Episode 71

Dead Relatives, Hannibal & Weightlifting

Show broadcast on 20 June 2015

Elis may have been a little late this week but he didn't sleep through the whole show, and that's a positive. Alongside your tales of sleeping through things, we heard about John's similarities with Hannibal Lecter, discussed sneezing techniques and referenced 9/11 more than would be expected.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is... absolutely no-one. (Elis turns up late, live during John's show intro.)"

Conversations and riffs

Like Hannibal Lector, all John wants is a view, and now he has one. They are broadcasting from a different studio today and he can see a pub through the window.

The encouraging things Elis said to his girlfriend while she was giving birth and he was hungover.

Debate over how much John and Producer Dave can lift in the gym.

That time John sang 'I'm really cool' throughout each song at a Super Furry Animals gig.

Text-in topic

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

Things you missed because you slept through them.

Textual Healing

A listener calls the show with a problem.

Chris and his fiancée have a romantic meal scheduled for the day after their wedding in the hotel everyone will be staying in. His mum and sister want to stay on an extra day too but how does he avoid them crashing his meal without offending?


More examples of that scourge of social media, the humblebrag.

Stop it with the multiple encores after your show - it means you get home late!

Winner Plays On

Elis and John face off in the weekly quiz on topics of their choice.

The music of Bonnie Prince Billy (John) v the European Cup 1967-93 (Elis). Elis wins 5-2. Elis (in celebration): "Oh! Kiss and fondle me, John, then tell me everything will be alright."

A listener has done some analysis of the relationship between the outcome of the coin toss and the outcome of the quiz in Winner Plays On.

Email of the Species

Listeners' emails into the show.

Anne Robinson knows you need to be on email.

A listener asks why the guys don't have guests on their show.
