Episode 242

The Sadfather, Sexy Cat & 2 Million Pounds To Go Away

Show broadcast on 27 October 2018

How do you feel about wee at a student party? Is it a grey area? Let Elis & John lead the way! Now that the Holy Vible Tour is up and running, the lads ducked out to resume their unproducable once again. You'll find out what Elis thinks of Halloween and what he'd dress up as if he HAD to, find out whether John has ever kissed a belly and hear a drunken/theft based Shamewell. All this plus the Humblebrags, a Made Up Game and a couple of tastes to tick off!

Podcast intro

A listener is practicing 'tantric podcast listening' in that he is listening to the episodes in order from the start but actually doesn't want to reach the end (so to speak), i.e. catch up and complete 'retro one-er' status.

Some advice on applying for universities.

If Queen were a pizza, what kind of pizza would they be? If the members of Queen were the elements of a fry-up, which would they be?

What's a sport and what's not a sport?

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, developer of hit app 'Flock Tycoon' where players enjoy real-time simulation of life as a Welsh valleys shepherd. With the tag line 'Breed, feed and lead' it's been downloaded over 23,000 times, though - due to an incorrec decimal place - has only earned £137. "

Conversations and riffs

Elis beat his four-year-old daughter at Snakes and Ladders before leaving the house this morning and is flying high. Children have to learn how to lose sometimes but John skipped that life lesson.

Elis and John started their Holy Vible book tour this week and Elis is in love with the tour manager, Giles. But who does Giles like the best out of E & J?

Sometimes John just wants someone to knock on his door and give him £2 million pounds to go away and lead a quiet life. But would he actually do anything interesting with the money?

During the show, John's interview with the cast of Bohemian Rhapsody (the Queen biopic) are broadcast.

Elis doesn't like Halloween ("I haven't got the time for ghosts") and John asks him what he would do in a few Halloween scenarios.

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

Being wrongly accused of theft from a room at a student halls party (when in fact you were simply having a secret wee in a cup) and responding by accidentally stealing the entire DJ sound-system set-up.

Made-Up Games

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

Alternative Forrest Gump: Player 1 says "Life is like a..." then adds a noun of their choice. The other players have to finish off the sentence with a profound reason for why life is like that thing. The best effort wins that round.

Tick Off a Taste

The gang try a new taste sensation sent in by a listener.

Cola-flavoured beer and Scandinavian cherry liquorice salty sweets.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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

Counting Crows (again) (John)

Podcast outro

Discussion of the merits (or not) of 'best and worse' lists of songs or albums online.

Some extra bits from the interviews broadcast on the show that John did with the cast of Bohemian Rhapsody (the Queen biopic).
