    #220 - Batican City, Vape Island and The Dave Dollar

    They say that if you give a man a fish you can feed him for a day, but teach a man to fish and you can feed him for a lifetime. But what happens if you give two radio presenters 11 different screens in a single studio? I’ll tell you what happens: they'll produce radio that’s exciting and groundbreaking in equal measure, and that’s something you just can’t teach.

    To get us into the mood for festival season Elis and John speak to a a Glastonbury Unsung Hero, John flexes his geographical muscles in a Made Up Game, Elis struggles to pinpoint a Welsh accent and Producer Dave details his bleak Friday (live from the comfort of MediaCityUK).

    #219 - An Irish Odyssey with John Robins: Episode Three

    #219 - An Irish Odyssey with John Robins: Episode Three

    To celebrate entering his fifth decade John Robins decided to undertake the trip of a lifetime.

    He packed up his beloved compact SUV (the make and model of which will definitely become clear) with a bag of golf clubs, a microphone and a sense of adventure and left rural Buckinghamshire for his destination: Ireland.

    He went in search of answers, but ended up finding something much more important: content.

    It’s the final part of John’s windy journey around Ireland, and in this episode he explores the pubs of Belfast, Andrew Ryan offers some sage ulcer advice, and John looks ahead to his next adventure.

    #218 - An Irish Odyssey with John Robins: Episode Two

    To celebrate entering his fifth decade John Robins decided to undertake the trip of a lifetime.

    He packed up his beloved compact SUV (the make and model of which will definitely become clear) with a bag of golf clubs, a microphone and a sense of adventure and left rural Buckinghamshire for his destination: Ireland.

    He went in search of answers, but ended up finding something much more important: content.

    With the wind in his sails (often being picked up by his microphone) John celebrates his first night in Ireland with a lovely sit-down meal before heading for his first round of golf with host of ‘Diary of a High Handicapper’ and rival SUV owner Jamie.

    He then heads north to meet up with fellow comedian Andrew Ryan, where they play MORE golf and discuss one of Elis James’s most famous stand-up routines.

    #217 - An Irish Odyssey with John Robins: Episode One

    To celebrate entering his fifth decade John Robins decided to undertake the trip of a lifetime.

    He packed up his beloved compact SUV (the make and model of which will definitely become clear) with a bag of golf clubs, a microphone and a sense of adventure and left rural Buckinghamshire for his destination: Ireland.

    He went in search of answers, but ended up finding something much more important: content.

    In the first episode of this three part series John makes the long journey up the M6, takes in the beautiful scenery of North Wales (featuring some questionable pronunciation) and prepares to set sail for the Emerald Isle.

    #216 - Har Cire, Twin Leaks and Lashing With Livesey

    With the people of London basking in some of the best weather we’ve seen this year Elis and John raised the temperature even more with some red hot broadcasting that certainly left Producer Dave sweating at times. But like a perfectly balanced see-saw they were able to level out the sweltering heat with some of the coolest anecdotes out there (most notably one involving Elis playing Nirvana on an electric guitar).

    As well as all the usual fun Elis shares a scripted intro that can almost be classed as a one-liner, John offers an apology to the listeners of 5 Live and Producer Dave dons his mortar board for a Key Stage 2 themed Made Up Game.

    #215 - Rum of Thorns, Stat Chat and Macca’s Margarita

    If you were to ask John Robins to describe today’s show he’d probably call it a whole load of foxtrot, uniform, November (or for those that detest the phonetic alphabet: fun). The nods and winks were working like a charm and the chemistry between radio’s most dynamic duo was at an all time high; and even a controversial Made Up Game wasn’t going to change that!

    We caught up with resident statistician Ross to commemorate a 5 Live milestone, Elis gave us an update on his housing situation, John demonstrated a questionable understanding of human anatomy and a Shame Well left everyone reeling.

Ireland with a Kia

Since published I have listened about 10 times to all three episodes . It’s so rich in sense of travel / experience / doom ( the ferry episode is hilarious) JR is a master in drawing the listener into any topic even the state of toilets at Stafford service station. John you should sell the movie rights. See if bill Murray and Wes Anderson are free. . A kind of Gaelic Lost in Translation. Can’t wait for Scotland. JR ( and EJ and DM ) We love you.
