest to promote the launch of his latest standup show on DVD ("such a good format"). Listeners were asked to tweet questions for Josh in advance of the show but some of them got mixed up with Twitter questions for a Los Angeles YouTube celebrity also called Josh. Yet again John quizzes Josh on the chances of him making an appearance in the next series of sitcom 'Josh'.


More examples of that scourge of social media, the humblebrag.
