Celebrity Opportunities Missed
Show broadcast on 21 November 2015
With perhaps the most professional episode yet, welcome to another Elis James and John Robins podcast. Once again John had a bone to pick with Elis over Winner Plays On, and the boys also took us through Humble Brag Of The Week, Email Of The Species and Textual Healing. On top of that, we heard your stories of celebrity meetings that didn't reach their potentials, and Elis' thighs got some more well-deserved coverage.

Winner Plays On
Elis and John face off in the weekly quiz on topics of their choice.
It's been pointed out that Elis accidentally asked John a question on Brass Eye last week, instead of the chosen subject The Day Today. This week: Auf Wiedersehn, Pet (Elis) v Van Morrison (John). John wins 3.5-1. Another live version of the AWP theme tune - it just keeps getting better!
Although it wasn't needed, in a rare occurrence it turns out Elis won the pre-arranged tiebreaker question (about average rainfall in the UK in October).
Email of the Species
