Episode 89

The Major Bones of Contention

Show broadcast on 31 October 2015

Greetings on this Hallows Eve. Enjoy this treat, or more likely trick, of a podcast as John regales us with his creepy tale of horror. Delve further into this treasure trove of audio and you'll hear John, ever the entrepreneur, consider setting up his own tobacco farm as Elis defies Government advice and promotes 'responsible smoking'. The guys also empathise or criticise listeners' very own major bones of contention within the household - is John a bit of an Adolf Heat-ler? And of course what would this podcast be without your old favourites, 'Textual Healing', 'Humble Brags' and 'Winner Stays On'.

Podcast intro

Following last week's text-in subject, more tales of being scammed in an impressive manner.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is the first man to successfully scale Pengelli in an iron lung. "

Conversations and riffs

Appropriate for Halloween, John tells the spooky tale of... Spider Ghost!

John considers growing his own tobacco and Elis has some advice on using tobacco responsibly.

Producer Dave hands John a note to read out but John refuses to broadcast Dave's unsympathetic policies about the poor so reads out a Chris Moyles promo instead.

John has a tip for postponing your imminent execution if you were on Death Row.

Text-in topic

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

John and his girlfriend differ over what setting the central heating should be at. Elis' girlfriend leaves cupboard and drawer doors open. Re-using teabags. Egg bum tea. Comedy's Russell Howard leaving teeth around the flat.

What are the major bones of contention in your household?


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

It's really got you down how everyone has been saying that your partner is punching above their weight to be in a relationship with someone as amazing as you.
