Episode 157

Sexy Valentines, Shame Pause & Friday the Donkey

Show broadcast on 18 February 2017

Are you pounding the P, or sitting on your B? Either way.... You'll be unsurprised to learn that Elis & John spent valentine's evening together eating too much cheese on toast. This week, Elis talks about the calories you can expect to incur whilst larging it and John offers sanctuary to those who have shamed and need a visit down the well. Can Elis start to make some ground on John's 4-0 lead in Beta Bet? Will the show win at the Chortle Awards this time? What would you do with a dodeca-month subscription to Apple music? It's frankly academic as long as you moisturise.

Podcast intro

If only John could monetise 'Likes' on Instagram. A PCD-to-PCD Valentines gift.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is the man responsible for solving the mystery of the Carmarthen blaze. For centuries locals had been baffled by an unexplained radiating light. After months of research he finally identified the source as the sun. "

Conversations and riffs

Robins failed to pound the P this morning and instead sat on his B.

E & J had a bromantic Valentine's evening out in Soho and Elis struggled with the menu at Wahaca's.

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

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

Wetherspoons to add calorie content info to drinks labelling. The oldest donkey in Wales has died. Rent a fancy London flat for £60k a week.

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

Accidentally saying an insensitive thing to a girl you fancy after she's talked in a heartfelt way about being bullied at school. An awkward conversation in the disabled section at a Brazilian metal gig.


Elis and John compete to name as many things as possible on a theme in alphabetical order in 30 seconds.

Chemical elements of the Periodic Table. John wins 10-5.

Elis: "A game I didn't devise and I'm getting beaten at it every week."

John: "Life is a game I didn't devise and I'm getting beaten at it every week."

Tick Off a Taste

The gang try a new taste sensation sent in by a listener.

BBQ jerky meat from Singapore. John can't eat it as he doesn't eat meat. Elis offers to jerk it off.
