    Retro RHLSTP 13 - Louis Theroux

    #13 Pathetic - Richard is very excited to meet the man who made him give up viewing porn (temporarily), Groove is in the Heart dancer and park ranger Louis Theroux. With a bad choice of words Richard almost Merchants the podcast early on and the interviewer becomes the interviewee as Herring gets Therouxed and opens up about his pre-marital life.


    Will he be the subject of one of Louis’ future documentaries? Can there be a more insulting thing to happen to a person given the broken people he generally focuses on. Louis’ interview with Jimmy Savile is analysed in depth. Should he have spotted the monster lurking beneath the surface? Plus revelations about fagging for Nick Clegg, the bullying of Max Clifford and having your bits ripped off by a chimp. It’s a fascinating 90 minute chat, more serious than usual, but still very funny.

    #338 Papier Mache Penguin - Richard’s phone is trying to make his life a lot more interesting and Richard is concerned about his stinky sweat, but luckily his guest, Isy Suttie, is socially distanced and safe.

    Retro RHLSTP 12 - Armando Iannucci

    #12 Jeffrey Archer's Carp - Rich has been laid down low with an admittedly indirectly sexually transmitted disease, but nothing can stop him from starting this 10th and now kickstarted series. His guest once dreamed of being a Roman Catholic Priest, but luckily chose a less religious route, it's Armando Iannucci. The pair discuss the rivalry and tensions in the world of classical music, what a post-Brexit Thick Of It might look like, the death of Stalin, how Veep was created, what you can find in the houses of former Tory ministers, and how close Iannucci came to being trampled by a hippo.

    RHLSTP 337 - David Baddiel

    #337 Thirty Years of Thirty Years of Hurt - Richard has somehow managed to not damage his son during a week of solo parenting, but only just, but he’s had an experience that sums up the British holiday experience. His guest will reveal which animal he would prefer to have a conversation with, it’s David Baddiel. 


    They talk about failing to get your expenses back from your comedy heroes, why Richard Herring is the funniest person that could lose a nut, whether it’s time for a follow up to Three Lions, nostalgia comedy, dealing with trolls - the short game and the long game and Googling zipper accidents  


    Plus some serious chat about David’s excellent book, “Jews Don’t Count” https://www.amazon.co.uk/Untitled-David-Baddiel/dp/0008399476/

    Retro RHLSTP 11 - Sara Pascoe

    #11 Kamikaze Sperm - Even though eight days have passed since the Half-Marathon, Richard still aches like it was all just yesterday. But he will soon forget his woes when he chats to the great-grandaughter of music writer Rosa Newmarch (and you never know who her great-grandfather might have been), Sara Pascoe.


    In what is one of Rich's favourite ever RHLSTPs the chat encompasses whether a vegan can eat a ham hand, how a six foot tall penis man would cope with his terrible life, what it's like to be part of a younger generation of comedians who are about to storm the comedy citadel and claim their rightful crown, and why there should be more women on Would I Lie To You?.


    Sara and Richard chat about how they fell in love (with other people) as their significant others possibly get together in the darkness of the auditorium.

    RHLSTP 336 - John Robins

    #336 Watching Brian May Have Sex - Richard has had his audience analysed and you won’t believe how many of them come from the Vatican City. No matter. His guest costs £43.50 on Cameo and is called John Robins. They chat about their chances of making money in the boxing ring, appearing in a comic, being unnecessarily informed about the bad response to your material from a comedy herol, the lights going out in a dying cat’s eyes, apples versus conkers, creating your own pub and coming back to stand up (or not) after lockdown. Plus an all important rowing machine report and how Richard plans to make cancer regret ever tangling with him.

Mais ou trouve-il ces idées fou?

Je trouve que cette podcast est très chic.

Please don’t stop. Keep them coming.
In my top three poddies ever. Every episode (except the two with an obnoxious guest) is brilliant.
Great job Gamcaster.
