    RHLSTP 386 - Alan Davies

    #386 Thirty-Eighty Choice - As the latest run at the Leicester Square Theatre comes to an end Richard is impressed with Adrian Chiles’ bathroom choices. His guest is comedian and actor Alan Davies. 
    They chat about avocado bidets, being called a S****bubble by Liam Gallagher, setting off Neil Kinnock’s burglar alarm, spending a huge amount of money on a chair you might see in an estate agents, how he managed to get the Jonathan Creek gig in spite of intense competition and why he nearly left QI. They also discuss Alan’s heart-breaking but brilliantly written memoir about the loss of his mother and the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father as a child.

    Retro RHLSTP 45 - Kay Mellor

    Retro RHLSTP 45 - Kay Mellor

    RETRO RHLSTP #45 Kay Mellor - RHLSTP comes to the Long Division Festival at the beautiful Wakefield Theatre Royal and Richard is impressed with the commitment the area has made to unpopular fruit and the world's most famous mulberry bush. His guest is the writer, actor, director, song-writer and possible badminton champion, Kay Mellor. 
    It's a writer's masterclass, showing the determination and talent that is needed to make it in the business (with Rich as the perfect example of how not to make it), with great stories about the genesis of Band of Gold, the importance of empathy for your characters, using real life stories and when to keep secrets and how a working class mum made it in a business so skewed towards men and what can be done to level the playing field. Plus Rich possibly lands his first ever job as a result of doing the podcast - though it's a part very much within his comfort zone.

    RHLSTP Book Club 15 - Alice Roberts

    RHLSTP Book Club 15 - Buried - A return to RHLSTP for the brilliant broadcaster, archaeologist and anatomist Professor Alice Roberts. We chat about her new book Buried and the previous book in the series Ancestors and the amazing science that allows us to piece together forgotten lives from bones, grave goods, language and DNA. Also why Trigger warnings aren’t a big deal and TRIGGER WARNING some chat about baby skeletons, what’s going on with headless corpses, why did a Roman burial have a big pipe coming out of it, writing stuff that you don’t know how to pronounce and then having to do the audiobook and was the Venerable Bede full of shit? A fascinating chat and another great book.

    RHLSTP 385 - Dara Ó Briain

    RHLSTP 385 - Dara Ó Briain

    #385 Do Not Listen On 2x Speed - Richard is disappointed about his daughter’s Easter egg, because it’s still Easter where we are, in the past and has an ultimatum for Ian Cadbury. His guest returns after just 9 years away. It’s the extremely fast-talking whirlwind of a man, Dara Ó Briain. 
    Chat includes the Irish James Bond, how Stephen Hawking ruined Terminator, the likelihood of Richard speaking fluent Spanish for the rest of his life and the impact of that on the theories of Infinite Universes, sending robots into space (and what happens the night before they go), depriving a comedian of an audience for two years, why Richard will never present Going for Gold and what he’d insist upon if he was at the helm of Blockbusters and to be honest such a depth and pace of comedy that you are going to need to listen on half speed to catch it all.
    Catch Dara doing what he does best on his latest stand up tour - https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/dara-o-briain-tickets/artist/28581

    Special - My Time Capsule 200!

    Special - My Time Capsule 200!

    Special - My Time Capsule 200! - Richard was very honoured to be asked to interview Michael Fenton-Stevens for his 200th episode of the excellent Time Capsule Podcast - a neat idea where guests are asked what four items they’d like to keep in a time capsule and which one they’d like to throw away. 
    A great chat incorporating harbouring grudges against games teachers, touring with the HeeBeeGeeBees, memories of doing shows with his dad and the importance of family over work.

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. A very funny and very interesting podcast 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 gems!

col2021 ,

much better energy with audience

but the al murray conversation was excellent

Pickle Rick-C24 ,

All the cool kids.

I was picking my children up from the youth club, and I overheard a group of cool kids calling it RHLSTP.
