Elis can’t be arsed. This much will become clear. He clearly cares enough to sort his teeth out though! A cracking podcast this week as John rejoined Elis in the studio.

Episode 173 – Mike Bubbins, The Cravens & Louboutins  

An approachable but sexy podcast today…. Mike Bubbins sat in for Elis and brought sideburns, sex-appeal and a relaxed attitude to shame. Robins calls on the powers that be to introduce “normal” carriages on trains. Silent coaches are much too stressful for all of us and it’s an issue that needs addressing. A complex Beta Bet, some foul Humblebrags and a tense moment when Mike described Freddie Mercury as the 2nd best entertainer of all time.
