Episode 203

Sad Mechanics, Double Beans & WC Shame

Show broadcast on 20 January 2018

This week, you'll find out why dentists are basically like vets and why John felt like a thousand billion dollars! Lucky you! How bad is spitting? More to the point. How bad is graffiti? There's a paper review, Prod V learns that a Tesco breakfast is a thing and John wins the ashes by switch-hitting Elis. All that plus an Anthemic Made Up Game, Humblebrags and a thorough Ronnie O'Sullivan update.

Podcast intro

Strange places people listen to the podcast: while rowing a boat across the Atlantic.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left a man once described by Hal Robson-Kanu as the soil under the turf of Welsh football. An actor, reactor and a face familiar to viewers of S4C, BBC 1 Wales and BBC 2 Wales alike. "

Conversations and riffs

Because John is a blummin' bloke he changed a wheel himself on his car this week.

A listener has sent in knitted versions of John and Elis.

An imposter found their way into Radio X during the week pretending to be Little Georgie Esra.

More listener tales of bumping into Ronnie O'Sullivan. In 2003, Ronnie defeats all challengers on the pool table in a bar, whilst on the booze.

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

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

Kids these days want to be YouTube stars when they grow up... or bomb diffusers. Suggs occasionally cries when he watches Master Chef. Manly baby carriers.

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

Several tales of toilet shame - being caught short in need of a number 2 in inconvenient circumstances.

Made-Up Games

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

Sing an anthem: One person picks a country and the other aims to sing it as accurately as possible. John and Elis play a variation whereby Prod Vin plays national anthems and the guys have to guess which country it belongs to. Whoever is closest (i.e. the capital of the country they say is closest to the capital of the actual country the anthem belongs to), winds the round.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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

KISS: 'There's a ghost in my house' by R Dean Taylor (Elis)
