- Wis-Duh, Infinite Christian Fish & Chips and What Would Robins Do?
Poor, poor little Robins. He could hardly talk, bless him! Still dragged himself in thought didn't he? John had tonsillitis this week so Elis did the lion's share of the talking. There was still plenty to laugh about though. Not least how Elis is getting on with his daughter's potty training (spoiler: It's not going well). There was also a smashing Made Up Game from listener Matt and it was right up the lads' street. All this plus the usual Humblebrags, a Shame Well read by Elis and a couple of lovely emails.

- Sad Mechanics, Double Beans & WC Shame
This week, you'll find out why dentists are basically like vets and why John felt like a thousand billion dollars! Lucky you! How bad is spitting? More to the point. How bad is graffiti? There's a paper review, Prod V learns that a Tesco breakfast is a thing and John wins the ashes by switch-hitting Elis. All that plus an Anthemic Made Up Game, Humblebrags and a thorough Ronnie O'Sullivan update.

- Robins Returns, MANTASTIC! & 3p Tip
Robins is back from New York but is Robins the lovely Robin? As in.... Is he actually him?! That's one of the listener theories this week. Also, find out why John wants to marry New York barmaids. There's some lovely Ronnie updates, a tricky Made Up Game & a smasher of a paper review from Elis.

- Stranded Robins, Josh Widdicombe & Little Chef Lollies
You can't have escaped that tirade of press coverage... It's the least that can be expected when a man like Robins is stranded stateside and unable to broadcast. Elis soldiered boldly on though, with a stiff upper lip and a determined look in his eye. That was not before enlisting the help of esteemed friend of the show, Josh Widdicombe! Robins still managed to put his two cents in though and (once he was out of bed) joined in the fun from across the pond. A brilliant show with all the Humblebrags, shame and badinage that you'd expect.

- The 200th Podcast!
Hello team! Elis & John hit the 200 mark this week (excluding Bonus Podcasts and no doubt with some counting errors) so they looked back at the past double century of GREAT RIFFING and picked out the best bits.
- 23 Dec 2017
- John's Party, Devvers Presents and Potato Disqualification
199 Episodes you say?! This was a lovely seasonal edition with presents, cheer, togetherness and shame all in abundance. Will you be going to the John Robins Christmas Party? No of course you won't - because only John is going. Producer Devvers, once (and only the once) of this parish joined to bring gifts and japes in his new role as boss of everything. Plus, a Made Up Game, the ever-present Humblebrags, some lovely E-mails and a post-match analysis of comedians football. Merry Christmas PCD's!
- 16 Dec 2017
- Emotionally Allergic, Fundies and PubPlanet
How quickly did John win Elis over? Find out in the 198th show. It was a stonking show with plenty of what we love most. Bags of shame, plenty of self reproach and a good deal of badinage. Did the lads enjoy the snow? What happens at the John Robins Christmas party? All this plus Humblebrags, John's own made up game and some hilarious emails.
- 9 Dec 2017
- Bumblebrag, Out Of The Gutter and Into The Church
John is good with old men. It makes sense. Despite providing a 2 hour closing set for the final Dancing with Dave in London, Elis and John (John less so) were well up for the Saturday afternoon vibe. Is it about the people, or is it about Counting Crows? There's a very strong Paper Review, a new branch of Humblebrag, some lovely emails and another Ronnie O'Sullivan update. No one else is doing them.

- Ronnie's Feet, John's Table Of Things And Cosy Catastrophes
Robins discovers he's got something in common with UK Snooker Champion and former pig farmer, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Elis lets his daughter decorate the Christmas tree and please remember, nothing good ever happens after 2am. In amongst all the usual goodness, Elis recommends an incredibly quiet train station as part of this week's Light-hearted Paper Review and Humblebrag of The Week features a 'forgetful' homeowner.

- We Live in a God-less Chaos, Quint-essentially British and Who Taught You How to Walk?
Welcome to this Quint-essentially British podcast where nobody, and we mean nobody out-pounds Robins. A hum-dinger of a show this week, we've got a great made up game, Elis peruses the papers, light heatedly of course and we ask the eternal question 'Fancy a Curry?'
- 18 Nov 2017
- The Thing I Like, Menstrual Synchrony & John Parrott's Birthday BBQ
You shouldn't keep nostalgic memories in a bin bag. Elis James is full of these wisdoms. Considering the long stint on drive this week, the lads put in a quallo shift - leaving nothing unsaid: Including 'I love you.' Twice. There was a brilliant Made Up Game, a lovely couple of emails and an unfortunate festival-based shame. There was a paper review too, but John was right to question whether or not it was strictly light-hearted.
- 11 Nov 2017
- Bowling, Bike Locks & Peppery Cress
John's confidence is sky high following a heavy night on the lanes, and one listener's stuck in a bike lock, as part of a Shame Well that's sure to go down in history. It turns out neither Elis or John know Taylor Swift exists, although both agree her music would be good for selling a certain cleaning product. Of course, Humblebrags and The Light-Hearted Paper Review both make an appearance too!
- 4 Nov 2017
- The Statistical Middle Point, Band Summariser & Total Turgidity
Do you know somebody who doesn't like beans? Poor wretches. A lovely time was had on this weeks show with a serious stack of emails. In traditional Elis James style, he let his birthday pass with almost no fuss whatsoever, but Robins was on hand with a BIG gift to mark the occasion. As well as all this there were the customary Humblebrags, a top shelf Shame Well, a lovely light-hearted paper review and a made up game.
- 28 Oct 2017
Robins had a bit of a night of it last night. Classic Robins. That didn't stop a complete Hammer show from taking shape though. Elis gave yet more tasty insight into the British film industry and the Queen questions came thick and fast in preparation for John's appearance on Celebrity Mastermind. There were some quallo emails this week too, as well as the usual Humblebrags, Shame Well and a Mod or Rocker Made Up Game!
- 21 Oct 2017
- Nude Elis, Award Vs. Flu & Lukewarm Lager
How early is too early on a Saturday to demand that your neighbours get out of bed and furnish you with your post? Robins will be the judge of that. What's the best reason for missing a train? Looking at an award or a getting your daughters flu-jab? A cracking show today with some of the WORST Humblebrags in Humblebrag history. Also, an absolute Robins bombshell! All this plus the usual Shame Well, Emails & a Made Up Game about Harry Potter!
- 14 Oct 2017
- Sky News Robins, Mints/Mince & The Hubris Dome
Little old Johnny Robins eh? You'll never guess what he's got coming up!? Well listen to the podcast and you won't need to guess. You'll just know. An absolute vintage James & Robins podcast today: There was plenty of shame, a bit of character assassination and all the usual fun too. Emails, a brilliant Made Up Game and so many Humblebrags that it had to be a two-parter! Disgusting.
- 7 Oct 2017
- Please Sir, Min 3 & Never Steam in September
John's had it up to here with the dairy industry. That's just a fact, and he'll tell you himself. A quallo show today with all the right ingredients: Shame, badinage, some emails, humblebrags but definitely no milk. Unless it's some sort of nut milk.
- 30 Sep 2017
- Bum End, I'll take bum & The Grumpiest Angel in Heaven
If you're going to have a replacement, you may as well have a replacement who's as easy on the eye as Ed Gamble. Have you seen that jaw!? Elis was away on Welsh stand up duties and Ed filled in brilliantly. It was a 'bum' heavy show, but that's just the way it goes sometimes. There was a Humblebrag update (thought to be a first for the medium), a reminiscent Made Up Game, a cracking (bum pun) Paper Review and plenty of quallo badinage.
- 23 Sep 2017
- I want my life back, Renault Keith & The 10 Plagues
You knew that John only had 6 moods right? It one of Elis' favourite ones today in a cracking show. Is Nicole Kidman warmer than William Hague? Possibly. But Why? It'll all become clear. Potentially. There's the Humblebrags, a light-hearted paper review, some gale force shame and a load of cracking emails!
- 16 Sep 2017
- Peter Freestone, GESTATION! & Van Morrison's First Thing
All needs are natural needs. Robins is tired and James is off to watch Swansea in a bit. It's a story as old as time. This week's podcast was an absolute stonker. Stinking shame (literally), ever-persistent Humblebrags, a trio of upbeat Emails and a CLASSIC Made Up Game. Should bananas have an apostrophe? Absolutely not. What do Wasabi Kit-Kats taste like? You'll find out.
