Episode 204

Wis-Duh, Infinite Christian Fish & Chips and What Would Robins Do?

Show broadcast on 27 January 2018

Poor, poor little Robins. He could hardly talk, bless him! Still dragged himself in thought didn't he? John had tonsillitis this week so Elis did the lion's share of the talking. There was still plenty to laugh about though. Not least how Elis is getting on with his daughter's potty training (spoiler: It's not going well). There was also a smashing Made Up Game from listener Matt and it was right up the lads' street. All this plus the usual Humblebrags, a Shame Well read by Elis and a couple of lovely emails.

Podcast intro

A PCD wedding! Two people who met by virtue of both being Podcast Devotees

John's introduction of Elis

"Dunkirk, Liverpool's one night in Istanbul, Nelson Mandela's life story (general). These examples of triumph over adversity pale into insignificance in light of what is about to happen over the next three hours. To a DJ on commercial indie radio, tonsillitis is what mixomotosis was to rabbits or punk-rock was to Queen. Despite all of this, here's here and willing to soldier on - John Robins is in the studio!"

Conversations and riffs

John has tonsillitis so his chat is rationed.

John has been invited to give an after-dinner speech at an Oxford college (for five minutes, for free)
