    RHLSTP Book Club 102 - James Wright

    RHLSTP Book Club 102 - James Wright

    Book Club #102 - Richard talks to archaeologist and trained stonemason James Wright about his terrific book busting some of the myths about ancient buildings. They chat about why people wrongly believe that spiral staircases are often clockwise, how castles were bling rather than defensive, why you can’t trust anything written on a pub, why stonemasons carved grotesque and pornographic sculptures on churches (and pre-empted one of Richard’s best known emergency questions), what the marks left on buildings might have meant and why the truth in most of these cases is far more interesting than the lies.

    RHLSTP 508 - Maisie Adam

    RHLSTP 508 - Maisie Adam

    #508 Matterface - Richard is back in Brighton and is aghast at the local news of rude waiters and big cats. His guest is football mad stand up Maisie Adam. They discuss how a choice in a writers’ room they were both in led one of their careers to sky rocket (but which one), the disappointment of the wrong Royal at the Variety Performance and how maracas were the sign of a job well done, playing in Soccer Aid the day after your wedding, a Tipping Point humiliation and taking a job where you might get crushed by a boulder.

    RHLSTP Book Club 101 - Janey Godley

    RHLSTP Book Club 101 - Janey Godley

    Book Club #101 - JANEY: The Woman That Won't Shut Up - Richard talks to brilliant comedian, author, actor and agitator Janey Godley about her fab autobiography Janey. They discuss living with a cancer that you know will kill you, why she wanted to be honest about the horrors and laughter that cancer brings and why survival is nothing to do with the person with cancer. Plus dealing with trolls, a brush with the stalker from Baby Reindeer, knitting a scarf for a film star, being friends with Billy Connolly, the sexism she experienced in the early days of stand up, her even more brilliant book Handstands in the Dark and how we all have to be aware of our mortality.

    RHLSTP 507 - Rufus Jones

    #507 Jackie Chan and the 700 Mops - Richard has come to the Brighton Komedia with plans to Mount Everest and a surprising testicular fact. His guest is writer and actor Rufus Jones. They discuss the mystery of the year of Rufus’ birth, getting pissed with Terry Jones, playing an American president with a squeaky voice, the magnificent achievement of the sitcom Home and being observed whilst acting nude, the ever changing technology of supermarket shopping, why Rich will never download Royal Match and the best place to write (if you are not a professional Uno player).

    RHLSTP Book Club 100 - Joel Morris

    Book Club #100 - Be Funny or Die - In our 100th Book Club podcast Richard talks to comedy writer Joel Morris about his frog dissecting book, Be Funny Or Die, which promises to reveal the secret of comedy and does a pretty decent job of doing so. They discuss what makes a good and a terrible catchphrase, how no comedian can make everyone laugh and why they shouldn’t want to, the tribal nature of comedy, whether comedy is by definition offensive to someone, the power of shared laughter in an inappropriate situation, how to let everyone in on in jokes and much more,.

WaterFish3 ,

If I could give it six stars, I would probably still give it a five (joking!)

I was hanging out with Brian Blessed and Adam Buxton the other day. We were all talking about how great men with beards are, when one of them said “Does anyone still listen to RHLSTP?” That’s what they called it. And I said yeah, it’s the best. If you don’t know already, Richard is probably best known, best known for his work on the BBC 4 radio program “Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World”. That’s why I tuned in originally. But look, I can’t imagine anyone who regularly listened to podcasts hasn’t at least had a crack at one of Richard’s podcast streams, but if you haven’t, and appreciate a good laugh, I’d highly recommend giving it a try. If I could give it six stars, I’d probably still give it five (joking!).

Mais ou trouve-il ces idées fou?

Je trouve que cette podcast est très chic.

WiddyAnna ,

Please sir, can I have some more

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.
