What a week as the boys covered Drive. This podcast will oscillate wildly, just like the mood of (most of) the nation (England), but luckily Elis & John kept a steady hand on the tiller. Enjoy.

Episode 227 – Indie World Cup, Childcare Permitting & Queen Eye For The Gay Guy
Sometimes, John wants to put out his eyes. Other times he’s just lobbying Elis to say YES. It was a show that critics may have called “distracted” given the football vibes moving through the studio – but there wasn’t one moment where the badinage was in question. You can still expect Humblebrags, John’s gig diaries and almost a third of the show dedicated to something that was definitely NOTHING to do with FIFA.

Episode 201 – 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. Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on e-mail.
