What with Wales suddenly being good at football Elis was once again in France this week, but joined John down the line from his hotel room, where he eagerly awaited the arrival of an ironing board.

- Double Denim, Tote Bags & A Tour Of Toulouse Airport
Elis was in France again this week, keeping up with Wales at the Euros and, more importantly, finding out which car rental companies operate in Toulouse. John, meanwhile, had some new clothing to show off, and the boys discussed Nigerian finances and Nutella. All this plus Humble Brag Of The Week, Email Of The Species and Winner Plays On.

- Football Songs, Tax Records & Lonely Legends
This week Elis is in France, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology his dulcet tones could still be heard on Radio X shores, as he joined John down the line from his hotel room (in his pants). Said modern technology hampers an anecdote about Elis meeting one of his heroes, but thanks to the team's perseverance, the anecdote does not go unfinished. John, meanwhile, explains how to navigate using just a watch, and embarks on a solitary Tick Off a Taste. All this, plus Humble Brag of the Week, Email of the Species and Winner Plays On.

- Noisy Neighbours, Massages & Anarchy
Elis and John have both experienced troubles this week, but in very different ways. John was scheduled in for a relaxing trip to the spa, but, due to some miscommunication, his massage didn't quite go to plan. Elis, on the other hand, was kept up all night by noisy neighbours so John offers some sage advice. All this, plus Humble Brag of the Week, Winner Plays On and Email of the Species.
- 28 May 2016
- Bushcraft, Bands In Small Places & Kazakh Billlionaires
This week we relive John's much anticipated bushcraft course through an audio diary recorded by the man himself. Was he able to whittle a spoon out of wood? Did he manage to pass the course? And what was the toilet situation? Rest assured, all of these questions, and more, are answered. Meanwhile, Elis is accused of cheating the system in Winner Plays On, and recounts the time he nearly compared himself to a famous civil rights leader during a stand up routine.
- 21 May 2016
- Corgi Registration, Living In A Bivouac & Individual Business Units
This week we can all take a trip down Elis' shame well with some linguistic comedy, and we catch a glimpse of how this comedy came to be as Elis reminisces about a stand-up course he once attended. Meanwhile John has been preparing for a bushcraft course, endorsed by one of his heroes. All this plus Winner Plays On, Email Of The Species, a new Tick Off A Taste, Textual Healing, Humble Brag Of The Week and the Keep It Session Sessions.

- Facebook Safe Space, Eurovision Translated & #smh
Elis and John were talking petty grudges this week, and inevitably moved on to football stickers and Harry Potter. But there were new topics too - Magnum Chocolate Theft, the wordplay of Paul McCartney and plenty of hot chat. All this plus the usual Winner Plays On (high-scoring this week), Email Of The Species, Humble Brag Of The Week, Textual Healing and of course the conclusion of last week's cliffhanger in Elis' Gig Diaries.

- Rescuing The Afternoon!
Welcome to this week's podcast from the brand new time slot of Saturday of 1pm - 4pm! Not a huge change, you'd assume, and you're largely correct - it's still the same badinage, the same features, the same top quality riffing - but this time with the added threat that John may take a nap at any minute. We've got tales of Producer Dave's trip to Bristol on a stag do, Elis encountering a cockney in a pub, and the final answer to the question we've all been asking- will John appear in Series 2 of Josh? All this plus the usual Humble Brag Of The Week, Gig Diaries, Textual Healing, Winner Plays On and Keep It Session Sessions. New time, same great show.

- Precious, Metal Fans & Robins Unleashed
The last ever Saturday 10-1 show this week, as the boys are moving to a new time slot (more info in the podcast), but that doesn't mean an end to any of the badinage. This week we're treated to John's university radio shows, and if you can imagine a drunk lone Robins talking about Lou Reed for 2 hours then you'll be very prepared for what you're about to hear. There's also a glimpse into Johnny Vaughan's Drive time show, some travel advice, and an imagined peak into Producer Dave's marriage. Plus all the usual - Textual Healing, Winner Plays On, Humble Brag Of The Week (note the spelling of 1ère), Email Of The Species, Elis' Gig Diaries and the return of Tick Off A Taste.

In a week in which Elis apparently lived out one of John's fantasies, the boys also quizzed Producer Dave on his recent appearance at the National Student Radio Conference. There was also a bumper delivery of double Gig Diaries from Elis, and John ingested a bit of drug live on air, alongside a super important announcement in the podcast intro.

A technological revelation in this week's podcast astounded Elis & John, and there was a revelation in Textual Healing too as the boys were actually able to solve a listener's problem.
