Episode 80

The Ethical Code Of A Freemason

Show broadcast on 22 August 2015

More tales from John's gigs in Edinburgh this week, plus Elis' struggles with social interactions, and tales of Producer Dave hobnobbing with celebrities. And of course, there's Email Of The Species, Textual Healing, Winner Plays On and Humble Brag Of The Week.

Podcast intro

A PCD tried to coin the phrase 'One quallo does not a summer make' at work but it fell very flat.

John's introduction of Elis

"(Elis' intro of John) To my north, broadcasting from a business park in Glasgow, it's John Robins. "

Conversations and riffs

John imagines being the lone human broadcaster in a post-apocalyptic world.

Elis was at a social gathering where he was trying to introduce people to each other but forgot their names even though he knew them all.

Text-in topic

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

A euphemistic tale of Producer Dave going camping with former Big Brother winner and broadcaster Kate Lawler. What famous people do you know or have you done stuff with?

Textual Healing

A listener calls the show with a problem.

The caller's friends no longer want to go to the pub but spend all their time at the gym or drinking protein shakes from "big cups".

Welsh Word of the Week

Elis picks out a curious Welsh word.

A listener has suggested Elis start a 'Welsh Word of the Week' feature, so he starts with the Welsh word for squash - 'sponcen' - which English learners of Welsh find particularly amusing.

(This won't become an official feature until episode 236.)

Winner Plays On

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

John Robins at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2005 - present day (John) v Chris Tarrant (Elis). John wins 4-1.
