Episode 185

Peter Freestone, GESTATION! & Van Morrison's First Thing

Show broadcast on 16 September 2017

All needs are natural needs. Robins is tired and James is off to watch Swansea in a bit. It's a story as old as time. This week's podcast was an absolute stonker. Stinking shame (literally), ever-persistent Humblebrags, a trio of upbeat Emails and a CLASSIC Made Up Game. Should bananas have an apostrophe? Absolutely not. What do Wasabi Kit-Kats taste like? You'll find out.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, a man so wedded to the idea of land reform that he has donated his back garden to a displaced group of Snowdonian sheep farmers. His 44 square foot of South London turf is home to three Balwen Welsh mountain rams, a trough and a receptacle for crooks. "

Text-in topic

Listeners text and tweet during the show on this week's topic.

This week John bumped into Peter Freestone (yes! That Peter Freestone, used to be Freddy Mercury's PA) and had a good old chat. Do you have an obscure link to a celebrity? e.g. Provide IT support to Mark Owen from Take That's brother.

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

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

Male dominance of the field of physics may be down to toilet training. DIY tip: as weather gets cooler, leave the bathroom window open to avoid damp and condensation- or is this a security risk?

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

Being caught short with an IBS-related emergency whilst jogging - then being tracked by a dog.

Made-Up Games

Listeners suggest made-up games that Elis and John can play.

Gestation! Take it in turns to pick a mammal and then the other person has to guess the gestation period for its young. Closest to the actual wins the round.

Tick Off a Taste

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

Some pepper jelly sweets from Borneo. Pepper and minty, like having a dentist's glove in your mouth.

Plus, wasabi kit kats.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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

The Roaches: 'Hammond Song' (John)
