Episode 83

Festival Amendments

Show broadcast on 12 September 2015

Top announcements on this week's podcast, but don't fear, it's good news. John gave Elis advice on motorway diversions, Elis nearly became too patriotic to broadcast, and the boys took your thoughts on what should be banned from festivals. All that plus the usual Textual Healing, Winner Plays On, Email Of The Species and Humble Brag Of The Week.

Podcast intro

Elis tries to coin the phrase "Maximum shunting" in relation to a big drinking (not keeping it)session but John prefers "Swig-fest 2015".

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is the fourth Carmarthenshire resident to be banned from Cyprus. "

Conversations and riffs

Elis got stuck travelling in a circle on a road diversion and opted to 'ring a Robins' for traffic support.

Text-in topic

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

The guys chat modern middle class music festivals and all that comes with them. What things would you like to ban from festivals?

Textual Healing

A listener calls the show with a problem.

How should Sylvan decorate the alcoves in his spare room?


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

How embarrassing! You had to hunt out the issue of Men's Health magazine with your cover shoot on from your local newsagents (and pose for a photo with the magazine).

Humblebrag of the week goes to Elis James: When that photo of you on the beers in Cyprus on a football away trip goes viral and you keep getting recognised.

Winner Plays On

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

Pulp (John) v Gareth Bale (Elis). John wins 3.5 - 3.

Email of the Species

Listeners' emails into the show.

John Robins' "current girlfriend" has emailed the show with some points to address about John and the podcast.
