Lovely Bottom Lip, Peanut Parliament & Eats, Shoots & Leaves
Show broadcast on 1 July 2017
Elis can't be arsed. This much will become clear. He clearly cares enough to sort his teeth out though! A cracking podcast this week as John rejoined Elis in the studio. Last week's foray into 'Nut, Wood, Seed?' seems to have inspired the nation to share similar games - strap in for Brendan's 'Population Speculation' and plenty more! All this plus the usual Humblebrags, the very usual Beta Bet and a thorough paper review!
More dating advice:
Know your own vibe (be comfortable in your own skin). Wait and let the statistics play out. Elis says that when he was last dating, it was before dating apps existed and his tactic to achieve success was "to just stand".
John's introduction of Elis
"Three times winner of Narberth's most charming smile.
(Elis is aiming to improve that smile by having braces fitted.)"
Conversations and riffs
The guys dissect John's appearance on Live From The BBC, only available on iPlayer for the next 11 months so catch it while you can! John was unhappy with the way his hair looked but pleased that he looked slim, having lost 5kg in 10 days through crying.
Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review
Elis' selection of humorous stories from this week's newspapers.
From the Daily Mail, if Rudyard Kipling were alive today, he'd back Brexit. A 77-year-old woman chased after a robber who tried to steal her handbag.
More examples of that scourge of social media, the humblebrag.
An incredible Facebook tirade about how tiring it is to be in the top 20% for intelligence and cognisance among the population, and having to deal with the fact that 80% of the people you have to deal with in life are less capable than you and that you would be better than them at their job.
Elis and John compete to name as many things as possible on a theme in alphabetical order in 30 seconds.
University subjects as listed in the UCAS brochure. John wins 10-5.
Listeners suggest made-up games that Elis and John can play.
Listeners suggest more great made-up games to play with your friends, following on from 'Nut, wood, seed' last week. They include 'Population speculation', in which you have to guess the population of any given country, and 'Birds Eye' in which each of you takes it in turn to say "potato" until one of you says "birds eye". That person is the winner, unless it didn't feel like an appropriate moment to say it, in which case they lose.

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