Episode 151

Lump, Bump, Smooth, Motion, Tantalise

Show broadcast on 7 January 2017

Saying "Hello Daddio", Welsh freight, and being fascinated by pain - all topics discussed by J-Dog and Eel-Man this week. The boys returned from their successful stint on Prime Time Drive Time as Keepers Of The Vaughan Flame and brought Elis' Laid-Back Paper Review with them, plus the usual stuff - Humble Brag Of The Week (which this week is absolutely exceptional), Winner Plays On, and a double dose of Email Of The Species. Enjoy the podcast, and remember - all's quallo.

Podcast intro

EJ & JR talk about Elis' friend who, when having a conversation, will suddenly switch into singing the lyrics of the song on in the background and then back into the conversation.

Also, favourite debut albums.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is a man who is leading the campaign for Wales to have its own atomic clock."

Conversations and riffs

A return to the topic of 'lady porn bots' on Twitter.

Elis is recording his first solo album tomorrow, 'Dissolve'. "Just a guy with an acoustic guitar and a story to tell."

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

Elis' selection of humorous stories from this week's newspapers.

New feature: Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review.

A rare glass penny made in WWII has sold for £57,000. Fixing pot holes with a self-Healing living road. West Wales freight company gets its own TV series.


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

The longest, most detailed, most deliberately scripted humble brag on the show to date from someone Face-timing his family while editing a film for 20th century fox in Beverley Hills.

Winner Plays On

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

John Barnes (Elis) v Cats (The Animals) (John). Elis wins 3-2.

Email of the Species

Listeners' emails into the show.

Mike has met a lady who is a fellow PCD via the 'Are you on email?' Chat up line.

Plus what to do if you accidentally liked a photo of an old unrequited love from their Facebook profile.

Also, cats or dogs? (With a nice pub analogy from John)

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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

Silver Jews (John)
