Episode 96

An Email Ban, Peter Bjorn and Who & Series 2 of Josh

Show broadcast on 19 December 2015

Elis and John took on their first ever radio play this week in a "table read" (technical term) of a potential new episode of sitcom Josh, before John once again tested Elis' nerve with more hot sauce. Plus Santa Robins delivered some Christmas presents (lucky Dave!), and Elis had news of more flatulence at a gig. All this plus Textual Healing, Winner Plays On, Email Of The Species and Humble Brag Of The Week.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is a man who the National Union of Miners said, 'breathes coal'. "

Conversations and riffs

Elis encountered David Mellor opening the door for people at Global Radio.

Referring to John's gig tale in Episode 94, Elis too was (wrongly) suspected of farting at a gig this week.

John has brought Producer Dave a very special item of Manchester City clothing for Christmas.

The gang read out a script for a possible 'Josh' Season 2 opener sent in by a listener, introducing a role for John Robins.

Textual Healing

A listener calls the show with a problem.

Alastair's hi-fi is broken and he has questions about downloading music. John is concerned with monitoring his iTunes play count.


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

Your biceps have got too big to fit into the shirts you normally buy.

Winner Plays On

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

Mount Everest (John) v Boris Becker (Elis). Elis wins 4-2.

Tick Off a Taste

The gang try a new taste sensation sent in by a listener.

Before tasting became a regular feature, part two of Elis' hot sauce tasting challenge: this week, Psycho Juice! This one brings him to tears.
