Episode 87

Squirrels With Attitude

Show broadcast on 17 October 2015

Two topics with unexpected reactions this week - first, John's mention of "escaping the noise of life" lead to plenty of suggestions for where he should relocate to, and John's heroic treatment of a distressed squirrel provoked many animals-out-of-place stories as well. Meanwhile Elis gave us a fantastic/unrecognisable impression, and of course the boys oversaw Textual Healing, Winner Plays On and Humble Brag Of The Week.

Podcast intro

The topic of sit-down wees re-emerges and John and Elis differ on whether or not it is OK to skip washing your hands after going for a wee. Or will you pick up more germs by touching the tap, hand dryer handle, etc?
