Sky News Robins, Mints/Mince & The Hubris Dome
Show broadcast on 14 October 2017
Little old Johnny Robins eh? You'll never guess what he's got coming up!? Well listen to the podcast and you won't need to guess. You'll just know. An absolute vintage James & Robins podcast today: There was plenty of shame, a bit of character assassination and all the usual fun too. Emails, a brilliant Made Up Game and so many Humblebrags that it had to be a two-parter! Disgusting.
More dairy-free talk - this time: cheese
John's introduction of Elis
"To my left, a man recently found not guilty of wreckless herding of rams in Penarth. The CCTV footage showed that the quad bike he was using was out of control due to a technical fault. If found guilty he would have faced a sentence of up to three years forced labour in a wool mill. "
Conversations and riffs
John was on Sky News this morning to talk about his tour show. In make-up beforehand he had a toilet situation he couldn't quite take care of. Have he and his agent overreached in terms of the scale of some of the venues they've booked?
