Episode 173

Mike Bubbins, The Cravens & Louboutins

Show broadcast on 10 June 2017

An approachable but sexy podcast today.... Mike Bubbins sat in for Elis and brought sideburns, sex-appeal and a relaxed attitude to shame. Robins calls on the powers that be to introduce 'normal' carriages on trains. Silent coaches are much too stressful for all of us and it's an issue that needs addressing. A complex Beta Bet, some foul Humblebrags and a tense moment when Mike described Freddie Mercury as the 2nd best entertainer of all time.

John's introduction of Elis

"Elis is off again. John is joined by another Welsh replacement, Mike Bubbins."

Conversations and riffs

John experienced some tension in the quiet carriage on the train today and proposes an alternative: 'Be Normal' carriages.

Who's better? Freddie Mercury or Elvis Presley?

John's Shame Well
