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. "
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.
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.
