Apocalypse Companions and Varying Accents

Show broadcast on 29 August 2015

It's John's final week in Glasgow Business Park for the year, and as ever he's in an apocalyptic mindset. The boys talk Apocalypse Companions, Elis relives his experience camping at Green Man Festival, and Producer Dave reveals a new look. All this plus Humble Brag Of The Week, Textual Healing, Winner Plays On and Email Of The Species.

John's introduction of Elis

"(Elis' intro of John) The only boy at his school to try an audacious unplanned Fosbury Flop in Year 9."

Conversations and riffs

It's John's final week at the Edinburgh Festival and he's picked up a bit of a Scottish accent... or is it South African?

Producer Dave has got a new bee-themed tattoo.

John would actually like an apocalypse so he could test his prepping skills (and maybe kiss Sarah Wayne Callies from 'The Walking Dead' TV series).

A promo for the Reading and Leeds Festival turns into a riff celebrating the Maccabees and various forms of technology to listen to them on.

Five things John has learned through his experiences at the Edinburgh Festival.

Text-in topic

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

It's an apocalypse - who you with and what ya doin'?

Textual Healing

A listener calls the show with a problem.

The caller and his girlfriend are moving in together but they have not yet been flatulent with each other.


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

So tough when your moral stand against various retailing practices makes your shopping experiences more inconvenient. Did you mention that you were taking a moral stand?

Your dad's knighthood means you could get married in some elite cathedrals where most people can't, but it would be a bit of a faff.

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 Mike Tyson (Elis). Elis wins 5-2.
