Episode 259

Breastfeeding Cafe, Is This Cool? & Four Coffee Viagra

Show broadcast on 23 February 2019

How do you get through a three hour show on barely any sleep? Well if you're Elis you have four coffees before 1pm. Spoiler alert, it all gets a bit silly. An informative show this week, with the guys getting to the bottom of what really is 'cool' and clearing up any misconceptions of what to expect from a breastfeeding café (no paninis?!)

Podcast intro

A PCD's son has drawn a picture of John. Recommendations for Vegan cookbooks. Getting tearful on the train during a chance PCD encounter. 'Potato Potato' might not be for everyone but it means a lot to one PCD and their family. An ex-listener - who thought the podcast had become too laddish - has returned.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, the inspiration for Narberth Community Theatre's new production 'Little Rod'. The play tells the uplifting story of a boy who, despite his diminutive stature, overcomes adversity to run his own canoeing business in Crickhowell. Director Owen Llewelyn said 'It's all Elis, from the thighs to the go-get-em attitude to the tiny, tiny penis.'"

Conversations and riffs

Elis is both tired and exhilarated because he has two young children but has also had four coffees this morning.

John compèred a comedy gig for industry bigwigs and was struggling to find non-industry types in the audience to riff with. He told two Queen stories and then realised the last person left to riff with was Roger Taylor's son. Elis: "I'd have had enough of me if I were you."

Elis went to a 'breastfeeding cafe' this week.

Elis and John ask a pharmacist about Viagra without a prescription (asking for a friend)

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

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

The Daily Mirror's recipe of the week is pasta salad. It is the 282nd anniversary of Dick Turpin being caught. Bristol is a city of bad drivers. We will soon be able to fall asleep while our cars drive themselves.

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

A misunderstanding leads to you offering a tin of dog food as sustenance to a homeless man.

Welsh Word of the Week

Elis picks out a curious Welsh word.

'Sboncen', meaning squash. 'Chwannen', literally meaning 'flea' but used to call someone cowardly.

Made-Up Games

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

Is This Cool? In a variation of last week's MUG about things being middle of the road, John has come up with one where contestants have to suggest things that are cool.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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