Episode 222

8 Beautiful Sons, #Content & The Winter Of My Future

Show broadcast on 2 June 2018

GUYS... Massive show today. There's a big announcement AND a brand new feature that Elis maintains is his favourite yet. It's quite a find. Plus there's a special Keep It Session Session with John managing to choose 6 (count them - 6) of Queen's best moments. All this plus the Humblebrags, some stinking shame and some lovely emails.

Podcast intro

Elis and John announce the autumn tour for their upcoming book The Holy Vible.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, the man behind Wales' competitor to the Apple Watch. The Cymru Watch, aimed at dairy farmers, features a digital clock, calculator and reminders for sunrise, milking and bovine inoculations. After receiving £1500 in funding from the Welsh parliament, it should hit branches of WHSmith across Powys by January 2019. "

Conversations and riffs

Elis joins Instagram live on the show.

John wins £10,000 live on air but as it's a Radio X competition and he's an employee of Radio X, he probably won't be allowed to keep it.

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

Spreading dog mess around your local gym.

John's Gig Diaries

John reads aloud from diaries he kept during his early stand-up days.

The first instalment in John's recently found gig diary beginning in March 2005 when he started stand-up comedy. Reading it out gives John a shame migraine.

Made-Up Games

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

What's the Attendance? Pick a low-level non-league football division and read out a fixture and it's attendance. Then read out three more from the division/league and the other person has to guess higher or lower attendance.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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

Queen! (Six choice musical moments) (Elis - no, just kidding - John, of course)
