Episode 225

David Willie Facts, Ghost Child and Bum Wine

Show broadcast on 23 June 2018

Yes you read that right: Bum Wine. It'll all become clear (but it's still disgusting). John is off on holiday for a bit, but don't worry - he's being totally cool about it. Elis is going glamping because he hates camping. There's a Wackaging update, some emails, a party shame and a swift Made Up Game!

Podcast intro

A listener asks the guys what thing have they done that would amaze the younger versions of themselves that wrote their gig diaries 10 years ago.

John recommends Queen documentaries and filmed live shows.

A PCD has written the first episode of a radio play involving Elis and John and is thinking that perhaps other PCDs could write future episodes and see how it develops. John suggests posting it on the PCD Facebook page.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, a man who's going back to school or, should I say back to the hut? The most recent addition to the 5th Carmarthenshire Mohawks can now lay claim to being the oldest Cub Scout in the country. He hopes to improve his CV with the navigation, camp craft and collecting badges that he was denied aged 13 by a "miscarriage of justice and corruption that was rife among South Walian akelas in the mid-90s". "

Conversations and riffs

Elis and John reminisce about their time in the Boys' Brigade and Scouts.

John is going on holiday with his new girlfriend and trying his hardest to stay cool about the admin of it all. Elis points out that as they are still in the early days of the relationship, John is on his best behaviour - "She thinks you're different to what you are."

Wackaging: almost illegible non-sensical shipping Ts & Cs from Todlands clothing compan. Deodorant that uses "atomic robots" to fight your "stench monsters" and replace with "scent elves".

Swimming pool Changing room etiquette- John is a confident independent woman.

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

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

Subway have made a sandwich that's as big as a man. The type of coffee you like may reflect your political views. Britain's mood is better in the morning than it is at night. Does bathing in red wine make you younger and healthier? (maybe, but you'd be left with "bum wine")

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

A mother's shame passed down to her child to pass in to the shame well: arranging a children's birthday party but forgetting to fill the gift boxes so you have to hand out empty ones to all the children. Bonus Australian accents from E & J.

Made-Up Games

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

Country Codes: A quick-fire game of identifying the country by its three letter FIFA code. First one to shout the correct answer wins the point.

Email of the Species

Listeners' emails into the show.

Panic normality: cutting yourself while gardening and opting for the upstairs bathroom to clean the wound, instead of downstairs, because it would give you an opportunity to take the holiday suitcase back upstairs.

A fantasy cricket team based on elements of the show.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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