Bin-Gate: The Second Coming

Show broadcast on 5 September 2015

Elis and John are reunited this week, John returning from Edinburgh and Elis from watching Wales away in Cyprus - expect stories of larging it, and going viral. The boys take on another bin-based debate (moving from lounges to outdoors), and there's the usual Textual Healing, Winner Plays On and Humble Brag Of The Week.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is only the fourth Welshman to obtain a license for the farming of porpoise for its meat. "

Conversations and riffs

John is back from Edinburgh and Elis is back from Cyprus where he watched the Welsh national football team play. He takes us through his weekend there, which included 'Ales, ales, Jägerbomb, ales', tops-off and Elis falling fast asleep in the pub at the end. There's a picture of him in the pub surrounded by 30 blokes he doesn't know. Elis was invited to appear on Radio 4 to talk about the experience but replied that he would be s***-faced, which then went viral.

Elis comes up with a potential new slogan for Xfm: "Isn't modern music confusing?" Both he and John are feeling older than their "planet years".

John often has to replace his underwear due to holes created by readjustment - he needs boxer shorts with a slim waste and a low-slung crotch (humblebrag?)

Text-in topic

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

Is it acceptable to put stuff in someone else's wheelie bin?

Textual Healing

A listener calls the show with a problem.

Chris can't collapse his ironing board.
