Episode 5

Weird collections, objects with the best throwing weight, baby voice-ingtons, and much more.

Show broadcast on 16 March 2014

Elis and John are back and this week, inspired by John's childhood Farthing Set, they're taking on a range of strange collections, including the usual stacks of old NMEs and the less usual boxes of scabs. Plus their collection of youth slang continues to grow, with a handy recap ICYMI. The usual features are back too, with Pink Floyd questioned in Sacred Cows, John's Ronnie O'Sullivan taking on Elis' Manic Street Preachers in The Winner Plays On and a Textual Healing concern regarding baby voices and in joke-ingtons.
