Episode 221

Necking, Apology Yogurt & A Five Rifle Salute

Show broadcast on 26 May 2018

Elis James has started learning French. Not content with Welsh & English, we hope to bring you the podcast in French from next week. Whatever language it's in though, you can always count on the lads to deliver the badinage in buckets. Learn of John's adventures at an actual (LIVE) gig, find out why Elis doesn't fancy booze anymore and hear the Queen biopic trailer commentated on as Elis sees it for the first time! All this plus the Humblebrags, Shamewell and a stonking Made Up Game!

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, the grandson of the man who first introduced cement to Anglesea. Initially banished from the island by locals who believed him to have bewitched rock into liquid, he is now celebrated by a statue bearing his nickname, 'The Man Who Melted The Mountain'. "

Conversations and riffs

This week Elis commentated on a football match and John tried to play it cool at a gig with a lady.

In a thrilling piece of radio, the guys watch and comment on the trailer for the upcoming Queen biopic and John identifies every year from Queen's history that is portrayed in the trailer.

Is Elis becoming less of a laugh? Is his cliff eroding (or something)?
