    #317 Sex Whisk - Richard has been in a Total Recall machine (or something like that) but is worried about the manufacturer. His guest has cut her own hair and has thought a lot of Star Trek TNG, it’s the brilliant Iszi Lawrence. 


    They discuss Doctor Who self-fellatio, teenage Jesus and his crazy pranks, the little known but most prolific serial killer possibly in the world, but definitely in Reading and Elizabeth I’s crazy ass signature. Plus what happens when your balls might kill you and the martial arts skills of the Suffragettes.

    #316 Skating With Eight Year Olds - Richard is back at the Clapham Grand in front of a virtual audience of humans and potentially racist puppets. His guest is his ex-Fubar radio sidekick Lou Sanders.

    They discuss working for the man who ruined the Muppet Christmas Carol, shaving mishaps, lockdown content, how dying at a charity gig led to actual death threats and the best positioning for a home urinal. Plus the best kebabs in Shepherd’s Bush.

    #314 Have You Ever Seen A Ghost? - Richard is excited that he’s about to get out into an actual theatre to record some shows and that he’s getting his hoover fixed by a shady, underground pensioner. His guest is the brains behind the fabulous Battersea Poltergeist and Haunted podcasts, Danny Robins. 


    They discuss how Robins was Trotskyed from AIOTM, why we’re obsessed with fear and ghosts, the possible historical and psychological reasons for their existence and Richard’s haunted house. Also when spoof reality shows become reality, travelling round the country in a van encouraging men to w**k, how Danny had an accidental hit record (but didn’t get on Top of the Pops) and the differences between the Swedes and the British.

    #313 A Shrek Versus A Grinch - Richard is furious that homeschooling is carrying on til March 8th (at least) but has made a snowman with a feature that Raymond Briggs never foresaw (no, not that). His guest is the unique and brilliant Ashley Storrie. They talk about aliens, visiting yourself through time, diagnosing autism and its place in comedy, whether TV executives are afraid of women, Scottishness or swearing and how Ashley conquered the internet. But mostly we find out whether people or green fictional characters can change.

    #312 The Holy Grail of Archaeology - Richard is upset by a bottle of bathroom spray - and angry at Ian Vim for not having faith in his name, but he’s also a film star now, so you’re lucky he’s doing this at all. His guest is archaeologist Dr Sophie Hay. 


    They discuss the ethics of showing a 2000 year old man’s penis on the news, what to do if you’re caught in a volcano, Latin graffiti, why the childish Romans were obsessed with cocks, whether pomegranates hold the key to the date of the eruption and whether Richard’s four weeks of archaeology make him more qualified than Sophie. Plus ghosts, time travel and what we’d take home with us if we were allowed.

RHLSTP!!

My friend suggested this podcast to me, and at first I was a bit phased by how many episodes there were, but Richard is hilarious and every show has been brilliant.
I have now listened to every single episode from the very beginning.
Very funny and very interesting podcasts which I highly recommend!
Some of the best episodes have been with people I’ve never heard of, so don’t just skip the unfamiliar names as you’re missing some absolute gold!

Hysterical

Pleease make sure you go to the loo before you listen or you will wet yourself
