    #38 Love - Richard discusses love with the Agony Aunt who turns out to be his nearby neighbour. They shared a cab home afterwards. Discretion means I can not discuss what happened after that.

    RHLSTP 363 - Laura Lexx

    RHLSTP 363 - Laura Lexx

    #363 What Women Want! - Richard has got Covid 19 - always late to the party - but nothing can stop him podcasting and so this remote recording carries on regardless (with social distancing of 100 miles, which the NHS has determined is fairly safe). His guest is comedian and author Laura Lexx. They discuss the genesis of her hilarious new book, Klopp Actually (Buy here- https://www.lauralexx.co.uk/klopp-actually), how lockdown prompted creative ways of working, whether Somerset should change its name, Perkin Warbeck, appearing in Panto and the worst thing to have in your mouth. Will this be the last RHLSTP ever? And who will host the show if it is. It’s all sorted out in the podcast and so this should be considered a last will and testament.
    Live RHLSTPs coming up in London, Bristol, Leicester and the Leicester Square Theatre. Guest and ticket link info here http://richardherring.com/rhlstpt/tour

    RHLSTP 362 - Peter Baynham

    #362 You Start Monday! - Wow, what’s this, a remote RHLSTP whilst we’re still allowed (at the time of recording) to go outside. We’re filling a little gap in our schedule with some remote pods, this one from the 6th January at 11am LA time with too gorgeous comedy behemoth Peter Baynham. The old flatmates discuss bad chat up lines, the freedom of podcasting, the brilliant Brain Cigar https://audioboom.com/channels/5053035, why it’s probably a good thing that Richard didn’t work on Ron’s Gone Wrong, where Peter was when Rudi G was undoing his pants, the Sliding Doors moments that made Peter’s career and saved Rich’s children’s lives and what might have been if Peter hadn’t stolen some photocopier paper in the early 90s and where Fist of Fun might go next.

    #36 Creation - In an interview from Richard Herring's Meaning of Life, Rich talks to Marcus Chown about the creation of the universe and whether science knows any more than anyone else.
    Are there infinite alternate universes and does absolutely everything happen (for no reason)?

    RHLSTP 361 - Chris Lynam

    #361 Hair Length Apartheid - It’s a New Year (for you, though Richard is just pretending) and Rich looks back on his weird and unsettling 2021, but definitely sees the positives in it all. Will this year be better than the last one or will the years just continue top get worse and worse until we all die? His guest is the king of the clowns and circuit legend, Chris Lynam, who you might know from his firework up the bum routine, but who has a whole lot more to him than that.
    They chat about what Chris remembers of the early alternative comedy scene, working with Ken Campbell on The Warp, Malcolm Hardee overestimating how easy it is to light fireworks in your buttocks, the Greatest Show on Legs, ErictheFred (check out some clips from this beautiful show here https://chrislynam.net/eric-the-fred/), what destroyed the spirit of alternative comedy (and Richard’s part in that), who destroyed the rainforest of Zimbabwe and how Chris nearly became impaled on a bed of nails. Plus the times that his perilous appearing act actually spilled over into real danger, the heart and soul of the clown and how Chris has managed to maintain the same level of madness without actually turning any more mad. This is a cracker of a show and if you haven’t heard of Chris you should definitely still listen. And do catch him live if you get the chance.

Outstanding

I’m not always a huge fan of this show, but the Miriam Margolyes episode is the best edition of any podcast I have ever listened to. I shall bookmark it for some future (hopefully never to happen) dark period when I need reminding how excellent people can be.

An essential part of life like sourdough and avocados.
