- Memory Boxes, Mezze & Keep It Bush Craft
Elis stood John up to empty his memory box including two bagged beards while John got sentimental over old pay slips begging the question: what strange paraphernalia have you kept over the years? Elis discusses the cool 'vibes' of Hackney and John puts his Traffic Cops knowledge to use by advising listeners to not drink and babysit. Plus Tick Off A Taste, Winner Plays On, Humble Brag Of The Week, Elis' Gig Diaries, and Email Of The Species.

- Tick Off A Taste
The team try an exotic 'foreign food', Elis's dialect is brought into serious question, and it turns out a certain somebody doesn't take listener criticism very well at all.

- Geographically Specific Names, Footy & Bar Mitzvahs
Elis waxes lyrical about Bar Mitzvahs and his experiences with multiple compliments from 1ers during the week.

- Hashtags, Presents & Perhaps The Tensest Winner Plays On Yet
Happy New Year! Elis and John are back, and nothing's changed - expect thoughts on a nuclear apocalypse, an outside opinion on casting for Josh, and the usual overload of Welsh and Queen references. There's a new feature - Elis' Gig Diaries - and of course the usual Winner Plays On (it's incredible this week. Remember farthing-gate?), and Humble Brag Of The Week.

A special Christmas treat this week as Elis and John look back over their last year and pick out the highlights. Expect vintage Textual Healing, late John, drunk Elis, the strangest prawn-based riff you can imagine, and much more.

- An Email Ban, Peter Bjorn and Who & Series 2 of Josh
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.
- 12 Dec 2015
- Elis & John's Target Audience & The Return of Hot Sauce
Elis showcased just how much he's changed this week as he took on The End, the hottest chilli sauce Cardiff Christmas Market has to offer. John and Elis also explored their target demographic, asking how listeners and podcast devotees could recognise each other. And on top of this, John gave advice on how to "be normal". Of course there's also Humble Brag Of The Week, Winner Plays On and Email Of The Species.

- Don't Look At Me, Look At Freddie!
John and Elis both revealed the petty arguments they've had with their respective girlfriends this week, and in turn you provided stories of your squabbles (and washing up advice).

All this plus Humble Brag Of The Week, Email Of The Species, and Winner Plays On - this week with "laughs and gaffs".
- 21 Nov 2015
- Celebrity Opportunities Missed
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.
- 14 Nov 2015
Another working class Londoner impression for you this week (we miss you Little Georgie Ezra), as well as the inevitable response to Josh, the new sitcom starring famous thespian Elis James. John questions some football facts, whether one can operate multiple twitter accounts, and what the names of other people are. Of course there's Humble Brag Of The Week, Winner Plays On, and Email Of The Species too.
- 7 Nov 2015
- Auf Wiedersehn, Pet
Shambolic, in a nice way - Producer Dave's assessment of this week's humdinger of a podcast. There's Ainsley Harriott chat, tales of Producer Dave's encounter with a bouncer, Elis' birthday hat-trick and John says something about Queen as usual. All that, plenty more, plus Winner Plays On, Humble Brag Of The Week and a quite exceptional Textual Healing
- 31 Oct 2015
- The Major Bones of Contention
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'.
- 24 Oct 2015
- The Perfect Scam
After a heavy Thursday night, Elis tries his best to piece back together the 'lost' hours of Friday morning, with the help of the listeners. Elsewhere within this audible treat, both John and Elis enlighten the nation with some of the more bizarre 'street' names for marijuana. PLUS, the debate of dodgy scams took a turn for the illegal, as John revealed one of his own, which he insists would get him straight into heaven. All the usual features are here as well (Textual Healing, Winner Plays On, Humble Brag of the Week), so get stuck in!
- 17 Oct 2015
- Squirrels With Attitude
Two topics with unexpected reactions this week - first, John's mention of "escaping the noise of life" lead to plenty of suggestions for where he should relocate to, and John's heroic treatment of a distressed squirrel provoked many animals-out-of-place stories as well. Meanwhile Elis gave us a fantastic/unrecognisable impression, and of course the boys oversaw Textual Healing, Winner Plays On and Humble Brag Of The Week.
- 10 Oct 2015
- Tick Tock Robins
An eventful show this week from Elis James and...erm...wait a minute...hang on...John Robins. The boys eventually got through Winner Plays On, Email Of The Species and Humble Brag Of The Week, but there was a bit of a hold-up first. Remember this week, the week that John "dropped an Elis".
- 3 Oct 2015
- Surrealist Comedy & 0.0% Robins
Elis and John take on health fads this week, and Producer Dave is back alongside the boys. Elis also gives us his take on both the decline of premiership footballer John Terry and how to write surrealist comedy, whilst John has continued to stay off the booze, resulting in further improvements in the condition of his skin. There's a welcome return for Textual Healing, and as always we've got Winner Plays On, Email Of The Species and Humble Brag Of The Week.
