Episode 215

Welsh, Punjabi & Bumzone

Show broadcast on 14 April 2018

Elis James sends texts to John Robins in complete confidence: John Robins broadcasts them to the nation. It's why this show just WORKS. A brilliant show which will tell you why John is meek and why Elis is the best guy to go to if you're unsure of which historic football memorabilia to buy for a loved one's birthday. All that plus the Humblebrags, John's Shame Well & some brilliant Emails from the gorgeous PCDs.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, the defending Commonwealth Games bronze medalist in the hay weave. A traditional sport in Bangor, the hay weave dates back to the mid-18th century where farm hands would make protective head gear to save them from the persistent drizzle. When asked if he had gold in his sights, James replied "Oh no, Mam wouldn't like that, far too much fuss. Bronze will do for me.""
