Episode 64

Live Email Analysis, Blind Loyalty, Birthday Refusal & Elis' Stilton Legs

Show broadcast on 2 May 2015

Welcome back. Elis and John heard about your devotion and loyalty to bands, sports teams and events this week, before doling out fashion advice - blue is in this summer - and BROADCASTING LIVE EMAIL ANALYSIS. Alongside John preparing the guestlist (and wifi) for his birthday, there's Textual Healing, A Robins Amongst The Pigeons, Winner Plays On and Email of the Species.

Podcast intro

Further to a previous episode, John received more artificial grass samples in the post that he did not request. To get to the bottom of it he calls the company that sent them.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is Llangollen's premier lightweight and birthday refuser. "

Conversations and riffs

It's John's birthday on 4 May but Elis cannot make it as he has a gig at the Machynlleth Comedy Festival (like most comedians except John). Also, Producer Dave can't make it because it would be too late a night for someone who has to get up early to do producing the next day.

Elis was heckled by a cockney during a gig in a London pub this week.

Elis had an anxiety dream about being recognised for his role in BBC 3 comedy 'Crims' (not 'Crimes') and turned upon by a crowd. John: "Good job it's not being recommissioned."

Elis and John are joined on the phone by a senior email analyst to talk about the emerging technology.

Text-in topic

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

John is going to take his laptop to the pub at his birthday gathering so he can watch the snooker. What strange things have you done in the name of your devotion to a sport, band or similar passion?
