Episode 261

Medium Testosterone, Feeds & The A-Z of Music

Show broadcast on 9 March 2019

You have no idea how high John can fly. Today, we answer the questions, what do you get for the man that has everything, how many Blue Tits do Elis & John weigh and what exactly is John Kennedy doing in that tree.

Podcast intro

Following on from recent discussions on the show: why international rugby union is popular in the parts of the world that it is, and PCDs with synaethesia describe what it's like.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, a member of the crew of 'Kind Linda', a 44-person vessel aiming to be the first to cross the Irish Sea from Wales. Carrying grain, mead and a limited selection of livestock, they hope to trade with Irish natives for electronic goods such as Discmen, AAA batteries and solar-powered calculators that are scarce on mainland Wales. It's Petty Officer Elis James. "

Conversations and riffs

John had a good week and is "not fighting against my life" anymore. Meanwhile, Elis had his testosterone measured through Facebook.

Elis' fiancée once painted his favourite foods for him as a birthday present.

Text-in topic

Listeners text and tweet during the show on this week's topic.

A tale of a declined marriage proposal in public at Harry Potter World. Do you have any tales of marriage proposals going wrong?

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

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

Nick Knowles has six toes on one foot and can hold a screwdriver with it. Wheelie bin vigilantism. Fantasy and nature help boost children's grammar. Elis challenges John on why Harry Potter and The Hobbit aren't more realistic.

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

Adding people to a Twitter list called 'Really Boring People' then much later realising they can see the name of the list.

Made-Up Games

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

How Many Bees? Using the website one person enters their weight (or the weight of one of the other contestants) and nominates an animal then other players have to guess what quantity of that animal is equivalent to that person's weight. Whoever gets closest to the figure on the website wins the round.

In an impromptu Made Up Game, Elis and John have the duration of two songs to each come up with an A-Z of bands or music artists, and compare.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

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

Podcast outro

Underwear chat: John's fiancée has just texted him to report back after putting on an essential washing load of his pants and socks. Meanwhile Elis is down to his "second eleven" reserve squad of pants and does not want to resort to the third eleven.
