John’s going to be shameful, Elis is going to be sexy. These are facts and they are constant. This week, the lads explored “Sportz Chat” and compared puberty cakes. There was a toilet-related Shame Well, a well-funded Welsh Word of The Week and a return to the wonder that is the “Rush Hour Crush”.

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.

Oh, and there’s Humble Brags, Googling The Travel, Shame Wells and the usual stuff too. It’ll all be fine, despite of factors! Keep it session. Keep it Radio X. Love...

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.
