Dads, Australia, Ian Botham and an utter pasting.
Show broadcast on 15 June 2014
Welcome to the 18th instalment of the Elis James and John Robins podcast from XFM. Within this week's audio treat, as it's Father's Day, we get your very best 'cool dad' anecdotes, one member of the team gets an absolute hammering in regular feature 'Winner Plays On', and Chris is helped with his limited footballing knowledge in 'Textual Healing'. Also, listen out for a particularly ambitious impersonation of Janet Street-Porter from Mr Robins, and varied attempts at the Australian accent from Elis. Enjoy!
John and El debut their new email address.
